My Visit to the Mall
Family outings, entertainment and leisure time, is gradually changing as a result of the construction malls all over the country. Such shopping malls and centers are progressively attempting to achieve more than goods distribution. Malls are becoming increasingly creative. They are using what we may consider a traditional retail space to create playhouses, trampoline places, gymnastic studios, supermarkets, entertainment places, restaurants, banks among other facilities. All these amenities are aimed at generating revenue. They hope to make individuals who visit the malls for different reasons to at least make purchases at the usual retail stores. Many people prefer malls as they offer convenience as a one-stop shop where you can access different facilities mainly, food, shopping, and entertainment. We take a look at an experience inside one of America’s most famous malls as a representation of the features and experiences that malls currently offer to their customers.
The Mall of America which is located in Minnesota in the United States is quite a popular place to visit. The mall has more than 500 stores and slightly more than 50 restaurants. My first visit to the mall was quite exciting from the beginning since there is no fee for parking and the place is easily accessible because of its convenient location. Moving around the various food courts to see what they offer was exciting, and it is impossible to decide what to eat since there are so many varieties to choose from. The eateries inside the mall catered to just about all tastes, ranging from the fast-food variety experiences to high-class and grand sit-down establishments. It is, without doubt, a place one should visit. I was particularly interested in the Cake Boss shop because I love the show and I wanted a taste of some cake. The mall is trendy therefore many events are held there occasionally. On the day of my visit, there was a wedding taking place at the chapel of love which is one the mall’s facilities. This chapel has apparently hosted more than 5,500 couples’ marriages from what I gathered.
Parents who visit with their children would particularly enjoy this place a lot since there are a lot of activities for kids like the aquarium, amusement park with different rides and roller coasters inside and various stores such as the LEGO store where I saw children playing in their play areas. Teenagers also have plenty to engage them at this mall including zip lines, crazy spinning machines, multiplex cinema theatre, comedy club and many others. The mall is also preferred because they do not tax their product which gives you a good deal in the various shops. Due to the size of the mall, there are kiosks that are quite handy as they show you how to get to whichever shop you might be trying to locate and how long it will take to get there from where you are. Just like any other mall, different stores located in one premises make it an ideal location for the family since each member has different interests and all these interests mean different shopping experiences and shops. The mall of America proved to be a worthwhile experience. Even though I had not gone there to shop, I ended up doing some impulse buying just from seeing all my ideal stores as well as their prices which I consider reasonable. Generally, the mall has all you would need, making it a perfect location for shopping, food, and entertainment.
Because of its large size, we were not able to finish our tour of the entire mall as it would take more than visit for one to explore all their facilities. Generally, this mall gives a representation of the feel in today’s malls whereby you get everything you require at one particular place as opposed to moving from one location to another to shop or engage in other activities. The mall visit was an awesome experience, and I would recommend it to anyone regardless of your reason for going there since there is something for everyone.
