Northwest Plaza is the largest mall in North St. Louis County. There are several stores for apparel, electronics, shoes, fine jewelry and athletic gear. The Plaza has five department stores—Dillard's and Sears. If all your shopping makes you hungry, stop off at the food court or one of the several restaurants (Italian, Mexican and American are among the choices). A movie theater and an arcade with a miniature golf course will keep you entertained, too. Northwest Plaza is less than a mile away from Lambert Airport.

In the seventies and eighties this was a really nice outdoor mall...which they should have left as an outdoor mall. Enclosing it only masked the real problem....the "hood" 'type people that went there..and the crime that they brought with them. I went to the mall about ten years ago.. it was like visiting a freak show. They just need to bulldoze the whole mall.
Northwest plaza is a sitting duck theres no stores no type of entertainment we heard stories and stories of what was to be of Northwest plaza but nothing has happen nothing change but I’m a resident and I’ve been talking to other residents who feel that they suffer enough to have to take or catch a ride cross town to enjoy themselves when Northwest plaza brought family entertainment to their front doors other resident who doesn’t live near the area remember and miss northwest plaza our elders love the JC penny outlet that was there i know if others feel and help me with this petition in a state of mind we can get Northwest plaza back bring stores we dont have near the area restaurants, a theater,clothes, shoes, jobs that was lost, and so much more we have a opportunity to make a change a difference and now heres our chance if we didn’t like the stores that was there at first we can bring others change Northwest plaza all the way around better to and for the ones who needs it, and thats just it not something that we want to change but for something we need to change for the better I just people to help me out with this petition please and thanks
Years ago when I was married my wife and I would take occasional weekend getaways in St Louis, and oftentimes would stay near NWP. It was always somewhere that we would regularly visit and shop at.
I probably hadn't been there in close to ten years when, a couple of weekends ago, my new significant other and I were in the St Louis area. I told her about how great NWP was and how it was so huge with so many stores. Imagine my surprise when we visited this foresaken, once great ghost town!
The food court, which I remember being full of fast food stands and brimming with people, was down to one establishment. The theater was no longer in business. There were still a couple of anchor stores open, but the rest of the mall was virtually empty. The few stores that were still open definitely catered to a distinct demographic, consisting of cheap jewelry, tennis shoes, hats, and "unique" clothing. Had I been in the market for a purple three piece suit with matching alligator skin shoes (which I actually did see offered for sale) I might have found it to be more appealing, if you know what I mean!
We left immediately, and after I'd returned home I did a bit of searching on the internet to see if I could find any explanation for what had happened to the place. It seems that many of the good jobs in the immediate area had disappeared (TWA, Ford, McDonnell Douglas), along with families with the money to spend in malls. As lower classes of people moved into the area, the mall became overrun with "gangsta" types. Fights, muggings, shoplifting, car thefts, and even shootings became commonplace. Apparently the management of the mall didn't recognize the need for more security, and quickly people quit going to this place where they felt unsafe.
It's really a shame that this place turned out like this. As we were walking through it, I commented that it reminded me of the movie "I Am Legend". I almost felt as if I was the last person on earth, the place was so empty.
The Mall now has less than 30 stores, and only has ONE place to get something to eat at the food court. THAT IS BAD!
Almost All Smaller Stores
A Run-Down Macys
24 Hour Fitness
Nasty Bread Co
Some Shoe Stores..
The Mall is in a terrible area and it used to be no one came over there at night just so they would not get mugged or shot, now they don't go over there because there is nothing to go over there for. Everything is pretty much gone, you walk in there and its a ghost town. It's only good to jog a mile or so when its to hot or to cold. I remember this mall used to be the mall to go to everyone went to it, it had EVERYTHING. Now it has nothing, as like the rest of the area it is dead.
They are currently in talks to knock it down and build a new strip-mall with a Wal-Mart Super Center. If that ever happens it will just go getto to with in five years or less.
Northwest Plaza ha try Northwest ghost town. At Least It is Clean... but then again no one goes in there so there is not much to clean anyways.
Save your money and time and go to Mid Rivers or Chesterfield Mall. The St. Louis Mills is only about ten years away from becoming like Northwest.
Northwest Plaza (The Plaza) used to be the main event for me and my friends growing up and now when I go, it hurts me to see what it has become...No tilt! No movies! No food!
Remember the name Joy Swaby...I will, hopefully, be the reason why this mall will become the main attractiong again!!
THIS MALL USED TO BE A MALL WHERE YOU COULD SHOP, HANG OUT, CATCH LUNCH, OR SEE A MOVIE NOW U SHOULD ONLY VISIT THIS MALL IF YOU ARE JUST RUNNING IN TO GRAB SOMETHING AND THATS IT. NO OTHER REASON WHAT SO EVER...!
I love the fact that it is clean and I feel the mall can still survive if the right stores are there. NWP has always been given a bad reputation and I know most of the things that are said are not true. I have shop there for the last 28 years and I have never experience. Most of the things that I here and read about are not true other than employee's at some of the stores not being very friendly. That shopping experience can happen at any mall. The other crimes and shop lifting happens at all the malls but it is not being reported. I shop at all of the St. Louis malls. NWP just have this reputation because it is considered to be in an area that is middle to low income. I am at this mall 4 to 5 times a week. Stop bashing NWP just because its not the Galleria.
Anyone who says this Mall is good or great has no idea or is 10 years old....this Mall is UGLY, OLD, and is not in a Great location! People are mugged, shot or robbed all the time there.....and NO ONE in this area wants to go there at night.....so please, don't comment unless you speak the truth about it.
