I grew up loving some of the classic "brat pack" type films of the 80's like The Breakfast Club and Fast Times and Ridgemont High. Those movies are great, but in real life, I do not want to "hang" with rowdy kids at the mall for hours. That is what I enjoy about this mall. They keep a tight rein on those out of control kids that like to annoy customers who actually (gasp) go a mall to SHOP!?
It's a clean, roomy mall with a lot of stores (JC Penney, Sears, Target, Kohl's) and a lot of smaller, independent type shops and kiosks. A nice food court (with a great sit down restaurant, King's Buffet) inside the classic shopping area.
