Coming from Massachusetts where I had a choice of three malls within 20 minutes to Manchester where I have one mall in that distance, hasn't been as bad as I had expected. The store selection is decent, and I've spent numerous Saturday morning browsing. I'm not too fond of the layout, which is one floor. I have yet to learn exactly how to navigate from one store to the next in the shortest distance, but I still like the shopping experience. I've heard it's come quite a ways in the past years, and I'm glad I moved here while it was at this point.
