If you're like me and appreciate luxury products (but don't necessarily buy them that is!), you will find the Shops At Liberty Place to be very fun to visit- for the first few times that is. Nothing is cheap here. Yes the food court is decent. It's not anything out of the ordinary. There are less food offerings than at the malls in South Jersey. Yes it is very clean and it's the closest mall in Philadelphia to the Time Warner Center in New York. But really, after you've lived around Philly as long as I have, Liberty Place becomes kind of boring. How many times does one need to go to Express? And most of us don't have the need to go to Crabtree & Evelyn, Aveda, The Body Shop, and Douglas Cosmetics on a regular basis.
The Shops at Liberty Place aren't wonderful, but they certainly aren't bad. They don't have any anchor; that is the problem. You can't afford to shop here that often unless you have deep pockets, though.
