An outdoor shopping mall with some history but largely a modern, upscale chain store style construction. There are two main historic buildings, one I believe an office building that at the time it was built was the tallest building in the area (outside of downtown Philadelphia, of course). Macy’s also occupies an historic department store location, formerly a Strawbridge and Clothier. I’ve heard many complaints regarding the fact it is not as large, etc as a new building, but in my mind, the charm of the old building is the only reason I would go to Macy’s anyway. They’ve redone the square area around these main buildings and store; there are tables, a fountain, etc, which makes it a nice place to rest. Ultimately, though, the whole effect seems to strive to make you feel you are in the heart of town’s shopping district, when in fact it is really just a mall. Come to think of it, downtown Ardmore is right on the other the other side of the train tracks, a block away...may I suggest checking out an actual town shopping district?
