It's rapidly failing, sadly. It once had a bookstore, record shop, food court, movie theater, Sears, electronics, two magnet stores. Now that the other end of town is sporting two huge malls, side by side, I don't see much there, except Hannaford's, which is it's...More

This is not really a shopping mall anymore. It used to have some good stores, but one by one they've all gone. Now it just has JC Penney, a dance studio and a maybe a small jewelry store. It's sad because there are a lot...More

The only things worth going there for is Subway and Papa Gino's. Walking Mall for exercise is great! Kmart, I could leave it. Can't enter Dollar Tree from the inside a negative.

A great little mall!!! What they lack in the big money, big name stores, they make up for in heart. There are all kinds of community events that happen at the mall each year!! Thankful for a mall with the community in mind!!!

Except for KMart and JC Penney,s this mall barely has anything to offer. The theatre is not open everyday. However, Papa Gino's pizza is a local favorite and has great subs and pizza.

For a "mall" No! A shopping area, Yes! Kmart, Papa Gino's, JC Penney, Subway & the dollar tree resides here, but not much more! It definitely screams out that it's failing.
