This My home town just visiting it
North Grand Mall has many different stores. A store for everyone. It has connections between most stores, so you do not have to go back outside. There are also places to eat and a movie theater, also a play area and multiple candy dispensers for kids. It is also very large and a great place to walk, and many different sales throughout the year for a quick bargain.
