For us a mall, either CH or PM, is a nice place to kill some time when the weather sucks and you need to get out for a while. It would great if CH had a bit more 'energy' with a nice resturant or two. Now that Borders has closed, the energy has gotten closer to empty. The food court has also went downhill with the absence of McDonald's and Taco Bell.

Agreed. There is a lot of fast food restaurants, but also a lot of non-chain Mexican and Asian places too. There are even some soul food joints, some African places, ect. You can find many different ethnic restaurants throughtout the area that are a further breakdown of the types of places I already listed.

Rosie, I had heard that, about a new mall, in a couple different areas, one being several years ago when I worked briefly for Foleys.

I also agree that the set-up for parking/traffic around Chapel Hills is far too confusing, which is a big reason I avoid that area. Academy near Kelly Johnson et all is terrible.

I too have avoided that area since being caught in an epic traffic jam trying to turn left (east) on Academy - took roughly 7-8 left turn signals and 20-30 minutes to make a single left hand turn. Never again.

The Citadel Mall has been handed back to the lender, avoiding a foreclosure. Chapel Hills is wrapped up in the deal to a minor extent.

So I've had a light case of the "flu" lately and hadn't done my walking in quite a while, and still wanted to stay warm. So I thought I'd drive over to Chapel Hills Mall and walk the mall. It's the first time I've ever been down every wing on both levels. It's larger than I thought, and I do believe it could be a little confusing in terms of layout. No, it's not the nicest mall I've ever been in, but it's a pretty average mall. I certainly don't see anything that negative about it...other than the number of empty stores.

Oh, and Jimmie Johns has finally opened up in one of the two empty restaurants in the parking lot area of the mall, just across from Barnes & Nobles.

When we moved to the Springs, we used to love to go to the Chapel Hills mall and watch the ice skaters, from the food court!! Really a shame they closed the rink. I had never seen an ice skating rink inside a mall.


How amazing that was to see kids and everyone enjoying a place to ice skate! That's progress for you; at that time I guess the retail space seemed like a better idea.

I was just gonna post this. Goodbye to both of them it seems. I'm old enough to remember when the Chapel Hills mall was new. My parents built a house at Near Dublin and Academy and I remember my mother arguing with my dad about who the hell would live "All the way up here in the middle of nowhere" LOL
