Westfield Shoppingtown Independence
Very large popular mall that includes almost 150 specialty stores where you can buy apparel for the whole family, as well as jewelry, gifts, and unique items. A food court that features ten eateries is also inside the mall.
I worked at Poractiv, it's a cart right next to the rainbow sandals cart..neways i liked my job until i realized the manager for the rainbow store next to me was completely crazy. Her name is Elle. She has worked in that mall for a long time, and I do believe she still works there..suprisingly enough. DO NOT TELL HER ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF!!! She will stalk you. If she can't stalk you, she will gossip about you, and spread lies behind your back. She is a very mean and nasty BULLY. I worked in that mall for almost 4 years, and when I ended up working near her, I ran as far from that place as possible..and I would advise you to do the same,
They have a pretty big mall, its got a large selection of stores. My only problem is with certain stores that dont carry my size in shoes or clothes. I wear size 11 in womens shoes and i wear 11-14 in pants. I think that is average and most stores dont carry my sizes. But other than that i love the mall. I also like the selection of food they have, it varies for peoples different tastes.
So yea, the mall is pretty chill.

It's not very big, but it has a lot of stores, A good food court, and reasonable prices in most stores, except that Chinese store, I guess it's authentic, and Claires is expensive. And it has a movie theater in it too, but i've never been inside it. i recommend it but then ofcourse it is the only mall around. i think.
I no longer feel safe shopping at Independence Mall. I have seen crimes being committed and called Mall Security and was told the Mall will not allow them to do anything. I have heard people say which stores they can shoplift in because nothing will happen to them, (which is most). Shop Mayfair where it is safe!!
This is a mall, A MALL, Nothing more, nothing less.
It has your basic inner stores with a JC Penny, Sears, Belk and Dillard's as the ancors. There is no special draw to it.
There is a kid jumper thing inside by the playground - note this playground is for toddlers. The jumper thing is a bungie corded swing-harness that enables to one to jump extra high and do flips. People up to 200 lbs are seen playing here.
There is also an arcade. Parents note you may not leave your children here alone. Not that I think many would, but don't consider leaving an 11 years old or so there either. It appears that mostly high school kids hang out here. There is no supervision. At times, I have seen a teenager walking around with an apron on to make sure change is given when there isn't a machine to do so.
The architecture offers nothing you haven't seen elsewhere. There is no affiliation with the town of Wilmington or the beach. One keosk in the mall sells nothing but Rainbow sandals. Aside from this one place, there are no indications that would lead you to believe you are in a tourist destination.
I personally find the shopping at this mall leaving much to be desired. I find all clothing retail stores to fall short of what is trendy and has value at the same time. Wilmington and the surrounding area has either inexpensive tredy fashions. A few boutiques are scattered througout the area that cater to the pocketbooks of those who don't check prices. The ancor stores seem to cater to those who want long term value for their money and style or to juniors who won't care what they'll be wearing next season or year.
If your are a tourest, don't bother with the mall - there is nothing you haven't already seen unless you are coming out from under a rock somewhere.
Looking for some special clothing items? Check out Lumina Station. Then maybe Landfall, and the Forum. The Mayfair has a few national retail shops, but nothing you can't find elsewhere. Downtown has lots of the fun finds.
