We used to have the Blue Hen Mall, while nothing compared to the "big" malls, they were big for Dover back in the 80's as the only thing Kent & Sussex had at that point was strip malls or solo stores. The Dover Mall came in & pushed the BH outta business by stealing the bigbox stores, but now the Dover Mall is starting to show her age.
She is small compared to todays MegaMalls like Christiana & even some strip malls are becoming bigger than Dover.
Its still a good place to go, and with the overturn of stores then maybe something new will open by the time you get there. It was being floated around for many years (since early 2000s I think) that she was going to expand out behind the mall, off to the side of Dover Downs & new Rt 1, but since they just changed ownership hands again I doubt it will happen.
I'll still go for my fix of Sarku teriyaki chicken with fried rice & double meat, yeah its chain food but its my occasional treat.

This is the only mall in Dover, De. The only one, and its the city of Delaware... This is pretty much the only thing to do on the weekends if you are a kid or teenager. Other than going to the mall, you can bowl, skate, go to a restaurant, or shop somewhere else. There is a small selection to do in Dover, DE otherall. This mall is really poor. Some big stores include Macys, Boscovs, Jcpennys, and Sears. Some other stores are VS, Rue21, Body Central, Aeropostale, and PacSun. The mall is now putting in a Dicks Sporting Goods, and we will be getting our FYE back soon. The movie theater is okay, probably more overpriced then most. On fridays and Saturdays theres a curfew for kids under 17 not allowing them to watch movies with someone 21 or over after 6pm?.. There is few selection of food here. They took at all the good food such as Boardwalk fries (which opened up their own store, which failed and their closing), also they took out McDonalds, and Chicfila. Some food that you can get is Subway, Pizza, Burgers, Chinese, Salad, BocBocChicken, and Japenese food.

Otherall Its pretty average nothing special. If you are visting Delaware and want to take advantage of our no tax shopping, then make a trip to Christiana Mall (around 40 minutes from Dover, or more).

The only mall in Dover, DE. On Friday night all the kids were hanging out. Have been there to the movies. The area by the movies has minimal parking so you end up walking. Check on prices. I think it might be a dollar or two more than other movie theaters. The food court area has gotten a lot smaller. There is no longer a Mc Donald's but there is a chic fil a. Boscov's Penny's Sears and Macy's are the big stores.

I like the selections of clothes and all of the products you can get in one store. The customer service was fantastic.
