When I first moved to Bellingham 7 years ago Bellis Fair was a busy mall with no vacancies. Now there are many empty stores, and Macy's is very run down - almost looks like a Ross. There are really no stores at Bellis Fair left...More

This mall is a regular mall. It's in the city and is one of the closest malls in Vancouver, Canada. They have been upgrading throughout the times I've been going there. I hope they keep upgrading.

It used to be a vibrant mall with so many stores to shop in, but now it is almost a ghost mall. I usually just stop off at Macy's, now and check out their sales. There are more stores closed, and fewer cars in the...More

Revisited Bellis fair after 20 years. Pretty depressing, so many shops have closed up. Not a lot of shoppers buying anything. Very little foot traffic, most people just window shopping and this was on a weekend. I was disappointed to see the buffet restaurant was...More

Used to be a good place to visit. There is nothing to attract shoppers any longer. Place seems dead. Many stores closed, and a number of those spaces have been vacant for a very long time. I'm not sure how this mall will survive unless...More

Bellingham's large mall with relatively good access from I-5 and lots of parking usually available, Features both large retailers (e.g. Macy's, Target, JCPenny) - and smaller shops totalling approximately 100 retailers & restaurants/food mall in all - something for everyone.

looking for any info on outlet malls between Canadian border and Everett. Also, other than Bellis Fair and Ross...where else should a bunch of us cross border shopaholics go in and around Bellingham? We are staying 2 nights in bellingham and heading to Everett Mall. Also interested in discount grocery stores, went to one in Olympia that had great deals.

you will like grocery outlet on Ellis in Bellingham. Sort of like a dollar store for food. Good deals on canned and frozen foods. There are outlets in Blaine but not very exciting. Other than Premium outlets which was mentioned on other posts you made there are outlet store in Burlington which are okay.

Looking at this hotel for a one night stay to do some shopping. How close is this hotel to Bellis Fair, Outlet Mall, Costco etc.... Are you walking distance to any decent restaurants etc. Any other recommended hotels?

its ok not much around it. There is a Greek Restarant close to it. Bellis Fair would just be an exit or two south of there. I stayed at the Silver Reef Casino in Fernadale which is a few miles farther but very nice rooms and about $100 a nite on Orbitz. It has great facilities and I posted a review. Best Western Lakeway would be closer to mall but nothing is that far.
