That makes a bit more sense: Malls can be "filler".

Yeah - you aren't a shopper. A really great mall has all that usual stuff but has all the great stores in one place. They have some you love to look in but can't always buy from....the ones you love to browse through and often find a trinket or two and then there are the ones you know will have what you arae looking for.

I'll pick Lenox in Atlanta because I would always make sure to spend a day there when we lived there. I would start at the Crate & Barrell and peruse for some stocking stuffers and perhaps some fun stuff to use when entertaining. I then would wander over to the Anthrapologie store -- again stocking stuff, fun household decor and unusual clothing.....into Macys for the usual socks, ties, and perhaps pajama pants for the Dad. Stop at the Lush Boutique in Macys for fun bath stuff. Head to the J. Crew -- much bigger and better than the Crew on King Street...then to Ralph Lauren....Club Monaco, oh look Burberry - just lookin'.....Sephora, See's Candies...oh I'm on a role.......Kate Spade is calling my name. All in one spot.

You have to enjoy shopping......

Well yes, but as a shopper, wouldn't you rather go into boutiques and individualistic stores? I may be way off but I'm just curious.

I want both -- I want the convenience of a good mall and the eperience of heading downtown and walking around. I lived in Toronto -- I could hang out at a mall all day or hit any part of town for a great, unique shopping experience.

I can't order online as I need to try stuff on.

Let's just say I'm starting to love the shopping complexes in MP and Tanger for this reason.

My son is 24 and I think his "Go-To" place is Eddie Bauer in Tanger. They have polos in tall sizes and he needs that - he's only 6'2", but it's all torso. His work has a casual dress code and the first time I saw him walk in his door straight from work wear nice shorts, a polo, and chacos - I raised an eyebrow. He told me, I dress better than my boss - he wears jean shorts and t-shirts.

and not to make you all jealous, but we have 3 Macy's where I live. I don't go to any of them. Maybe it's because I have a huge selection of stores where I live, but I'm not that all impressed. It's probably mostly because I don't really care where I shop though. I think that all of you would be in hog heaven at Southpark Mall in Charlotte and it's only a 3 to 3 1/2 hour drive depending on traffic. The flagship store there is actually Belk - 4 levels. But there is Belk, Macy's, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Dillards as the anchors. Sears used to be there, but got run out years ago. And there is a new outlet mall that is supposed to open in a few months - more of like a Tangers, but I think with a different owner.

Southpark sounds like a normal mall. I'm sure I would love it!
