We visited this outlet mall for a quick shopping spree while we had time to spare. It was located close to our hotel so we decided to take a peek. The mall is quite big and has many stores. Some of the stored had some really good deals when we were there so it ended up being quite enjoyable. The... More

Pros - Fantastic deals going on the outlets stores inside. Ghiraldelli sells lower than their SFO store. Nike outlet had more stuff than the outdoor outlet in Gilroy which was too hot for us to bear. Likewise with the other outlet sores as compared with the one in Gilroy - in my opinion. Unless you have a specific store in... More

I love shopping at the Great Mall for my kids! They have all the great stores for kids, including Carters, Osh Kosh, Gymboree Outlet, Justice, Stride Rite, and Childrens Place Outlet. For bigger kids, they have Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostle, and American Eagle. I personally love the Gap Outlet and Group USA. There are plenty of food courts and... More

This was our first time at this mall. We visited the food court right before eight (my receipt show 8:03pm), got our food, sat at the table and took two bites when a security officer approached us and told us the mall was closed and we needed to leave ASAP. We said we would. A few minutes later we had... More

I absolutely loved the Great Mall of the Bay Area. Me and my dad went there on a weekday and arrived early so we could avoid the masses. The stores opened at 10a.m. and were not crowded at all. I especially loved the Abercrombie & Fitch outlet : The prices are amazing compared to the flagship store in New York!... More

Really down market Mall with items in shops you would not find in jumble sale. Friends in San Fran found it hilarious we made the journey out as it is a local joke. Would definitely not recommend.

We visited the mall in March 2009 and were quite pleased with the choice of shops. Unlike some other malls there is a big number of "everyday shops" with partly good discounts on top. We liked especially the Abercrombie and Hollister stores and the Timberland store aswell. They didn´t have the latest trends at Abercrombie, but you could find some... More

Last fall was my first trip to the Great Mall, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The shops are good to excellent; lots of space and activities for kids; easy to get to from the Bay area, and the food court was superb - especially the Indian food at Swagat. I just loved it, along with a pastry shop that I... More
