This mall has always been an area retail center. Nationwide malls are dying and it pretty clear that mall traffic here has decreased, too. But if you'd like to have a nice place to walk around, stop in some nice stores like Macy's, Dillards and...More

I was 10 when Independence Center first opened in 1974. I grew up within walking distance of the now defunct Blue Ridge Mall, previously located about six miles to the east, but I always liked Independence Center because of its openess, size, and unique configuration...More

Great place to shop. Typically not too busy. My kids used to love the play area. It appears they have updated it on a regular basis. Food court is ample with multiple vendors. Great place to walk during the winter cold or the summer hot.

I've been coming here since I was a kid. It's way cooler than it was back then. There is any store you could imagine, restaurants, and a cool kids play area. This place is a nightmare during the Christmas season, so beware of that.
