Thornton's located right on the Brigate is a destination unto itself. Incredibly attractive structures housed under an overarching colorful glass enclosure and dominated by a large character clock peeling on the hour. Who said old needs to go in favor of modern, sterile malls???? Get with it Westfield's!!! Wish we had a Thornton's back home.
