I'm sure it's probably going to rank high but would be interested to see your link for that...

Let's see, MSP has the Mall of America, Southdale, Rosedale, Ridgedale, Brookdale (to be Shingle Creek), Burnsville Center, Maplewood Mall, Valley Creek Mall, Midtown Global Market, Gaviidae Common, The Edina Galleria, Northtown Mall, and... There's more than that.

And.... Like someone said earlier, downtOwn Minneapolis and St Paul are skyway interconnected which kind of creates two massive shopping malls.

do you still have the link? The link posted above is a Dallas link with no figures, and both from Dallas sources.

I can make a site and say Dallas has the most shopping centers, but without data does that make it true?

Lets do the math. There are 289 shopping centers in Houston so about one for every 20,700 people.
How many are in Dallas?

Interesting Mall facts

Early Malls in the US
-Paddock Arcade- 1850- Watertown, New York (listed as second oldest enclosed mall the US but can't find the 1st)
-The Arcade- 1890- Cleveland, Ohio
-Roland Park- 1907- Baltimore Maryland
-Lake View Shore- 1916- Duluth, Minnesota
-Country Club Plaza-1923- Kansas City, Missouri
-River Oaks Shopping Center- 1927- Houston, Texas
-Westminister Arcade- 1928- Providence, Rhode Island
-Grandview Avenue- 1928- Grandview Heights, Ohio
-Highland Park Village- 1931- Highland Park, Texas (one of the early early turned inwards malls)

It is funny that these shopping centers started out as enclosed buildings connected together, then moved to street facing stores, then flipped back to enclosed centers and now the trend is once again in favor of the open life centers.

Northpark Dallas is a local shopping destination.

Houston Galleria is the regional shopping mecca.


Houston Galleria - 375 stores - 2.4 million square feet of retail space - 4 floors

Northpark Dallas - 235 stores - 2 million square feet of retail space - 2 floors
