This is a struggling mall. They had a lower price theater, then decided to get rid of it, and got a couple big box stores added on. It still isn't bringing in many people. They are now considering another theater. Good idea. Bland. Some stores,...More

The mall is starting to show its age, but if you're in a hurry for clothes and things, it's a good place. Not generally too difficult to find parking

Although this mall needs improvement, there are a few key stores which are essential to the mall's success. The atmosphere isn't great, and on most days you could roll a bowling ball down the middle without hitting a person, but it's better than nothing. Still...More

Liked having Kohl's, Younkers, JC Penney and TJ Max stores. Found a lot of bargains! It's a good mall for walkers too. I put some miles on my shoes!

North Grand Mall - nothing too special about it and I wouldn't consider it a spectacular place. There are some of the typical stores there like Younkers, Claires, Victoria's Secret and such. You can get some shopping done, but I wouldn't consider it a tourist...More

The current and past management companies running this mall "have been weighed, you have been measured, and been found wanting." Far too many spaces have remained vacant for years. One restaurant / bar was closed, ostensibly to admit a higher class, higher volume restaurant /...More
