University Mall is pretty empty with just a few stores and restaurants. Southern Season and the movie theatre are mainly the only reason to come, but there is a Chick-fil-A, shoe store, and a few small shops.

The mall is relaxing and the best thing is Chic-Fi-la and Maple View Farm Ice Cream. Burlington Shoes is OK but the rest of the mall is full of high price - private shops.

This is a relatively small mall shopping center. However the last review is misleading it is not a indoor strip mall. The mall has been renovated and is anchored by Southern Season with a theater complex being build at the other end. Some nice shops,...More

I wouldn't really consider this a mall. Definitely more like an indoor strip mall. No major department stores. We were in and out in five minutes. Not for serious shoppers.

What fun I had spending money here! Southern Seasons was a blast sampling all the various products with a lovely staff. But then, what a pleasant surprise all the other shops were fun and classy. Metropolis had some of the most unique fashions I have...More
