If it’s cold or rainy outside an indoor shopping mall can be a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. The controlled atmosphere is a joy for taking a stroll on a hot and humid day too. At Prairieside Suites Luxury bed and breakfast our guests often tell us what “GREAT” shopping we have in Grand Rapids, MI. We have guests who stay with us and shop for birthdays and Holidays. This made me think that I really do need to share this information with all of you because “Oh-boy-A”… do we have great shopping Malls!
First and foremost we have Rivertown Crossings premier shopping mall which is the largest regional mall in Michigan and located only 3 minutes away from our door! Anchored by Dick’s Sporting Goods which has a fun climbing wall, Kohl’s, JC Penney, Sears, Macy’s, Old Navy and Younkers, RiverTown also has Cinemark a 20 screen movie theater located by a wonderful food court. When I’m there I love to park by the Barnes & Noble’s book store. When I go in the coffee smells so good and I can’t resist looking at their beautiful books!
Traveling east along the 28th Street corridor you’ll find:
1. Rogers Plaza Town Center a neighborhood shopping center featuring GNC, MC Sports, Office Max, Old Country Buffet and more.
2. Woodland Mall which features Macy’s, JCPenney, and Sears as its anchor stores and also offers smaller specialty shops like Eddie Bauer, Ann Taylor, Foot Locker, American Eagle Outfitters, and Gap. If you need a rest after all that shopping, the Cinemark movie theater right in front of Woodland mall is a half price movies house and they offer real butter on their popcorn!
3. Centerpointe Mall, this mall features Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Christopher & Banks, Steve & Barry’s University Sportswear and DSW Shoes.
4. Now taking 28th Street West, turn right to go North on Breton Ave and after you cross Burton street you’ll see Breton Village Mall on the right or East corner]. This mall has more than 25 boutiques, specialty shops, and restaurants, featuring stores such as Leigh’s, Talbots, Pooh’s Corner and Naked Plates.
Around each of these malls you will find lots of restaurants and many smaller outdoor strip malls with great destination stores. Happy shopping on your next romantic get away!
Come experience my world.
