I prefer to go to Southridge mall. Its the closet to me. Next favorite is Valley West. Third is Jordan Creek.

For the atmosphere and food I like Jordan Creek the best but I rarely ever buy anything at a mall. I prefer Target, Kohl's and places like that for actual shopping.

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!!!
