Horrible Cologne Smell Throughout the Mall 6/29/2008

Southpoint used to be my favorite place to shop but no more. Their Abercrombie and Fitch store has ruined it for me. It was bad enough when their god awful thick cologne could only be smelled near that particular store but lately the thick soupy perfume is permeating all corners of Southpoint. You can literally smell that mess at the doorway before you enter the mall if you're coming in from the ""Streets of Southpoint"" area. I'm not even allergic to the stuff and it makes my eyes water and I taste it in my throat. GROSS!! My girlfriend is allergic to the perfume and she breaks out in hives if she goes to the mall. It's a shame. Usually Southpoint is a fun shopping experience (if you can avoid being harrassed by the Survey people downstairs near GNC) but not any more. I'm glad the Apple Store is outside. I'll still go there. But anything indoors? No way. I'm avoiding the indoor shops at Southpoint like the plague these days. Hopefully Abercrombie and Fitch will get better ventilation so they're not ruining the mall for people who HATE their nasty cologne. more

Clean, safe and friendly - bad food court 3/10/2008

Fantastic mall! I have never come across an unfriendly employee at the mall (I can't speak for kiosk employees as I do not shop those). Everyone is helpful. The mall is always clean and free from people who loiter. On Saturday nights there are a lot of teens but security is in full force and I rarely see them loitering for long. Weekday mornings is a mom and tot haven. The play area is mostly clean. My only complaint is that they do not enforce the rules always. Sometimes there are kids as tall as I am playing there and that is very dangerous for little tots. The play area is designated for smaller kids. Great restaurants abound - Firebirds, California Pizza Kitchen, etc. Unfortunately the eateries in the food court is very repetitive. There are 4 places that serve Chinese type buffet food. I highly recommend Five Guys for a great burger and fries. This is by far the best mall in the area. Pros: Many nice restaurants to choose from, clean, safe. Cons: Repetitive food venues in food court, overcrowded kids' play area more

Great place to shop, people watch or just hang out.... 1/29/2007

I was very worried moving from the D.C. area with it's great shopping and awesome resturants to the Raleigh/Durham area which I knew little about. But, I was so happy to find a wonderful mall with good food near by in the Triangle area. I live three miles from the Streets at Southpoint off of Grandale and love it! This area and mall are one of the best places to be... great shopping, good food, convience to the airport, Duke, Chapel hill, now all we need is a good theatre for some broadway shows. I can dream... Seriously this is a great place to shop or just people watch. Parking and getting out of the mall can be a bit crazy at peek times which is a mild complaint. By the way, you have to check out ""Tropical Smoothie"" at the mall... tell them Tracy sent you---I have a addiction to that place . Pros: Everything. Cons: Getting out of the mall and parking during peak times. more

it's everything and the kitchen sink 11/2/2006

Southpoint is one of my favorite places to shop, eat and just plain hang out. The design of the shopping center has both outdoor and indoor shopping. The shops all seem to be well maintained with friendly staff and top quality merchandise. Great resteraunts located in the shopping center, for your dining pleasure. Pros: lots of food, shopping and great atmosphere Cons: restaurants usually packed for dinner more

WHAT AN AWESOME MALL!!!! 4/27/2006

This is by far the greatest mall in the triangle area. Great variety in the stores, more upper class. The other malls should be hanging their collective heads in shame! more

pretty and relaxing 12/5/2005

This is prolly the nicest looking mall I've ever been to. easy access. This mall was typical looking on the outside, step in and its very eye pleasing. features the typical mall shops like abercrombie, hects, nordstrom, and the like. However it also features a bose store,has a sharper image that has massaging chairs to try out I recommend using them after a long day of busy shopping there. home decor stores were nice like bombay. very neat items in there! Prices were'nt bad for a mall. I also checked out some clothing stores like bodyco and they had some really nice sweaters for 15 bucks! I think one thing this place could use is a radio shack! I also think they lack in electronics/tech stores. They need more than just an apple store and bose! This mall seems to have a younger crowd. not very hectic Pros: atmosphere, well planned, location Cons: no radio shack, not much tech stores, exting can be tricky more

GO GO GO 3/21/2004

This mall will always amaze me. I now live in northern Florida where shopping a bit to be desired. I miss being that close to a super mall. The customer service at the Nordstroms, Apple Store, and the movie theater are top notch. It has some limited variety in the fact that plus size woman have trouble at that mall finding everything they need. The restaraunts are supurb. Where ever you are you need to go to this mall. Pros: Customer Service, Apple Store, Location more

