Located in central Pennsylvania, the Schuylkill Mall (also locally known as the Frackville Mall) has a number of stores anchored by Kmart, Sears, and the Bon Ton. This location also is anchored by Black Diamond Antiques, giving shoppers a unique consignment shopping option, as well as Famous Labels, which has discount clothing and housewares. Every year, the mall is also host to a number of special events for families.
One of the most popular activities for visitors to the Schuylkill Mall is clothing shopping, and there are a number of clothing stores that may interest visitors, including the following: Gap, Nirvana's Closet, Bonworth, The Deb Shop, Victoria's Secret, and Brackney Leather. There are also jewelry, accessories, and shoe stores such as Payless Shoe Source, The Shoe Department, Kay Jewelers, and Littman Jewelers.

The Schuylkill Mall was voted "Best Shopping Center of 2009,'' and part of the reason for that title is the many events they hold for visitors. Some of the most popular include fashion shows, bridal expos, Schuylkill County Junior Idol, and rabies clinics. They also have annual mall-wide "sidewalk sales'' in which all of the stores are encouraged to have highly discounted items for sale in the hallways of the mall, similar to a yard sale or rummage sale.
