    This is a middle of the road mall and unlike many, it seems to be thriving. Sears and Macy’ Are still operating with Boskov’s as the third anchor. All the smaller spaces seem to be occupied, too. And adjacent to the mall is a Barnes & Noble and a Best Buy. Manageable size, unlike the King of Prussia.

    Hello, I am a city resident, born in this city also. During WW2 my father worked at the Dravo's Ship Yard. I remember as a young man going down to this waterfront during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. It was mostly vacant buildings and trash dumping throughout, plus it also had a bad odor.
    In the late ;80-s there were some people talking about putting a baseball stadium down here. And I though, what the hell are they doing - this place is TRASHED. Maybe one building where people were employed and working. Delmarva Power had/has various spots here for their equipment etc.
    Well I watched mostly from the sidelines and saw z very super nice change to the entire area, And I just found it truly hard to believe, still do to this date. But what a Super Nice Improvement and I was totally wrong in my thinking.
    I intend to write and send you some pointers and things that I've observed down at the Waterfront soon.
    Sincerely,
    Kevin P. Quinn

    This place was wonderful. It was quiet and its not too small but just enough space for the display of abstract art. My brother and I went and we enjoyed ourselves. The staff were friendly and the entire place was very clean. Very good display of art with a vastness of abstract ideas and creativity.

    Went there looking for shopping. The only things open were a fitness place, a realtor, and a Boy Scout shop. Very disappointed.

    We usually end up at Govatos Chocolates once a year, usually around the Christmas holiday season. They have 2 locations: Market Street in Wilmington and this location in the Talleyville Shopping Center out on 202. I always go to the Talleyville location on 202 out of convenience, although the Market Street location is where everything is made.

    Govatos offers a nice selection of handmade chocolates including creams, nuts, fruits, truffles and more. They have a really nice sized sugar-free selection, which make nice gifts for diabetic friends and family. You can choose a pre-made assorted box or make up your own assortment on the spot. I usually make my own box up. The staff is always willing to put together whatever you want! I usually have them top the box off with some sugar free chocolate covered pretzels too. They gift wrap the chocolates for FREE too! There are usually a few gift wrap selections to choose from.

    Govatos also has bags of gummy candy, candy corns (reindeer corn at Christmas), caramels, solid shaped chocolates, marzipan, chocolate covered pretzel rods and MORE in addition to the individual chocolate pieces.

    Overall, we have had great experiences with Govatos. The staff is always friendly. They really seem to care about their customers and their experience shopping in the store. This past visit, the lady even chatted with our kids and gave them each a little treat. I have always left happy. Our family & friends always give their sugar-free chocolates rave reviews, which makes me confident in giving it as a gift year after year. I personally like their chocolate covered pretzel rods and coconut clusters. Kids liked the white chocolate covered pretzels and foil wrapped chocolate Santas too. Prices aren't cheap for the assorted chocolates. I think it was around $16.50 for a 1/2 pound box that was slightly over in weight. BUT we don't mind paying for good quality chocolates.

    Bottom Line: I would recommend for a special treat every now and then. I would also recommend as a place to get a nice holiday gift IF you are looking for boxed chocolates.

    Stopped in here to get some chocolates for my family as a gift for Father's Day. They had a nice selection of sugar free chocolates in addition to themed chocolates, such as golf, football, etc. We purchased a mixed selection of sugar free chocolates and a golf club chocolate as well. We also purchased some chocolate covered pretzel rods to enjoy on the go.

    Overall, we had a good experience with Candy for All Occasions. Staff was friendly and helpful. Chocolates were good. Prices were fair. They have a HUGE selection of candies and chocolates. I would recommend.
