I just moved back to the city and I wanted to check out all the places I liked to shop; Grand Ave was one of those places. Not anymore, and not just because it needs to be restuctured. I find it appalling that after spending more than 3 hours getting reaquainted with the Grand Ave Mall, and spending more than $80, that I had to spend an additional $10 to get out of the parking lot. Apparently there is a 3 hour limit, I was there 3 hours and 22 minutes. I was told the information is posted at the entrance ( I must have missed it), and it was not posted on the ticket I received upon entering. I now know why the parking structure, that use to be full of cars on Saturdays, is half empty. From now on I'll just go to Bayshore, Mayfair, or some other mall.
Cons: Can't spend more than 3 hours in the mall.
