The best malls in America.
Top 6 cities for shopaholics
US residents most often shop online – it’s fast, convenient, easy to return goods back if something doesn’t fit.
For sophisticated shopaholics and tourists, there is nothing better than a holiday atmosphere, sparkling shop windows and exclusive shelves. “Mama America” has compiled a brief overview of the best malls in America and the Top 6 cities for shopaholics.
Shopping centers and malls are not only part of American culture, they are an entire industry.
6. Mall of America in Minneapolis
40 million shoppers visit the mall every year. The size of the pier is so large that it would accommodate 32 Boeing-747 aircraft. 500 brand stores for every taste and budget, SEA LIFE mineral aquarium, Nickelodeon Universe theme park, flight simulators and theaters.
5. San Francisco Mission District
The Mission District is not only one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Francisco, but also the most old school for fashion lovers. Boutiques, cafes, author’s shops, presented along Valencia Street. If you want unusual handmade chocolate, then Dandelion Chocolate Factory is for you. If you’ve been looking for something special for a long time, check out Betabrand, a trendy store that sells crowdsourced designs such as yoga pants and disco sweatshirts.
4. The Galleria in Houston
The largest shopping center in the state of Texas, located in the Uptown Park area. When asked, “How many hours do you spend at The Galleria,” customers respond, “A few days.” Still would! More than 400 shops, places for recreation, cafes, restaurants. Exploring the vibrant and lively mall with designer shops like Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton and department stores including Neiman Marcus and Macy’s leaves no one indifferent. For special connoisseurs – boutiques “David Yurman” with jewelry and designer clothes M. Penner.
3. Magnificent Mile in Chicago
Imagine 13 one mile blocks, 900 shops, hotels, restaurants, shows! It can all be called a paradise for shopaholics and one of the best cities for shopping in the United States. It has everything: high-end boutiques and chain stores, eminent jewelers and emerging designers, food supermarkets and gourmet author’s shops, electronics and gifts, attractions, museums and theaters. In fact, this is a series of shopping centers. Particularly against this background, the Water Tower Place shopping center stands out. It is an eight-story open atrium with more than 100 stores.
2. New York
If you’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada, Sex and the City, or Shopaholic, you’re probably familiar with the Manhattan and Fifth Avenue vibes of global brands. This is a world of bustle and abundance of temptations for buyers from anywhere in the world.
Just look at the elegant Tiffany and Bergdorf Goodman showcases.
Macy’s is a must visit for everyone. No wonder the poster on his building on 34 Street says that this is the largest store in the world. Indeed, 10 floors for the best shopping. There you can find both famous designers like Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as lesser known ones. In addition, discounts reign there all year round, which is especially pleasing.
In the south of Manhattan, not far from the World Trade Center, there is another branded clothing store – “Century 21” – clothes, shoes, accessories. “Alexander McQueen”, “Coach”, “Chloe”, “Dolce & Gabbana”, “Furla”, “Gucci”, “Hugo Boss”, “KENZO”, “Moschino”, “Prada” – hundreds of designers for every taste.
1. Golden Triangle in Los Angeles (Beverly Hills )
Another “centre of the universe” for buyers. Walking along Rodeo Drive, you will find Prada, Gucci, Valentino, Armani, Dior and Cartier. In the heart of Beverly Hills, Two Rodeo Drive, quaint cobblestone paths will take you to Versace, Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Tiffany. East of Rodeo Drive are Beverly and Cañon Drives, local boutiques, unique luxury stores, fantastic Beverly Hills restaurants and outdoor cafes.
On the southern edge of the Golden Triangle, check out Department Store Row with luxury retail titans including Neiman-Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York.
A few tips for successful shopping
- Pay by credit card, not cash. In the US, returning an unsuitable item is easy. If something does not suit you, if you change your mind, you can send the purchase by mail, and the money will be returned to the same card with which you paid for the goods.
- Look out for “Sale” or “Clearance” signs. Discounts are real – no one deliberately raises prices in order to “reduce” them later. Therefore, buying on sale is really profitable.
