Plus, NorthPark has HomeGoods, Old Navy, Nordstrom Rack, etc right across the street.

You don't have to shop at Dress Barn in a strip center to get a good deal- and lets face it, a trip to NorthPark is way more exciting, even for the less affluent shoppers coming from other parts of the metroplex.
Totally agree , North Park doesn't have to be a luxury destination , I find plenty of deals on a regular basis . The Gap there usually has far more discounts than any other store around . Now ......I'm still pissed that they closed down Desigual
But CC is pretty much dead , compare to even 7 years ago , that mall looks like a dead zone . I go there time to time when I want Macy's deals , since nobody shops there and they also surprisingly offer a better selection.

I really dont get all the hysteria about CCM. I just looked it up, Collin Creek Mall is over 30 years old. Guess what people? Just like houses, cars and any other physical apparatus, Malls get old. They start out young and hip, and age, and then newer, younger, flashier malls pop up. It's a cycle. And it will affect every other mall, with the possible exception of Northpark. Remember when Willow Bend was all the rage? It was going to be the luxury mall of America...how's that working out? Stonebriar is kicking its butt up and down the the tollway. Town East Mall, Valley View, and other malls too were all great malls at some time. In about 10-15 years, Firewheel, Stonebriar, Village of Allen/Fairview will all be old, outdated malls too that no one goes to anymore. JUst give it time.

Would you believe that Town East is one of the highest grossing malls in the area and has been for years. It's the only mall on that side of Dallas County and serves areas all to the east. I don't care for it or the nightmare traffic around Town East so we don't frequent that mall.

I believe it. It's not even all that bad; to hear people talk about it you'd think it was a rinky dink 5 and dime store. It's much nicer than Valley View...nicer than Collin Creek even.

Dress Barn in a strip center to get a good deal
I wish I was the CEO of Dress Barn. Pretty sure I could goose sales by 10% just by changing the name to something other than Dress Barn, and then use my giant bonus to continue my plans to take over the world.

I drive to Collin Creek Mall from McKinney twice a month for Tiny Tot Time that's sponsored by Chick-fil-A there. Mrs. Peggy comes from the Arlington CFA to sing songs and read stories to toddlers. It's free and the kids get a goodie bag too. It's not the nicest mall, but it's good enough for TTT and if you have to run to a store.
