  • Eastland Mall is essentially a cautionary tale for the end of brick and mortar capitalism. It actually boasts a surprising number of stores, I think it's officially back above 50% occupancy now, and the food court is surprisingly good - I recommend all three of the places down there. However, the remainder of the mall has a strong Dawn of the Dead vibe; lots of missing anchor stores, lots of missing stores in general, and the remainder of the stores aren't always reliably open. The arcade sucks. There's no excusing that - put at least one Capcom machine in there. It's definitely not the Eastland Mall from its heyday, but it's still got enough shopping options, as well as a couple of other food and coffee options, for it to be worth a trip. Especially since there's not really an alternative for an indoor shopping mall anywhere in town.
