Very nice mall. All kind of stores to visit and shop, nice food court. The air conditioning was SUPER, temps outside close to 100.

“Stay out of this mall”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is not the best place to shop. There is no where to grab a quick bite to eat. Chick-Fil-A closed down, the Subway is poorly run. There is only a Sbarros Pizza, two Chinese places to eat at.However if you want to purchase a phone there are 4 phone places to choose from. Groups of young kids roam the mall and security does not do anything about it. Unless you are 7 years old and lost then they chew out the poor child and try to have them taken away by the Dover PD. Best to go up north to Newark.

“Nothing to rave about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

This is a typical mall with the same old stores. Although there is Macy's and Boscov's.

“"Old Style" one floor mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

As the other reviewers have stated, this is not a glitzy, big time mall. In fact, it is one of the "old school" malls, one story only, small versions of the flagship stores in the larger malls, and lots of little shops that come and go. The Macy's Department Store here is not even close to any other I have been to. The choices are limited, if you want any kind of higher end product you have to go up "north" to get it (i.e. 1,000 thread count sheets, or a top brand food processor). Conversely, the Boscov's Department Store is actually better than the new one in Newark, with more choices for women's clothing. I actually discovered that this Boscov's had a restaurant for the first time, and we did have an inexpensive lunch there while doing some holiday shopping. The Sears has a decent selection of tools. It seemed that there were quite a few empty stores for a while, but it seems with the economy picking up that many of those empty storefronts are now being utilized. Again, as stated before, after 3:00 pm when the local high schools get out the mall is crowded with teens. There is also a large Old Navy (outlet) store, JC Penney, Victoria's Secret, the usual jewelry stores, food shops, but sadly, no more book stores. It's a local "go to" mall, but when we want to do some serious shopping, we head either to PA or up to Christiana.
