This unique collection of shops is housed in a renovated, turn-of-the-century trolley barn. Brick pathways wind through trendy shopes like Williams-Sonoma, Gap, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, and Banana Republic. Featured restaurants include Tony Roma's, Desert Edge Brewery at the Pub , Rodizio Grill , and a Hard Rock Cafe adds nightlife. This is the place with everything, the convenience of a mall, but the atmosphere of a specialty boutique. Wander through the maze of cobblestone and enjoy the shopping experience.
I will not visit Trolley square while they maintain their ban on legal concealed carry.
This policy just makes it more dangerous, and actually makes the policy makers COMPLICIT in the crime and/or murder that may occur there, and which HAS ALREADY occurred there, less than five years ago. Five visitors died and four were wounded in that criminal incident before police were able to stop the violence.
Statistics consistently demonstrate a drop in violent crime when responsible, and more importantly, properly trained citizens do not have their 2nd amendment RIGHTS violated by bureaucratic "politically correct" impositions of questionable legality. It is not rocket science to understand why. It is also a deception and an illusion to say that the police will protect you in every case of extreme exigency.
The posting of the policy banning lawful concealed carry at the entrance ways even advertises to the criminal element that law-abiding visitors there are defenseless. You can be assured that those who come on the ("open-to-the public") property with criminal intent will have no regard for any posted prohibition on weapons.
I have enjoyed Trolley Square in the past, and look forward to again enjoying it when the management can start showing more common sense and respect for our rights as law-abiding citizens.
I live close to Salt Lake and I visit Trolley Square at least once a year sometimes up to five times. I love all the shops that they have and Rodizio's is definitely the best restaurant that Salt Lake has to offer. I recommend it for everybody. Every year Trolley Square had something different about it that makes it so much better.
In a small city like Salt Lake, ANY attraction causes commotion. Firetrucks, the traveling circus, wild fires and demolitions of any size are subjects the locals keep under scrutiny for decades. This "shopping center" one square block includes parking, sounds great but when visiting, you can see all their shops in 10 minutes. The same goes for "South Town Mall" 20 miles south and "The Gateway" where mostly "private" investors show off at oppening night in local newspapers; but you can't find the simple variety that exists in average malls like Costa Mesa, California like South coast Plaza. Most merchandise is VERY expensive and the quality is far below standards. There is no rush, no ETA and no way to facilitate a fast transaction because we are in the middle of NOWHERE...
When I travel I always look for unique shopping experiences - and avoid the malls, as they are basically the same nationwide. That's why I loved shopping Trolley Square. Most of the shops were fun, innovative, and high quality - exactly what I'm looking for! I found some GREAT gift items, good food, and friendly service. I was there on a week night, which hopefully explains the limited foot traffic. Trolley Square is a gem, and should be marketed as such. SLC has a "diamond in the rough", so polish it up and let it shine!!!!
trolley square management recently prohibited concealed carry on their property, im my opinion this makes this a dangerous place to go, take your chances, appears they encourage violence by advertising an unprotected clientel
I spent a lot of time browsing through Trolley Square in early 1980s. It was a very cool place then. I have not been there for more than 20 years, so I can imagine that things have changed quite considerably. I especially enjoyed looking at all of the artifacts that were on display there at the time.
The best thing about trolley square is it's old charachter. The one place that really plays on the interesting architecture it provides is the brewery/restraunt. It's a warm and exciting atmosphere. I think if there were more places like that at trolley square, there would be more people. Without people around it seems very lowly. that's honestly why I don't think to go there often. But It could make a great hub for upscale and trendy business if the right people were involved.
I stopped in this place because it seemed so absolutely unique and cute! The concept of it is very good, and it looks like at one point in time it was a very impressive place. However, with bigger malls opening, it seems it got overshadowed and there's hardly any stores worth stopping in, nothing really exciting and it seems very hollow. I wish there was a bang there because it could be extremely successful! Rodizio's is definetly worth going to.
This place has a nice area to shop. Excellent stores and quality. Top noch restaurants.. so why does it look so lonely? empty? a bit cold?.
Management must put more public events, support little stores to stay there longer. Kill the Cell phone and silver booths. they are a bit trashy. find ways to atract vendors and patrons. festivities, musicals, meeting place for all ages. Sponsor city activities. Show interest and promote minority business and patrons. Be a bit more "avant gard" If that mall does not wake up soon business will hurt. Same, same does not last forever. Gradually but improve and change. Trolley Square in Salt Lake City has tons of potential in the right hands...
