If you will be visiting the city of Kalamazoo, or moving to the city on a permanent basis, you will find an incredible number of things to see and do. You will find an unbelievable number of museums, as well as theaters, art exhibits, historical sites and more. You will also find that the city is rich in shopping options. Where should you start your shopping odyssey? The most popular option here is The Crossroads Mall of Kalamazoo.
This mall is the shopping destination of choice if you are looking for designer clothes, jewelry, dining, entertainment, or almost anything else for that matter. What will you find at this mall? First, you will find several major anchor stores here. Burlington Coat Factory has a considerable presence within the mall, though you will also find Macy’s, JC Penny and Sears. For those who want to shop outside of the department stores, there are options such as Aeropostale, Jewelry Express, All Stirred Up!, American Eagle Outfitters, Buckle, Campus Den, Cellairis, Coldwater Creek, Eddie Bauer, Spencer Gifts, Famous Footwear and the Gap, just to name a small fraction of those available.
If you prefer not to shop at The Crossroads Mall, you can find a number of other Kalamazoo malls in the area. You will find Kalamazoo Mall, in the downtown district, while The Radisson Shops are located within the Radisson Plaza development. Make sure that you check out the city’s other distinct districts for excellent shopping options. The downtown area is home to six districts – Arcadia, Bronson Park, Haymarket, East End, South Town and the Kalamazoo Mall district.
Of course, you might prefer other shopping options, as well. If this sounds like you, you will find a number of boutique shops and venues in the downtown area. This area has undergone considerable revitalization in recent years, with a new emphasis on making the downtown area a true reflection of the Kalamazoo community.
