off hand, Lubbock has only one mall, affectionately called 'The Mall'
if you are doing some general shopping for jeans, casual clothes etc, you can find them all here.(Dockers, Levi's brand etc) ..I usually just visit Dillard's and JcPenney when I am there ......... standard chain stores as well if your looking for American specifc stores...American Eagle, Hollister etc...
JcP usually has what I need and for decent prices
(f you do need cosmetics, you might head to Dillard's at the mall. This location has one of the the highest generating revenue cosmetic counters outside of the their Dallas Market....in that respect, one of the larger floor spaces for cosmetics- you can find a wide array of national brands here)
on one hand, the Lubbock mall is the largest single level mall in Texas....in that respect, the layout is not too user friendly...add a wing here, add another wing the next year-you sorta get the idea.
(FYI, two Dillard's buildings at the mall..the one on the north end has cosmetics)
for ex, if you are looking for a little better type clothing stores you can drive further outside the loop on Quaker and 82nd ...for example King's Gate Shopping Center on 82nd/Slide kingsgatecenter.com/index.php/merchant-map (stores on both sides of Quaker) for ex. Ann Taylor, Bananna Republic, Chico's,Coldwater Creek, Men's/women's-Josepeh Banks, Tailbots,
if you happen to go, have lunch at Pei Wei Chinese Bistro..faster food version of PF Chang restaurant
James Avery Craftsman..jewelry crafted in Texas
if you need some western attire, boots etc. at 50th and Slide is Dollar Western Wear
across the mall is an Old Navy, a few doors down is Rudy's BBQ, Rockfish Seafood
are you staying near the campus or on the SW side?
Lubbock is laid out fairly easy....driving north/south the streets are numbered....driving east/west the streets are basically alphabetized..Ave. A, Ave B, Ave C etc, then again Akron, Boston, Chicago. etc, .
in general, if you don't have Target stores in Canada there is a newer superstore on the far west of Lubbock..Marsha Sharp Freeway
fashionable items, home accessories etc., plus groceries, good prices
definitely a step up from Wal-Mart
: ) one thing to do is to feed the nuremous Canadian geese that come to Lubbock for winter!!
if you would like to send me a PM, I can try to help a little more with things to do, places to eat etc...... a little more info might be helpful... visiting, on business, family, solo etc,?
