“Apple Blossom Mall..a mall that will take ya back to 1982 !!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

Apple Blossom is a "so-so" mall, well "fair" is a better word for it, Not as dead as Martinsburg Mall and Staunton ( VA ) Mall. More stores than Harrisonburg's Valley Mall but its still lags behind. Hagerstown and NoVA.

*The only Belk & Sears in the region. ( Sears in nearby Martinsburg is closed )
*a few decent food places though the food court is somewhat smallish
*easy to find with lots of parking
*movie theatres attached to the mall ( though I admit they have seen better days ).

*Mall hasn't been updated at all since their opening in September 1982. Walking the mall will give you the impression that Sean Penn will pop out of one of the stores and say "Hey Bud..Let's Party !!..or expect to see "E T" or Porkys" at the local theatre. Yeah AB Mall really is a 1982 time warp.

*Outdated signs and ad such as the one ad I saw inside the mall recently for ABC-TV Winchester's weathergal Lauryn Rickets. Lauryn some time ago had left Winchester ( and TV 3 ) for FOX Washington. Why is her ad still up?

*many of the employees of the stores including JC Penney seemed to be very bored.

*the so-called arcade leaves a LOT to be desired such as having more broken games than working ones.

Over the years Simon the owner of Apple Blosom Mall had plans on updating this mall such as adding better theatres and better stores such as Macys ( Hechts before that ) had expressed interest in this mall but ONLY if Apple Blossom Mall is updated. Alas..between the economy and the politics of Winchester who would rather keep this mall as a 1982 time warp for :fear" that any updating will take away from that "small town image"....doubful it will ever happen.

“Can't keep stores, hit nova for "nice" places.”
Reviewed 6 June 2011

As a local to this area I have had plenty of experience with this mall. High rental prices, not quite big enough walkways and stores, and a general lack of interest have made this mall a hodgepodge of stores with high turn-over. While not horrible, it is not a quality shopping destination. Also, avoid the attached carmine cinema at all costs. Go to the Alamo drafthouse for a fun movie watching experience, just be sure to get there early.
