There's nothing here. I wouldn't really consider this a "mall". With eight shops open, they have a dollar store, GNC, optical store, Lotto store, Payless, a clothing spot and a surprisingly excellent coffee joint and pizzeria. There's also a food court in the back but...More

What Mall? It's an empty shell with zombie like characters hanging in and around it. I was staying down the street and seen a map that a mall was within walking distance. After walking around and not seeing any type of signage to signal a...More

Very very few stores, but of the ones that are there some are nice. Food court is average at best. Overall I would say if you need a quick pair of shoes or men's or women's fashion and you are downtown give it a try....More

Typifies business in NYS: crushed, depressed, fleeting and soon to be gone. Sad tragic reflection of a destroyed and forgotten "mall". Unbelievable it is still open. An embarrassment

Went here as it was closer to where staying. Nothing here few shops. As in10 or so. 90 percent of shops vacated. Horrible place.

No national stores besides the Footlocker and Payless Shoes. Only a few junk stores. On the second level, the only thing there is a sad little food court and a lot of homeless people walking in and out of the building.

Only place worth going to was the Cafe on the first floor. It's a mostly vacant building and it's only clothing store for men (Labels) had out dated junk. Coming in and out of this place I had to rush quick, full of wack jobs...More

I was downtown for jury duty, and on lunch I went to the mall. I haven't been there for a few years, but where did it go? There is nothing but a food court. I saw another business close it's door for business on the...More

The reviews are right about this mall, it's NOT your typical suburban mall with the Gap and Pottery Barn. However, this is the place where you can go to pick up your Buffalo related souvenirs and gifts. The shop is located on the Main Street...More

The only reason this "mall" is still operating is the food court is always packed from people who work downtown and I believe WNY's internet backbone passes through it, thus it allegedly is a home to server farms (which I have just heard of, never...More
