The Gardens Mall

Even though this is a traditional, indoor mall, there is nothing same-old or average about it. If a mall could be called elegant, this is the one deserving of the descriptor. With attractive architecture, beautiful landscaping and an excellent selection of quality retailers, this mall is a pleasure to visit. The center’s anchor stores include Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, while highlights of the 150 fine specialty stores include: Chanel, David Yurman, Hugo Boss, Eileen Fisher, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo and Tiffany & Co. Need personal attention? The mall offers concierge services. www.thegardensmall.com
