Yes I agree with most of you that this is small mall but it serve it purpose. Get what you need and go on with your day. Some of the review by Out of Towner can be so rude. I understand that this is military town and most of you move because of your spouse but there no need to judge this mall so rudely. I'm also military spouse and came from a big city and seen bigger mall.. I think the people here are very lucky to have such a steady economic then most big city. Keep up the good work and support your local business.
If all you want to do with your time is shop and eat then, ok, the mall is small. But if your like me, and a whole city of people who have better things to do with their time, its just fine! Geeshhh.... Why does it seem a whole generation of people need to be entertained and waited on by others to be happy? Go for a walk, go play golf, go for a bike ride, read a book down by the river... or go home or back where you came from so you can shop til you drop and be happy! Stop whining. There IS more to life than shopping!
Our mall is not the best, nor is it the worst! they have realized the need to grow/improve and are making those improvements. in reading previous posts i see a few references to the food court, they built a new one! also, keep in mind Ft. Campbell is a self contained post(size of a small city) and have their own versions of a mall (called a post exchange), toy stores and a strip center. also it is a 30 min by HWY drive (about the same distance to the bardford square mall in hoptown). last thing to keep in mind is that Clarksville has been a city of steady growth, the mall is a private business that responds to its market. it isn't instantanious, it will always take a bit. they are trying to imrove, so we need to provide them with our constructive feedback to get the stores we desire.
since i have 3000 characters left i will use them.
simular scenario i experienced in Bosnia. 1996 as part of IFOR we were deployed to bosnia fpr peacekeeping missions. mud up to your knees, living in tents without heat or AC, some troops(pilots) had AC units in their tents but not alot. extreme heat and cold to deal with, but we adapted and carried on. the camp new they needed to improve the conditions as the camp's prominance increased and started building a "C-Hut" compund in the center of camp. these were wood structure housing units complete with HVAC units and allowed for smaller incriments of accomidations (2-8man rooms instead of 30 to a tent). even a dining facility was part of the compound. walk way provided to keep them out of the mud. very nice upgrade from the rest of the camp. this compound was only for the new/imcoming units and the current units where to stay with what they had until they were phased out as the units redeployed.
once the newest soldiers arrived and occupied the brand new compound, i heard several complainig about living in wooden boxes and having to eat in the DFAC (army dining facility) all the time. that upset me!
i am military, originally from Philadelphia, PA. clarksville is a much smaller city but has a great mix of country and city life. Clarksville is not a metropolis so don't expect the same volume as the major cities can afford, but i'm sure we will continue to grow...the mall as well.
The mall is sooooo crowded its like the Blvd Bumper to Bumper the New Food Court is nice but its very crowded since it only holds 200 people what a joke Clarksville has almost 133,000 people and this is what we get. Bowling Green and Paducah Kentucky mall is way better and the cities are way smaller and correction the mall doesn't have a Hollister.
I enjoy the Clarksville mall. True, we could use a little upgrading, but we are about to open a new food court and we just got a Hollister. Don't come here looking for a day full of fancy stores and excesive spending, but it has just about anything you would need:)
It has most of the major stores needed. If you're from a major city like New York then you won't appreciate this mall. I came to Clarksville with my husband on a business trip and I enjoyed going to the mall. Clarksville is not a major city so don't expect the Mall of America. For the size of the city it's a great mall.
I dislike EVERYTHING about this so-called " MALL".
I came here 3 days ago with my military husband...( I'm from BEAUTIFUL south FLORIDA... SUNSHINE ) ..to this COLD, boring state...I tried to go shopping to cheer me up...NEEDLESS to say,,it only depressed me even more !!
This is NO MALL, this is merely an enclosed shopping center.
The mall is not big at all, doesn't really have a food court like most malls and it seems like most of the stores doesn't carry as much stock as other malls, especially when it comes to children's clothing, it is lacking big time!!! I just about have to drive to Nashville to find anything for my little girl.
They need a food court and for as many people here its not that great,the green wood mall in bowling green kentucky is bigger !And theres no military post.They really need a food court and some more stores like a holister :]
I came from NY, the malls there are huge. I came here, understanding it;s not NY but come on. I moved b/c of my husband is in the military you kinda thing with a lot of ppl moving here b/c of Ft campbell there mall and stores would be amazing. but sadly there not. Someone definetly needs to upgrade that mall.
