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.
I work near NWP and used to like running over there for a bit of lunchtime shopping. The folks at Dillards (unlike those in the Galleria) were consistently courteous and helpful, as were those at Bath and Body Works.
My last visit, probably 6 months ago, revealed many closed stores, and those that remained had a scarcity of merchandise that made shopping unappealing. It is telling that Westfield dumped this mall. We always warn any clients visiting from out of town to avoid Northwest after dark for safety reasons. The presence of the police station in the mall did to help for a while, but it is no longer enough to give a shopper a sense of security.
Sadly, only a massive overhaul combined with extensive marketing might save this mall from oblivion and coax shoppers back.
Just visited NWP today and was shocked to see what a ghost town this has turned into. A very friendly associate at one of stores told me that a Walmart Supercenter is going to be built where the clearance Dillard's area is. The rest of the mall is going to be completly remodled and faceted after the popular Mills Mall. It is sad to see all that this mall has been through... as I grew up and now have children of my own. General Growth Properties now owns this mall (the same owners of the Saint Louis Galleria). I hope that they are ready to dump some money into this massive mall. It would be great to see it revitalized! Now, if they could just figure out a way to keep the 'busline' and 'thug-like' customer under control- it would be amazing to lose it's reputation for being unsafe!
The mall has certainly lost it's luster. What a shame. It would be nice to see someone take interest in updating it. It has such potential. There just aren't many draws there now. They do have the Dillard's Clearance Center.They have lot's of bargains but don't expect good service. If you have time to look and lot's of patients than this is the place for you.
Vitamin World is unorganized. Items on the
shelf are mixed up so be careful if you
think you are getting two of the same, you
may not be. The newer staff is very rude.
What should have been a 10 minute transaction
took an hour due to the rude, hysterical
I hadn't visited northwest plaza in a couple of years and recently went back to "walk the mall" during inclement weather. What a delightful experience! Oldies playing on the speakers all over the mall added to the fun for mature adults. It was clean, they've added play places for little ones, Macys is new, lots of fashion stores, a jewelry and repair, shoe repair (where can you find that these days?). We've been back a couple of more times to walk, shop and eat.
Bravo Northwest Plaza! Keep up the excellent change.
When I was a kid, NWP was cool, because it was an outdoor mall. However, in the early 1980s, that atmosphere had become unpopular, so the owners decided to do something radical and enclose the mall. For those who remember, it was a long process; but the results were well worth the wait. NWP became the largest enclosed mall in Missouri, and the crowds were fantastic. Having moved, I hadn't visited the mall since the late 1990s. I visited the mall 2 days ago and felt as though I had stepped into some kind of futuristic war zone!! I entered the mall through Dillard's and quickly realized that the store is in GREAT trouble, as the entire upper level has been closed. After getting over that shock, I ventured out into the mall and was again completely awestruck. There are no people and no stores. What happened to this mall???
Northwest Plaza was wonderful when I was a kid. My family drove to St. Louis every year to go Christmas shopping at NWP. It was an outdoor mall then, and we loved it.
Until recently my husband and I took our kids there to walk and play. There were very few stores, and even fewer where we would shop. But, it was at least resonably safe and clean.
There are even fewer good stores now...mostly a ghost town.
And, there is no way in the world I would take my children there...in my opinion it is the most unsafe place in North County.
I don't know what the new ownership is doing, but I certainly see no improvements.
DON'T GO TO NORTHWEST PLAZA...total waste of time and completely unsafe.
