I stopped by at Collin Creek Mall recently to pick up something and it pleasantly surprised me. Whole mall had a facelift and looks really nice. Children's area looked interesting and with Amazing Jack Entertainment inside the building, it can be a good destination for fun shopping trips for young families.

I went there for a birthday and it was real fun for kids and of course for us as we dropped kids at Amazing Jacks and had lunch at food court after some well needed shopping. Dillard's was having a nice sale.

It has? The last time I was there a few weeks ago, more stores were closing (PacSun and Children's Place) and it was looking sadder than ever. The children's area is not bad, but very small and poorly policed. I heard the city of Plano recently put up $600k or so for re-development. That's not even going to be nearly enough to revitalize that mall.

It reminds me of the renovation of Richardson Square several years ago. That mall was too far gone and while the renovations were nice and they got a couple new tenants, it wasn't enough. I suspect Simon renovated it just enough to keep it open until they gutted the tenants and moved the good ones to Firewheel once they opened that.

Collin Creek will never be able to re-attract back the tenants they lost to Firewheel and Shops at Allen/Fairview.

Um....

I disagree with every single word in this post. Every. Single. Word.

I am at CC at least once a month due to obligations I have as a volunteer with a certain group, so I see it all the time.

It...er...sucks. It's a total trash can.

I never saw the old Richardson Square Mall, but I like what it turned into.

I don't know, I liked it. May be after reading all the sad reviews reality looked relatively better. It was my first trip after three years. With so many malls within 10 minutes drive, I hardly venture out. At least it is not deteriorating like Richardson Square mall. Never say never, with Haggard Estates and revival of Richardson and East Plano, there is potential. Obviously Dillard's, Macy's, JCP and Sears think so too.

Do you even live in DFW?

There is no such place as Richardson Square Mall anymore, and has not been for years now. The shopping center that replaced it is thriving.

Seems you trash Richardson at every opportunity.

I do and did see demise of Richardson Square mall and the way it was deteriorating. I know it's not there any more. BTW if you read the quote you used, I mentioned revival of Richardson. Trashing Richardson?

What you said would indicate to the reader that the mall still exists.
