What's Your Favorite Mall? Brookfield, Mayfair, Southridge or Bayshore?
Taking into consideration proximity, type of stores and recreation, Patch wants to know which mall you like best.
Southeastern Wisconsin has it fair share of quality shopping malls, all within a 15 to 35 minute drive.
Whether it's proximity, number of stores, types of stores or recreation, everyone has a go-to favorite mall. What's yours?
Southridge recently underwent a huge renovation that has brought a number of new stores and encouraged other stores to renovate as well. Southridge is one of the main retail shopping destinations in the south side of Milwaukee County. It's one of the few malls that has five anchors: Boston Store, Macy's, Kohls, Sears and JCPenney.
Mayfair has over 180 stores and with good variety. It has stores for people of all ages and income brackets. Not only does this mall have a rather large Boston Store and Macy's but the first Nordstrom in Wisconsin will be opening in Mayfair in 2015. One cannot forget the AMC movie theatre within the mall.
Brookfield Square Mall
This one-story upscale mall attracts residents from Waukesha County and Milwaukee County. Brookfield Square underwent a massive renovation in 2004 that brought a number of stores and restaurants into the area. It's the only mall to have a Northface Store in the area. It also has the largest Boston Store with the largest inventory.
Bayshore Town Center Mall
Bayshore Mall is a great shopping destination for those warm months when you want to be outdoors. It's considered to be a great dating place due to its restaurants and the iPic. In the last few years Bayshore has been remodeled and has brought in a number of upscale stores to the joy of many North Shore residents.
Patch asked people on Facebook what was their favorite mall. Here's what they had to say:
Tammy Sheahan Bayshore because you get fresh air while shopping. So pretty at the holidays!
Sinead Raleigh Brookfield Square of course where you don't pay a county tax like the other 2.
Jill Block I like Brookfield square it's one level and it's close to home. They also have Balistics coffee which I love.
Katie Medrow Prefer the stores at Mayfair but it is becoming overrun with high schoolers so Brookfield is my place to go if I need to.
Karen Hudachek McNeely Mayfair has the best stores... and it will just get better when Nordstroms comes.
Jennifer Downey York Mayfair, followed by Bayshore. HATE Southridge. That mall will not survive even with all of the udpates.
Adine Orlowski Mikolajczak The new outdoor Bayshore is too expensive and the shops are too boring. Brookfield is more kid friendly and indoors.
Theresa Malloy I really like Southridge since Macy's opened. They are getting more higher end stores and getting rid of the trashier ones.
