Great Mall of Bay Area has lots of great deals with their brand name outlet stores and discount warehouse chains. However, couple this with an undergoing renovation, it gives a post-apocalyptic feel - you'd think the whole mall is closing down and everybody is having a clearance sale. Hopefully, when the renovation is finished, it would be a lot brighter... More

We came here for a quick visit so that my fiancé could exchange some shoes. We ended up spending quite a few hours there and spending money we shouldn't have. But it was a good visit and one very much worth a visit if you want to shop, eat or play. I would rate this visit a A-

Enjoyed a full day of shopping in this mall. It's important that each one has a plan on what to buy and from where. We were clear on what we needed like Levi Jeans , Polo t-shirts, formal shirts and pants from Van Huesen, UGG shoes, sports shows from Nike and ASIC, handbag from Michael Korea. Ended up having to...

We had a really fun family outing with older children. We had lunch and spent a few hours exploring the mall and shopping. What a great experience! The mall has tons of good quality shops, large variety, appealing to all ages. Easy to find, easy to park and all well mapped out, indicated.

Great outlet shopping without going too far. Prepare to spend at least three hours. There is lots of branded shops and also discount shops too. Food, drink and rest areas available.

This is a huge mall...thankfully it's an indoor mall and so you can comfortably shop around. Be prepared for a lot of walking as well as crowds over weekends. Shopping over the weekdays is quite pleasant. There are several outlet stores here as well as a large food court. Overall a really nice place to shop.

If you're looking for swarms of pushy, rude people, then this is the place for you! Prices were average--not worth fighting the crowds. Won't go back.
