Let's start at the very beginning. Thank you Segerstrom family, for donating the land to construct this wonderful shopping center. It all began with the anchor stores, Sears and May Co. And, even a two level Woolworth's. At present, there are the exact upscale designer shops that grace Rodeo Drive! And - Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Victoria's Secret, See's, Tiffany, just to... More

Great shops and choice of products. This is a fairly large mall anchored by 4 big department stores. Saks, Nordstrom, Macy and Bloomingdale's. I popped in to pick something up and realized I needed a lot more time. Went back two days later for a better look and a lot more shopping. For planning, have a look at a map... More

I lived near this mall for the last 8 years. A very nice upscale mall with a lot of high end brands. There is also a Sanrio store inside. Don't worry about being hungry while shopping since there are a lot of restaurants here. From Chinese to Italian to French and some others. They have a carousel inside for the... More

Stopped by to see the China Exhibit which was well done. I was impressed that there were over a dozen sponsors. The exhibit was set up in the Ying/ Yang configuration that was quite creative. Several monitors with Nixon speeches and Ping Pong Diplomacy, are displayed on the walls. Terracotta Warriors and the famous Nixon-Choi En Lai handshake that changed... More

I am spoiled by living in Hong Kong, the land of upscale shopping malls. Compared to Hong Kong malls, this one was OK but not as great and wonderful as some reviews may have you believe. I found the signage in the mall poor, making it difficult to locate certain stores. The selection of stores is OK but I found... More
