Which malls in Iowa do you love the best for shopping?
October 2011 Babies! & Join us in theMom Help: Birth - 3yrs group!
Coral Ridge, because its close. I also like Jordan Creek if I am in the Des Moines area.
I hate malls lol so I avoid them if at all possible!
Jordan Creek and the one in Coralville are the only two you can catch me in lol
I prefer Merle Hay because they have the basic stores that I go to like VS and Old Navy, and Burlington Coat Factory and Hobby Lobby right next door. It's also closer.
I love Jordan Creek, but I don't get there often enough! I usually hit malls up in Rochester or the Twin Cities.
Oh, Jordan Creek is my favorite by far. I'm closer to Valley West and Merle Hay, but Merle Hay seems to be dying and Valley West doesn't have as good a restaurants. I just wish my budget was such that I could afford some of the things I find at Jordan Creek.
Between Target/Kohls/Staples (and Hobby Lobby close by too) I guess I would have to say Merle Hay Mall...not to mention they have Old Chicago and Panda Express! It's also been my favorite mall for the last 7 years based on the playare because I can sit in one spot and see pretty much everywhere and everything, unlike the VW & JC playareas. It's also the closest mall to our house too. I rarely need to go to Jordan Creek, but I do hit the outside areas often because of Archivers. Same with Valley West, but I do like that one because they have some of the best food options (Jimmy Johns, Noodles & Co, Chipotle...) Yes, I tend to want to eat more than I shop when I'm out!!!