- Before you go shopping, visit the websites of these malls and shops. Perhaps there will be special promotions/coupons, by printing which you can get an additional discount.
- If you are a tourist, you can easily get a tax refund on a part of the amount spent on purchases of goods at the border (at the airport) by filling out an application and providing receipts. The amount will be automatically returned to the payment card.
Enjoy your shopping and the most positive emotions!
Mall of America
Mall of America (also MOA , MoA , Megamall ) is a large mall in the suburbs of Bloomington, Minnesota, USA. The mall is located southeast of the intersection of Minnesota Highway 494 and Highway 77, north of the Minnesota River, and across the highway from Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. In the United States, it is the second largest mall in terms of retail space, but the largest in terms of total indoor area. open at 1992, the mall received 40 million visitors in 2006.
Triple Five Group , owned by the Canadian Germezian family, wholly owns and operates this facility and owns the West Edmonton Mall in Canada.
The Mall of America (founded by John Scott and Benjamin Clark) has a total area of 4.2 million square feet (390,000 m²), of which 2.5 million square feet (230,000 m²) is retail space. The shopping center is an almost symmetrical building with a rectangular layout. More than 520 stores are located along three levels of walkways on the sides of the rectangle, with a fourth level on the east side. An extension planned to the north of the mall will accommodate up to 900 stores. Four “anchor” department stores are located at the corners. The mall is divided into four different areas, each with its own decorative style.
Although Minnesota often experiences low temperatures in the winter, only the entrances to the mall are heated. Heat enters through skylights over the Nickelodeon Universe. Heat is emitted by lamps, other electrical appliances, as well as employees and guests of the shopping center in an amount sufficient to maintain comfortable conditions. In fact, even in winter, air conditioning systems must operate without interruption during peak hours to ensure a comfortable shopping experience.
Although the common areas are not heated, some shops have heating systems.
Two nearly identical seven-story parking ramps on the east and west sides provide 12,550 parking spaces. Parking spaces to the north and south of the building and a nearby overflow car park bring the total to approximately 20,000.
The mall was designed and built by Triple Five Group , owned by the Hermesian Brothers of Canada, who also own the largest mall in North America, the West Edmonton Mall. Mall of America is located on the site of the former Metropolitan Stadium, where the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Twins played before the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome opened. The teams left the Metropolitan Stadium at 1982 year. A memorial plaque has been erected in the amusement park at the site where the home stadium used to be. One seat from the Metropolitan Stadium was installed at the Mall of America at the exact location (including height) in the stadium in recognition of a 520-foot home run hit by player Harmon Killebrew on June 3, 1967.
In 1986, the Bloomington Port Authority signed an agreement with the Germesiana Organization. The laying of the foundation of the shopping center took place on June 14, 1989 years old Organizations involved in the project included Melvin Simon and Associates, Teachers Insurance and Annuity (aka TIAA), the Triple Five Group, and the office of architect John Gerd.
The shopping center opened its doors to visitors on August 11, 1992. Before opening, the Mall of America was given several nicknames, including “Megamall” (or “Megamess” during construction), “American Sprawl”, “Hugedale” (in reference to the four main “Dale” malls in the twin cities of Rosedale, Southdale, Ridgedale and Brookdale) and simply “The Mall”.
Upon opening, it became the second largest mall by total area and the largest by number of store clerks in the US, however it has never been the largest in the world (West Edmonton Mall, opened in 1991, is larger). The Mall of America is the most visited mall in the world, with over 40 million visitors each year (about eight times the population of the state of Minnesota). The mall employs over 12,000 people.
From 4 September 1995 years old, in the “Moll” for the first time an event was held for live television broadcast. Time-Warner’s World Championship Wrestling has entered the building for the inaugural edition of WCW Monday Nitro, Lex Luger’s WCW debut under the Narcissus make-up. This first broadcast on Turner Network Television, as well as subsequent editions broadcast from the mall, became a highly publicized part of the federation’s rivalry with the World Wrestling Federation.