Livesomewhereelsetocompare 3/11/2003

This is a great mall. We lived in the NE (CT, Hartford area) last year and it was horrible. The shopping was pittiful and so were the restaurants. The people weren't any better as far as making you feel welcome and friendly. We might as well as not had neighbors because we weren't NE we didn't belong. We couldn't be happier to be back and Southpoint is a great addition to NC. Appreciate what you have unless you go elsewhere and see what they have. If you like it better, stay there. If you came from somewhere else and don't like it here; maybe you should look to go elsewhere as we did. We came back for that reason. Life is way too short to be unhappy. more

Main St a great in nice weather 1/22/2003

Love the architecture. Stores are typical mall stores/prices, some are new to area. Better selection of restaurants than most malls. There seems to be plenty of parking, however leaving is a nightmare! Who designed that parking lot? You can see the exits, but you can't get to them. ""Welcome to Hotel California, you can check out anytime you want, but you can never leave!"" I don't think Hects has any employees! I might shop there if I could find a salesperson to ring up the sale. Pros: good restaurants, plenty of parking Cons: poor parking exits more

OVER RATED! 1/17/2003

It's not worth the drive. The best thing about Southpoint Mall is leaving Southpoint Mall. If you have a local mall in your area, it would be well worth your time and money to invest it there. Pros: close to interstate, better to view in car, review mirror Cons: It was built more

The most awesome mall! 11/3/2002

This mall has EVERYTHING you could ever want (except for a Crate & Barrel but we won't hold that against them). The best of both worlds - an indoor section and an outdoor section so you can go to the mall on a nice day and still enjoy the weather. Great parking too, I've never had a problem finding a space and I go about twice a week. Check it out if you have not yet, it's worth driving a few extra minutes. Pros: Good Parking, Variety of Shops, Clean and Pleasant Cons: Too Many Teenagers, Not enough restaurant more

Great First Visit?! 8/29/2002

I had been avoiding the mall for a while due to the crowds. Finally had a houce full of teeangers from out of town who wanted to go to the mall so we went to Southpoint one afternoon on a weekday. The mall is very nice with some great shops. However, when we wlaked out of the mall at 4 p.m. it was to discover someone had attempted to break in to my car. Tried to flag security down but to no avail. THey were too busy chatting to one another. Finally got the city police to respond after an hour. I think I'll probably continue shopping at Crabtree. more

4 words: Pottery Barn for Kids 8/27/2002

When I checked out Southpoint, I had no idea what I was in for. They closed down the other mall in Durham (that the businesses surrounding it depend on) for this. Another fabricated place to spend money. There are stores on streets in Europe, but guess what? They aren't in the middle of nowhere - they're downtown. Which is how our downtowns used to be. I admit, however, SAS IS A MALL. Yes, it's expensive. Yes, it's disgustingly trendy (Pottery Barn for kids? Dear God.). And the restaurants are all amazing. To be expected. But instead of driving all the way out there to pretend you are strolling through some actual street, support your local businesses. They live with us, CEOs don't. They give back to the community, big corporations don't. They make our city a more diverse, fun place to shop and eat, and not a cookiecutter town. Pros: choices, great food Cons: closes too early, too far out, not locally owned more

Nice, but not worth the drive 8/17/2002

Having been to all three regional malls, this one certainly gets high marks for glitz. But, all of the store fronts close in on you, though, and it's a little claustrophobic on the lower level. Having a Nordstrom and Apple stores are nice, but I can usually get what I need back in Raleigh. It looks like they tried too hard to make it appear like a street from downtown Durham when they should have taken all of the money they put into it, and put it in downtown Durham. Pros: Nordstrom, Apple Store Cons: Excessive pastiche more

10 8/8/2002

The Streets at Southpoint is like take a vacation close to home. Lots to see & do, eat & shop! Pros: Main Street fountains, Nordstsrom, Restaurants more

never thought i would like it 8/8/2002

the streets at southpoint is an amazing mall. i am not one to like big expansive corporate monster malls but the access to quality merchandise that streets supplies to this area is needed. the format is inviting and doesn't have that closed in, synthetic feel of most malls. parking is getting more difficult but they have obviously planned ahead in that their are always plenty of empty spaces (even if they are a bit away sometimes). this is the only mall i go to now - and except for big purchases like furniture, bikes, cars i do all my shopping here. Pros: everything you need, quality stores, good selection Cons: its a mall!, prices are high more

Great--for NC 8/1/2002

I was pleasently relieved when a decent mall arrived in Durham. However, the mall has no real upscale stores, just the typical Nordstrom, Abercrombie, Banana, etc. etc, which is what I think the triangle needs though. Most of the time the mall serves my needs, but a few designers would not hurt. The outdoor atmosphere makes it very refreshing to stroll around. Pros: Outdoor Area, Valet, Nordstrom Cons: Restaurants, typical stores, not carpetted more
