I live in Wilmington. I've been to the Dover Mall a few times and thought it was pretty nice. Some of the stores are obviously off-brand independent sellers, some of the areas are dusty, and like any mall it has it's kiosks with annoying sellers working on commission.
Compared to the Concord and Christiana Malls in New Castle County, the Dover Mall has a very Southern feel-- which I think is best characterized by the fact that the Boscov's Department store in this mall has a restaurant. The numerous off-brand stores (reminded me of the sham which is called the Tri-State Mall in Claymont, DE but is no where near as run down) and tired look at this mall can be off-putting. The stores in this mall seemed better stocked with a larger selection. The security guards at this mall ride around on Segways which seems ridiculous. The mall is not crowded but has many high school and DSU students roaming around.
Overall, the Dover Mall is a good place to go shopping. However, if you like the glitz, glamour, and size of the Christiana Mall, this is probably not the place for you.
