I remember that. Willowbrook was also where a woman murdered back in the 1990's. They suspected her husband, but it looked like someone had jumped her and robbed her as she was getting into her car after shopping.

I think it went four years, then someone did a newspaper article on the story, and a woman who read it realized that she had dated the husband and he had told her that his wife had been murdered under those exact circumstances, but he told her this story before the wife was dead.

Bad things happen at malls. {{JARRING CHORD}}

Short Hills is my best.

Newport is my least favorite--they charge for parking and is full of inner-city trash.

GSP is ok.

Now they are trying to fix it up, cutting the size of the indoor mall in half and adding more outdoor facilities. They're now calling it "Voorhees Town Center."
Deptford Mall killed Echelon. It just took them years to figure it out. There are back roads that practically go to Echelon from Gloucester County. Before Deptford was built most of the customers for Echelon were from Gloucester County. They didn't do a study before building Deptford. If they had built a mall further south, it wouldn't have killed Echelon.

There was a small mall on 130 about at the border of Willingboro & Cinnaminson. It just fizzled. I think it fizzled before Burlington Center was built, but not sure. It wasn't worth going to.

i generally don't like malls and don't consider going to one a hobby but rather a necessity. the one i usually go to is Rockaway which is ok, it's been trying to upscale itself for years. if i had to pick a favorite i'd say bridgewater. short hills is good if you want to do some blue blood and nouveau riche people watching. paramus malls do nothing for me, haven't been to newport in over 15 years and don't miss it, woodbridge and menlo are ok, freehold raceway seems to be nothing like when i was last there, nearly 20 years ago. burlington is eh, cherry hill is ok, haven't been to moorestown in forever either, that in the day was fair. i'm sure i'm missing some.

I like Brunswick Square Mall. It is a small mall, but they have everything that you need so you don't have to walk all around to get what you need and they have a movie theatre attached. Plus, its 5 min from my house. Next would either have to be Freehold or QuakerBridge for me.

Correct, I am about 95% certain Delran is between Willingboro and Cinnaminson.
