Although I've never been there, from what I've seen of Monmouth Mall on the internet it seems kinda drab.
Freehold Raceway seems to have a little bit of everything, upscale and mainstream, they even still have a 99 cent store! And Robot Galaxy. Wouldn't see that in Short Hills.
I went to SH once, I dont plan on going back. Sure nice to look at and lots of Real Housewife skin to look at, but I felt really out of place and there's NO WHERE TO EAT. And I hate Sbarros so dont try that..lol

Local-Hamilton Mall (it's the closest, decent shopping mall near my house)
Not Local-Bridgewater Mall (spacious and great way to kill some time), Woodbridge Mall (it's okay), Palisades Mall (great, but in NY)

Dislikes: Shore Mall, Echelon Mall (They both SUCK!!!) Menlo Park Mall (too boring, no stores that I really liked!)

After reading some of the PPs, I think the Central/North Jerseyians would DIE if they had to deal with the malls in South Jersey! Other than the Deptford & Cherry Hill malls, most of the SJ malls are very small.
