Worcester Massachusetts Shopping
A walk through the state's worst shopping malls shows which malls in Massachusetts are struggling and which are succeeding. The Cape Cod Mall, in dire need of renovation, has a number of stores, including Target, Target Buy and Home Depot, serving residents who have few shopping options nearby compared to other parts of our state. There are only a few department stores left, but in August the mall announced that Sears would close as part of the chain's nationwide closures. After being empty for more than a year, Sears is to get a Sears car space to replace the home accessories store.
It is owned by Simon Property Group and is the state's second largest shopping center and the third largest in Massachusetts. There are no big department stores, but there are some big areas and there is fierce competition. It is an hour's drive away and has a few stores like Target, Target Buy and Home Depot, all of which have flourished since the Burlington Mall opened.
Anchor stores include Target, Target Buy, Home Depot and Target, with trendy retailers in between. The shopping centre's most popular stores include the Target Store, the DIY store and the Target department store in the centre.
There are six different restaurants offering different prices: Bancroft's Bistro, Biscuit Bar & Grill, Bar Bocce, Pizzeria Cucina, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Burger King and Baskin-Robbins. Prices at the restaurants range from $2,000 to $3,500 per person per meal for a four-course meal, with a minimum of $25 for the main course and $10 for an appetizer plus $5 for dessert. South Shore Plaza has a variety of restaurants, including Buffalo Wild Wings and Buffalo Wings. It is located in the center of the city, just a few blocks from downtown Boston.
The Wareham Crossing shopping mall is adjacent to South Shore Plaza, North Shore Boulevard, South Beach Boulevard and Massachusetts Turnpike.
There are more than 120 shops, including restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as a variety of retail stores and restaurants. There is a full service grocery store, a gas station and a grocery store. Candles are available at the Wareham Crossing shopping center at South Shore Plaza, North Shore Boulevard, South Beach Boulevard and Massachusetts Turnpike. The Point, one of Massachusetts' most popular shopping centers, is available in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It houses a wide range of restaurants and bars as well as cafés, including a café, an ice cream parlour, a coffee bar and an outdoor terrace.
In addition, there are the expansive Pro Shops, which sell a wide selection of Patriot equipment and fan merchandise. Attractions include the New England Patriots Museum and Patriots Hall of Fame and the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show.
Although the food court has an extremely limited selection, there is a variety of food and beverages available to customers visiting Lee's Outlet.
Faneuil Hall, often populated by tourists and pedestrians, is an easy place to find good food and drink, as well as a variety of clothing and accessories. The lack of diversity in the food court is not a cause for complaint, as restaurants and outlets nearby can offer good meals.
This is not Simon's crowning glory, but it is still a popular shopping destination for local residents.
Holyoke Mall in Ingleside had nearly 200 stores, including a variety of food and beverages, as well as retail and restaurant options. It is owned by WS Development and is the state's second largest shopping center and one of the largest in New England. It has more than 100,000 square meters of retail space and is so popular that customers can hardly find other shopping centers in this area and there are new dining options, such as a new restaurant and bar.
In recent years, critics have said a mix of vacancy and an outdated look has made the mall, which opened in 1975, one of the state's most popular shopping centers. The reviews say that the division is confusing, there is a high turnover of shops in the malls, the food court is below average and that many of its shops have high vacancies and that it is often dead. A major criticism is that the courts, which critics say are not good enough, offer far too little. Some critics praised it as slightly less crowded than other New England malls because it tends to be "a little less crowded" and offers many of the same stores, but the reviews also point to its underperformance in barbecuing.
T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods are among the few retailers left, but empty shop windows line the interior of the mall. Simon's Burlington Mall is about to replace the Sears Automotive Center, and Greendale Mall lost Best Buy as an anchor tenant. Large parts of both malls have been empty for years, as anchor retailers like Target, Home Depot, Target and Buy Buy Buy are still there but have closed in recent years; T-J MaxX and home improvement stores like Homegoods, Dollar General and Lowe's are the few retailers left.
