The mall is beginning to have a few stores come back to it since it got bought, and has new manegment. The movie theater is great with low prices, and the current department stores are nice. I gave the mall a high rating not because of what is there now, but starting in spring 2012 the mall is supposed to open its sushi and seafood buffet, and it's ice rink. A lot more stores are supposed to be in, and even a new sighn on route 64. Also the parking lot has already been redone, so you don't have to worry about that anymore. If your from the area it's so nice to walk around and think of all the good times you have had here.
The mall has been in decline for almost 10 years, the stores are all gone and the City of St. Charles is letting it go. New management has taken it over but nothing has happened yet. Only bright spot is von Maur and the movie theatres.
Why even keep this place open? There are no stores, the hallways are empty, and what is left is just bad. I was unimpressed during my brief walk through Sears. Yeah, the theater looks nice but that's it. No security, no staff, no nothing. The parking lot is a disaster and the stairs outside leading to the upper level food court are all rusted. Oh wait, food court? That's barely there either. The diamond retailer that was there has been turned into a lounge. Because clearly people need a place to sit. This mall really is a ghost town. It's a pity, with so much to do across the street I'd think businesses would be successful. Go to Woodfield instead.
Not that many years ago, this was a pretty happening mall! It was no Woodfield, but it had plenty of shops and a nice foodcourt. I think there was even a scene from a holiday episode of ER filmed here (nothing dramatic, characters chatting while Christmas shopping or something).
I was in the area so I decided to pop back in and nose around a bit. This place became a ghost town! I had heard it was on the decline, but now nearly nothing! I remember coming here as a teenager and assuming that it would be around basically forever (like Stratford Square, where our parents would walk with us when we were younger).
I do wonder what happened. Is ordering things from the internet really becoming so popular these days? Did they loose several anchor shops at once and were unable to secure new ones in time?
I asked the woman in the Radio Shack if she new anything. She looked like she had been there with very little work all day. She said that she didn't know, was from Chicago, and had only started working there.
It's sad to see what its become in a few short years.
There is absolutely no reason to visit the Charlestown Mall. The very few stores that remain have limited assortments and service levels are poor. The only bright spot is Von Maur. You have to wonder why they stay. The food court is abysmal. Food quality poor and variety almost non existant.
Don't even bother going to this mall, except to see a movie - the stores are all leaving, it's like an old west ghost town nowadays. Even the mall directories are so outdated - half the stores listed are no where to be found. It's been said that the latest owner is planning on making it into a strip mall.
If you want good shopping, go to Geneva Commons. If you want OK shopping and a movie theater, go to Charlestown. The mall's been going downhill for years, it seems like the only thing keeping it alive is the movie theater. It's never really busy anymore except on big movie nights.