During its operation as a major entertainment and shopping center, some aspects, for example, have been criticized and scrutinized. In early 2000, the Mardi Gras-themed Fat Tuesdays bar closed its doors due to indecent exposure and alcohol-related offenses for ignoring warnings from the mall and Bloomington police not to repeat the incidents caught on film the year before. After this incident, other problems arose, such as foot traffic in the mall after the bars (all on the fourth floor) closed for the evening. However, the shop windows in the mall were closed. Hooters Restaurant, Cantina #1 Restaurant, and Theaters at Mall of America are the only establishments left on the fourth floor.
In 2003, after a six-year legal battle between Simon Property Group, managing general partner of the property, and the Germezian brothers/Triple Five Group for majority ownership, a federal appellate judge ruled in favor of the Germezians, effectively transferring control and planning authority over the mall back to its original founders. The dispute arose from the 1999 purchase by Simon Properties of a 27.5% stake in Teacher’s Insurance, giving them a majority stake. The Hermesians claimed they were not informed of the deal and sued Simon, citing fiduciary liability.
On November 3, 2006, the Germesians took full control of Mall of America at a cost of US$1 billion. This decision allowed Triple Five to begin work on the so-called “Phase II”.

Phase II expansion
Phase II is MOA’s planned expansion, development of a large vacant piece of land north of the mall that previously housed the Met Center indoor arena, and incorporation of an IKEA store built on part of the site in 2004. Phase II, in its current form, includes a theatre, an ice skating rink, three hotels and a water park similar in design to the West Edmonton Mall. As a result of the expansion, the MOA will not exceed the dimensions of the WEM (which itself is in the process of expansion).
The MOA currently estimates an expansion cost of $1. 9 billion to double the size of the mall and expand it by 5.2 million square feet. The mall developers requested $234 million in state and local grants, but that request was vetoed as part of a larger bill by Gov. Tim Pawlenty during its first appearance in the 2006-07 session.
In the meantime, MOA has signed paperwork to bring in Great Wolf Resorts as a water park operator, as well as Bass Pro Shops and the Kimpton Hotel. The expanding section will connect to the mall on all four levels, while the adjacent IKEA store will be connected via a second level bridge. There will be an NHL-sized rink for public and private skating. Additional parking for 8,000 parking spaces will also be built.
The expansion also includes fine art exhibitions and two upscale department stores. Another plan that was in the works involved fashion, architecture, and restaurants inspired by Europe.
On May 18, 2008, the Minnesota State Legislature passed a bill giving the City of Bloomington the power to raise property and sales taxes to pay for the expansion of the MOA.
Nickelodeon Universe is an indoor theme park in the center of the mall, formerly known as Knott’s Camp Snoopy, Camp Snoopy, and The Park at MOA. The park features roller coasters, as well as many other rides and attractions, and is the largest indoor theme park in the United States. Unlike many indoor amusement parks, Nickelodeon Universe has a lot of natural foliage in and around the park, and its floor has a wide variation in height – the highest ground level in the park is 15 feet above the lowest. This allows for a much more natural atmosphere than is typically found in indoor amusement parks.
The park has two new roller coasters: SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge and Avatar Airbender. It also has a mini golf section called Moose Mountain. It has 18 holes and is designed to create a challenge for players hoping to hit one hole.
Underwater Adventure Aquarium
Guests walk through a 300-foot curved tunnel through 14 feet of water to see over 4,500 marine life including sharks, turtles, rays and more. Underwater Adventure offers special activities such as sleepovers, scuba diving, snorkeling and birthday celebrations.

rail links link the mall with other destinations. Regular public transportation is provided by Metro Transit and other bus lines, and the nearby Mystic Lake Casino offers free shuttles to their establishment. The main bus/train station for regular local service is on the lower level of the east car park. There is the Hiawatha Line, a light rail line that connects the mall to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and from there to downtown Minneapolis (another major shopping destination in the region, especially on weekdays). The mall is not recommended for use as a parking lot, and overnight parking is prohibited to prevent passengers from traveling by train to the airport. Passengers are requested to use the nearby station’s parking lot on 28th Avenue. The mall is the first stop on the Cedar Avenue BRT and the nineteenth stop on the Hiawatha line.
