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

We went into the DeSoto Mall for a professional outfit from one of the major anchor stores. What we got was a very rude awakening. This mall may as well be closed-down. Most of the stores are vacant. The ones that ARE there are not...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.

Dreadful run down half empty mall. PARENTS: I would never allow my teenage child to visit there alone. Too many "shady" people hanging around during the day. I would never set foot in there at night. The restrooms are filthy. I went there for a...More

Used to be great and now they have barely no stores and it's ghetto. It's so disgusting and it stinks SO bad. I just go to Ellenton's outlet mall or the both in Sarasota instead.

I've never been to the theater there, but I've had a bunch of friends say don't go - they've seen drug deals and stuff happening in the theater. :-P
