This was a good mall to visit but, like many other Malls it has lost some major stores and it's cinema. There is the promise of new stores but, little evidence of any progress being made. This is a shame because there is little competition...More

Having had holidays in this area before we thought we would visit the De Soto Square Mall as it was raining and we were looking to fill some time before dinner. It was the most depressing mall I’ve ever been to. There were buckets scattered...More

There is a new business that has opened in the former Macy's area that is like a cross between an Antique Mall and Collectibles outlet. It's called "Your Treasure House". It houses a number of dealers, some of whom are present at their stations, and...More

This mall is near a very dangerous area and is not safe even during the day. Roving bands of predators. You are warned.

This mall hasn't got any better, the main reason to visit her is the Champs shop as it is the largest in the area and has the most choice because of there head office up the road.

Macy's should close, Sears is deserted, this mall is ready for a zombie movie. No help in Macy's, Sears people have worse prices than internet. Hard to drive to no reason to go.

It makes me sad to pen this review. I have visited this Mall every year for the past 7 years...and every year I find more store space for rent and a general atmosphere of defeat. This year it felt like the place was on life...More

Difficult lot of empty shops and looked like on reduced power in places. Having said that still got JC Penny and Aunty Anne's. So if passing you could get your phone open or hair extensions. Don't go out of your way.
