“Great Mall”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We came to Dallas on a shopping trip. Our first stop was Northpark Center and I was so pleased. The mall itself is painfully 1970s and desperate for a major modern renovation, but the individual stores themselves are all modern and fantastic. I found fantastic sales (after Christmas deals) in Cole Haan, Ferragamo, Nordstrom, Barneys, Ted Baker, Neiman Marcus, Gucci, and more. What I really liked is that the mall is more than just the highest end European designers. They have that, but they also have quality high street stores like a large Banana Republic, Gap, Seven Jeans, Abercrombie, and much more. There is a good mix of stores for both men and women. The mall is HUGE. I spent four hours there and barely made it through the first floor alone.

In the end, I think this is a can't-miss mall if you feel like doing some upscale shopping while in Dallas. Have fun!

“Excellent Mall even for us "non-shoppers"”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I would have to say that I usually do not like the mall experience. But, this mall seems to have something for everyone. It also has the rarest of gems for kids, a Disney Store! Disney stores were at one time in every mall across America but they have been really cut back to much fewer and far in-between. This mall is also great to walk because it just takes you in a complete square with no sides to get lost in or that feeling of, “I think I was just here but I need to get there.” Just keep walking and you will find your way.

I’m not really into art but this place has some unique items that even I enjoyed looking at. Words do not do some of them justice but you will see if you take the full trip around so say hello to the “giants” for me. You’ll see! In fact you will get a chance to see a large variety of art. We were here at Christmas on this trip and it was decorated very beautifully for the season.

They have many places to eat including an Italian restaurant but we always frequent PF Chang’s when we visit. There is nothing like walking off some great Japanese food in a comfortable secure. The stores are all pretty standard mall department stores other than Disney but the layout makes shopping a breeze.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Northpark is a lovely shopping Mall. Easy to get to, plenty of parking, very spacious and clean, well laid out and loads of shops. I visited with no specific purpose, however left with an armful of bags! Everyone was so friendly, it was a pleasure to go into each store.
There are lots of high end shops, such as Tiffany, Gucci, LV etc, however there are also plenty of normal stores for everyday clothes.
You could easily go here for your Christmas shopping and get presents for everyone, there is so much variety! After 3 hours, I had only managed to go round the ground floor....i'll definitely be back

“Superlative Shopping Destination”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have literally been shopping in some of the best places in the world, and I am very fortunate to have this gem in my backyard. Home to Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Mont Blanc, Nordstrom, Burberry, Bulgari, David Yurman, the list goes on and on. The shopping mall itself is a destination, it is an interesting combination of a museum look with a shopping mall. The Nasher family that constructed the mall are well known in the Dallas area for their love of art; sculpture in particular. If you want a truly amazing experience, valet your car near the Tiffany & Co entrance on the southwest side of the mall. Enter the mall between Neiman Marcus and Tiffany. Immediately past Tiffancy to your right will be a charming time honored delight. Turtles and ducks in an indoor pond. Enter Neiman Marcus and make your way up the escaltor to the third floor. The Neiman Marcus Cafe is on this floor at the rear. Have lunch here (between $20 & $30 per person.) I especially like the Mandarin Souffle! Later, wander the mall, see all of the stores and the sculptures. The mall has a very nice Theater to see the latest movie as well.
