Colonial Mall Macon
One of Georgia's largest enclosed shopping malls, this premier mall is anchored by Belk Matthews, Rich's, J.C. Penney, Sears, Parisian, and Dillard's plus features over 200 specialty shops, over 30 fabulous eateries in the food court, and a family entertainment center.
The Macon Mall seems to be on a downfall with many other malls across the country. Due to the opening of a new outside mall in North Macon. The market in Macon has been divided. The Macon Mall is host to 4 anchors now: J.C.Penny's,Sears, Belks,Macy's(once Riches). Dillards moved to a new located at the new mall. Parisians closed with the many others. More than half of the specialty shops are empty.The Macon Mall is still home to Journeys, Footlocker, Finishline, Bath and Body Works,Hot Topic, Underground Station, and many mom and pop stores.
I've been going to the Colonial Mall since the 80's and have always enjoyed my visits. But the last few years the mall has changed. It has become crime and gang ridden. Many of the stores have either closed or are in the process. Security seems to be non-existent. Sad to see the mall deteriorate so badly.
From this day forward I hate this mall security. From the time me and my friends walked in we were followed as if were causing problems. We really don't go to the mall so we don't know the where abouts of the different stores. We were looking for a particular item and store and parked on the very opposite side and still didn't get a chance to find what we wanted. We had our ID checked 3 times and was told we had to leave because we had been in the mall too long without bags. So, when did they make a time limit of how long you could be in the mall without bags? Have it ever occurred that someone may not have found what they were looking for? I felt harrassed, misjudged, and I think I was treated unfair. I know its important to keep people safe but I don't think security have the right to judge a person according to the way they dress just because of previous incidents that occurred in the mall(yes I did my research and watch the news). Mall Security needs to learn that you can't judge a book by its cover!
A variety of stores to shop, courtesy people, always clean. Good places to eat just need a larger variety. Christmas is a lovely time to visit; decorations are beautiful and sales are fantastic at such places as Aeropostle, Old Navy, Mori Luggage, Bels, Macys, etc. Always a sale at some store. Good place for teens to shop.
I am from a smaller town & hate to drive in Atlanta traffic. So for shopping we head to Macon. It is so disappointing to see so many shops in the mall have closed. It makes us wonder what is happening. I hope for better luck in the future!
Very large for a town this size. 1.4 million square feet. A lot of atmosphere, and very well laid out. Very nice food court and a carousel for the kids. Excellent price and selection at the Belks store.
Just avoid Friday and Saturday nights--Too many unsupervised kids and young adults trying to show out.
Overall, a great mall.
I did not like that the mall did not have a public hand directory of there store. I really did not know where I was going. I looked at the big directory but I could not keep up with all where everything was at. That was my biggest disappointment.
I love the atmosphere the friendly people and all the really awesome shops. I think any family who likes to shop and feel welcome should visit any time of the year. People who don't like fairly busy atmosphere's should not visit but, if you are looking for discounts this is the place to go!
One of the biggest malss in GA outside Atlanta. Nice stores (though not upscale-niceer mall being built in N.Macon) VERY clean. Love to go. Not too much traffic exept the holidays. (Wireless Internet!!!)
