Going to the mall

United States

How often do you go to the mall?Do you like going to the mall?How big is your local mall?When is the last time you have been to your local mall?Who all do you go to the mall with?What major stores do you have in your local mall?When you go to the mall do you go to just walk around,or do you go to get something in particular?How long do you normally spend at the mall?Whats the longest you have spent at the mall at one time?How many times a week do you go to the mall?How many times a month do you go to the mall?How many times a year do you go to the mall?I like going to the mall,even though the closest thing to a mall we have around here is Wal Mart,so I have to drive twenty minutes to get to the mall.The mall I go to is pretty big because it has two floors,and a whole lot of good stores,I usually go to the mall with my fiance,but sometimes we go to the mall with my brothers,or every once in a while with my parents,especially if my mom needs washing powder because she gets it from Sears and it is to heavy for her to carry.In the mall I go to,the major stores are Sears,Macy's,Dillards,and JcPenny's,and all four are awesome stores.Sometimes me and my fiance will go to just waste time and walk around,especially if we go with my brothers,but mostly we only go that far if we need to get something.Sometimes we will spend hours at the mall,but mostly we get what we need to get and get out of there,and the most recent time we went to the mall,we went because I needed a new battery for my watch,and as soon as we got the battery we left.The longest time I have ever spent at the mall would probabily be all day,cause my brothers and I used to go the mall all the time,to just get away from the house,but since I met my fiance I dont feel the need to do that anymore.Usually me and my fiance will go the mall at the most once a week,if even that,or maybe once a month,but we try to go atleast twice a year, maybe more.

Hi hellcowboy, I will try to answer all your questions.LOL, My husband and I have this regular routine every month, I love big malls and even if he hate it, he will just accompany me. I make it a point to bring something at home every time we are in the mall, so we will look for items on sale and start choosing the best item and cheapest one. The longest time we can spend is only 2 hours! The mall where we love to visit is like 5 minutes drive from the house!I always look forward for that schedule since that is the time only I can roam around and exercise longer, walking all over the mall!

i live near to a mall called SM (Shoe Mart) City Batangas. we have many SM malls in the Philippines, i think they like to build one in every province and city. i go to the mall like every weekend. i go there to buy groceries most of the time. i go there to buy other stuff like shirts and pants not so often, like once in three months. my girlfriend though go to the mall and buy stuff like shoes and blouse almost once a month. of course, i accompany her. i don't like spending too many hours in the mall. i easily get tired roaming and walking around. it gives me pain in my back. what i want to do in the mall is watch movies and eat in fast food chains or restos. a good day to you and your fiance!

Twice a year??? maybe twice a month is what you mean? I love going to mall. usually I went to visit my fav book store. I do love to read. I live in a capital city so we had more than a dozens mall here with all kind of shape. Small ones and very big ones. I had at one time or two spend my entire day in a mall. usually it happen when I had 2-3 movies I wanted to watch and I just spend my time watching those movies in a day. Specially Monday cause the cinema had a special price in Monday. So you could imagine how hectic it was. Sometimes I only got 5 minutes between the movies and I had to went to the bathroom and rush out to buy chips and coke.

Thats a big mouthfull. But I can answer it real quick. I go to the mall as little as I can cause I hate the mall so I try to go there as little as posible. Malls are so impersonal and boring. would much rather walk down the street and not see the smame ppl 100 times in half an hour. Though I must admit it is a good place to get last minute shoping done.

Yeah I know that is a big mouthfull and I am glad to decided to respond,I can understand you hating the mall,and I agree they can be very impersonal and very boring,and I would rather walk down my street too,that and my street is alot safer then the mall is,because you never know whats gonna happen at the mall,and yeah I know its very normal to see the same people,cause it seems like the same people are always at the mall,and yeah it is a good place to do last minute shopping, especially for a holiday like Christmas.

I hate shopping so go as little as I can! I live in a small town and there is a smallish independent supermarket plus some small shops, so I can get most of my day-to-day stuff there. Once a week I drive about 10 miles to a big supermarket to stock up, and then occasionally (maybe once every two months?) I have to go further afield to get other things like clothes, and I hate it! The shopping centres (malls) are always full of people walking in my way and i just get hot and sweaty and fed up!

Not everyone likes shopping,and thats cool that you have a small independent supermarket and other small shops to buy your day to day stuff from,and thats also cool that once a week you drive 10 miles to to stock, but it sucks that once every two monthes you have to drive farther to get clothes,and yeah I know most of the time the malls are full of people and it can get very frustrating.

I live near a mall, only 15 minutes away. The first time it opened, me and my friends are always there to relax and see what other establishments they have there. They have groceries, department stores, stalls and boutiques. It also has amusement parks, like video games and other recreational facilities.. But I haven't been there lately, since I am busy and don't really like being in crowded places..

That is cool that your mall is only 15 minutes away, and I can understand how when a mall first opens it can be really interesting,and it is often a good place to relax,thats awesome that it has amusement parks,with stuff like video games,cause everyone loves video games ,and I cant understand not liking crowded places,cause I myself also cant stand crowds or crowded places.

