Old-fashioned but reliable and close to Hwy 41

The mall has a 1980s feel but the anchors (currently!) are still in place and it has a good mix of national chains and local stores plus a movie theater.

There are lots of stores such as Coach, Polo Ralph Lauren, Bass, Nike, Gap, Hurley, Nine West and much more. It's a huge outlet and you can take about 4hrs to see it. It also has a food court. Pros: There is a huge variety of stores to see. Cons: Some stores are pricey ($$-$$$) to be in the outlet.

This mall is located in the southern part of Sarasota. It is anchored by a Costco, Sears, J.C. Penny, and a multi-screen AMC Cinema. All the stores are on one level which requires a fairly long walk from end to end. One store that I particularly enjoyed was the All Sports Custom Framing. It is a rather unique store that... More

Stopped in here while visiting the area over the holidays. Macy's was well laid out with good after Christmas bargains. Their women's professional clothes had a good selection and an online coupon for 20% off helped with the savings. Friendly staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about their inventory. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

This mall loses tenants and then gains new ones. The addition of Costco really helped as an anchor. The Food Court is ok but a little too weighted in the 'Asian' food area. WIth that said the Japanese Grill is quite good. The other main anchors are pretty good with JC Penny and Sears. The addition of the H&M was... More

If you are in Sarasota you have to visit this mall as if you have teenagers it is the one in the area with Hollister and Aeropostale. Clean, airconditioned plenty of choice at the food court.

Built in 1977, it covers 850,000 square feet and features 144 stores on one floor, including its four anchor stores--Costco, Macy's, JC Penney and Sears. Located south of... More
