Big malls are ok but I like the ones like Northpark in Dallas, or the Galleria in Houston. I hate all the Mills malls. Tacky and not much discounting imo. But for my favorite shopping experience I like big city downtowns the best for shopping. Downtowns like San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago and midtown Manhattan. They're outdoors, they have the best stores and no tacky food courts.

Personally, I LOVE the big Malls

Then again, I LOVE to shop
!

Me, too. I am embarrassed at how delighted I get when I discover a new place to shop. Not that I buy so much, it is just the whole ambiance, I guess.

I love going to the mall. I've never seen one that was too big.

I dislike malls and only go there when I have no other choice. I avoid them 99% of the time.

The only mall I really love is in Scottsdale, Az. and it's the Fashion Square Mall. All kinds of stores for everyone. I do like the mall, but I only shop there about 2 times a year, these days. Because everything is way, way expensive now.

Is there a reason why you're moving from Prescott ? I am asking because I have heard so many nice things about it as a retirement place.

The selection is mainly geared towards women and teenagers. Not much else, therefore I rarely visit the mall. However there is a big mall that just added a Dick's Sporting Goods, I like that. It's almost like Heaven and even has escalators leading to a 2nd level.

I'm still a teenager, and I love hanging out at the arcade and food court at the mall with friends. I think regional open-air malls are great for teens since you get the sunlight, gardens, big fountains, and beautiful architect and better stores. Indoor malls are still nice in that their big, and have more to do.

I think malls now-a-days are tourist attractions, for teenagers, and for 20-30s girls, and then for families with lower-income. And, then for some people after work it's a good rest place from traffic.

My area might be getting a Macy's and Target mall with all the stuff I like. Since our nearest mall is now run-down with gang bangers, and the mall looks old and unattractive. Thankfully it has a theater, 2 arcades, a big food court, laser tag, and cool shops that keep customers coming. And they re-did the mall to make it look nicer and they have also amped up security, but the mall is still old and there is still gang activity.

Yeah, basically it's for older folks (hence that it is a retirement place) and for people who are into the cowboy/cowgirl life too. That's just not me. I don't fit in. Too many people passed rumors/gossip about me here (just because I don't dress like them). And it's just a little too small of a town for me too (even though it's growing, but not the kind of businesses that I'm interested). Just the way I feel about here.

I'm originally from the southeast (Texas, near Galveston) and I miss being near the water (beaches and lakes). I hate driving for more than 2 hours just to go to the lake or the beach. It's too dry for me here.

These are my reasons. If that bothered you, okay, that's you then. Peace.