Well, hmm... I wonder how often I go to the mall, lol. Everytime with you baby, cuz I don't like going to the mall with friends. Do I like going to the mall? I think I answered that just by saying only with you. The most recent time is when we got a battery for your watch. The most recent times it's either been with your mom or your brothers, and the major stores.. are well do I need to tell you? I usually go to get something in particular, and usuall don't spend to much time there. The longest time that i've been to the mall is um, not really sure. We don't go on a weekly basis, NOPE... Monthly neither, atleast a few times a year.. Me No likey mall though

I found this topic to be somewhat amusing and I just had to respond. My aunt owns a donut/bakery shop in our local mall and I work there part-time, so I'm there at least three times a week. Whenever I'm not working, I don't really like going to our mall because there isn't much there that interest me. The mall isn't that big (maybe around 40 stores) and a majority of them are clothing stores. Most of the stuff in there are pretty pricey so I don't really shop there. I think the only good thing is that I get a mall discount at most of the stores.

I actually enjoy working there a lot. It's always good to meet and talk to all of the different people that come by. I think the best thing, though, is the talent show that is held every month there. Besides being free entertainment, some of the kids that perform during the show are really good. It's one of the thing I look forward to every month.
• United States

Thats cool that you like working there,and It is always interesting to meet different people.Talent shows are always awesome,because you often see talents that you have never seen before,and its often a way to learn new things.I would look foreward to the talent show too,and I wish we had a talent show at my mall.

Oh boy... The mall? . Are you kidding me. I love going to the mall as much as possiable. Last time I went to the mall was maybe a year ago. I have 3 busy children that are always go, go, go. My local mall is pretty big, 2 floors. I like to go to the mall with my friends or my husband. We have Clairs, Hot Topic, Gap, Spencers, Macys, Sears, JcPenny and a bunch more. I have spent 5 1/2 hours at the mall before. (of course, before I had children) I am pretty good at spending money at the mall... usually $150. Going to the mall only happens once in a blue moon. Maybe this comming school year I will be able to go.

Thats cool that you love going to the mall as much as you can,and that sucks that its been a year since you went to the mall,and yeah I bet it is busy with three children,and your local mall does sound pretty big,and thats cool that you go with your friends or your husband,five and a half hours is a pretty good record of being at the mall,and thats cool that you like spending money,and I can bet going to the mall is rare, because of your children,and I hope you do get to go to the mall this coming school year.

Well, it depends, i have been going more often since i meet my girlfriend, and now i go with her to the movieplex that is actually in the mall. We have 3-4 malls working and another 1-2 in construction. Well, i only visited 2 of them - they have quite a few brands inside - i don't remember all but here are some: Springtime, KFC, McDonald's, Starbucks, Kenvelo, Adiddas, Nike, Puma, Jolidon and a lot more others but i can't recall them now. Times a week ? well more like times a month in my case - i will go more often probably when they finish the mall that is being built next to me - but not to buy something, but to visit. An average a year i could say it is 15 with slight variations. Take care !

I don't go to the big mall often. Some of the places I do visit there are JCPenny's when they send me a good coupon, Target when I'm already at the mall, Red Robin go there several times a year will be going there soon for my birthday, Sears and Hallmark. The mall isn't near my home, so with gas being so high I'm on the road less. The mall is two stories in the city I'm discussing now. The mall in my city isn't indoors and its a long row of stores and the only ones I visit are Borders and Home Depot. It use to be an indoors mall, then the city decided to rebuild, as the building needed major repairs because of an earthquake.

Yeah coupons are awesome and they can save you alot of money,and Target is a pretty cool place,I have never eaten at Red Robbins,and Sears and Hallmark are both good stores too,I can understand not being on the road much due to gas prices,and thats cool that the mall is stories.Thats cool that is isnt indoors and its cool that the city decided to rebuild,and it always sucks the damage an earthquake can do.

i am not and never have been a mall person. i do not like shopping in them or hanging out in them. i like to go to individual stores or stores in a strip mall type setting. malls are too confined for me and they tend to get too crowded at certain times of the year. i don't do well in crowds.
• United States
16 May 08
Yeah it is not always fun hanging out in them,and yeah a mall can be too confined for me too,and yeah most of the time around here the mall is too crowded,and just like you I dont do well in crowds,and I am glad to see that someone else doesnt like crowds.

I detest the mall, any sort of mall at all. I really can't comprehand why anyone would want to set foot in one any more than is absolutely necessary. On the rare occassions that the only place I can get a particular item is inside one, then I'm in and out as quick as I can be. It's a weird society that we live in where going to the mall is considered a hobby by some.
• United States
16 May 08
I can understand that you hate the mall,and I can respect that,and I dont really like going anymore, especially since I hate crowds,and yeah I can understand you going to get what you need and then getting out quick,and yeah it is kind of weird that going to the mall is now a hobby.

I often go to the malls whenever I get time,and I like it,as because it make me feel relaxed after a hard day of work.My local mall is pretty big,and it has 4 floors,and it has shops of all kinds.I like spending time there,when I visit that place with some one,like my friend or family.My longest visit was 4 hours while I will have to buy many things on the eve of my friends wedding.I like buying something,I also don't mind roaming here and there too.
