Or maybe a personal shopper?

No, the size and scope of mindless shopping is what I am afraid of.

Talk to some people who man the kiosks - they really enjoy the heat or when we get some kick butt thunderstorm.

I thought the totally outdoors feel wasn't the best idea for this weather. I wonder if this was Minnesota, would folks feel great about snowshoeing between stores?

It isn't conducive to just a stroll. However, if the joint makes a significant amount of money from destination folks from Mexico, it may not matter.

ahh. Mindless shopping is the best kind of shopping! Maybe not in the heat, but when it cools down it's one of my favorite things!

I think the biggest problem with La Canterra right now is that all of the water features are turned off due to water restrictions. We shopped there all last summer, and while it was cooler, it definitely felt cooler with the water running through the mall. We were there last weekend and it was awful.

Heh, when I looked at the temp while turning off my van after pulling into the parking place at 2:00pm today (it was 102), I thought of this thread.

It was positively GLORIOUS at La Cantera today! Yes, it was hot, but with the lack of rain that we've experienced here lately, it was also dry! 100 degree temps with low humidity is FAB in my book!!! The mall was relatively busy and no sweaty people! PERFECT day for shopping!!!

I LOVE La Cantera!!

(tho I do miss the water features )
