We stop into this “Outlet Mall” several times a year to brows shop or at times, actually make a purchase. However, this is unquestionably not the place to go “during the holidays, because everyone comes here!” This place gets extremely packed, “particularly during those last minute shopping days for Christmas which I found out the hard way last year!” The...

We were on our way from Santa Cruz to San Francisco & called into the mall for a particular item requested by our son. Stephanie in American Eagle went out of her way to assist us in finding the article with telephone numbers, prices & stores in SF where they had the item in stock. It's a large, attractive mall...

The Great Mall is very big and includes a variety of brand name shops. There are various sit down restaurants such as Mayflower (we like it for dim sum), a food court, and various common areas. Its so large if you walk it you also get some walking exercise in for the day. There is also a movie theater (Century... More

Must visit place, huge shopping mal, good food, all brands available, you cant finish one wing in 2 hours if you start from Gate 1. Take atleast 3 to 4 hrs if you need to visit most of the shops. Even if you do window shopping thats gone a eat quite a lot of time.

This place is not called the Great Mall for nothing. It is very big. All the big brand shops are located withing the mall. They also have a cinema too. Only problem I found was the toilets, they are very far away. You see a sign, you follow the sung, you have walked a 1/4 mile before you even know... More

A very good area to visit. There are different shops wherein you can get almost everything with lot of discounts. All major brands have there outlets over there,parking facility is available. A good time-pass during weekend with friends, a big area for food court where you can get every type of food. Many shoppers visit this place.

Been going to the GM since I was little, so I'm super biased--sue me :P Having this mall transform before my eyes over the years (i.e. suddenly theatre, suddenly swanky outlets like Coach & MK, suddenly nicer Starbucks, etc.) has really made me appreciate the new renovations they keep doing to this place. These outlets are a steal for the... More

Surprised at the lack of aesthetics this mall has for being in such a $$ neighborhood. I don't think this mall is an accurate reflection of the demographic. It's huge and there is a large selection of vendors. Shoppers who visit are young adults, teens, the usual mall walkers.
