The mall is generally not in the best shape, so is the audiencesometimes. Sadly this nicely located mall is suffering from the lack of customers and so shops are going out etc.. It´s a vicious circle.

This was a good mall to visit but, like many other Malls it has lost some major stores and it's cinema. There is the promise of new stores but, little evidence of any progress being made. This is a shame because there is little competition...More

Macy's should close, Sears is deserted, this mall is ready for a zombie movie. No help in Macy's, Sears people have worse prices than internet. Hard to drive to no reason to go.

It makes me sad to pen this review. I have visited this Mall every year for the past 7 years...and every year I find more store space for rent and a general atmosphere of defeat. This year it felt like the place was on life...More

We went into the DeSoto Mall for a professional outfit from one of the major anchor stores. What we got was a very rude awakening. This mall may as well be closed-down. Most of the stores are vacant. The ones that ARE there are not...More
