There needs to be a serious accounting for what is planned with this space. As it stands right now (October of 2007) The only remaining stores are GNC, Radioshack, The Dollar Tree and The Dress Barn - Then there is a chineese restaurant and a nail salon. THAT IS IT.
So NO - I would not recomend this location to vacationers looking to kill some time. There is no need for more witneses to the death of a mall through sheer indiference of ownership.
I remember a vivid mall many years back, I dont know what happened to it, but they have obviosly already dropped the ball on recovering before the holidays this year.
Norwichtown Mall is perfect for those who like small malls. When full there would be about 25-30 stores. It is going through transition right now and has about 10 empty storefronts.As someone who does some weekend and seasonal business there I can attest to the fact there is money to be made, and deals to be found. My favorites are Waldenbook, Radioshack, Suburban stationary, BeeBees restaurant. for mall walkers 3 round trips are a mile
