Arbor Place, Douglasville

#53 of 97 in Shopping in Georgia
Arbor Place Mall, the only regional mall directly serving the growing western suburbs of Atlanta, is located in Douglasville, Georgia, in Douglas County. Opened in October 1999, the mall was originally to be anchored by Dillard's, Parisian, Sears, and Upton's. The Upton's chain folded prior to the opening of the mall, but the contract to build the store was still completed, resulting in a vacant anchor when the mall opened. A home improvement chain named Dekor took over the Upton's site in 2000. The chain folded in 2001 and once again left the mall with a vacant anchor space. In 2003, JCPenney took over the site.The two-level mall has been very successful and was the first to bring upscale shopping to an underserved area. Shoppers previously had to travel long distances to other Atlanta area malls. Rich's, long planned to open at the mall, finally opened as Rich's-Macy's in 2004, one of only two stores signed with the hyphen. In 2005 the Rich's name was dropped, and became just Macy's. Arbor Place Mall was built by and is still owned by CBL & Associates.Along with this, Arbor Place Mall enforces a youth escort policy, known as YEP, stating youths under 17 must be accompanied by an adult on Friday and Saturday nights after 6:00pm. This applied to the entire mall and is strictly enforced.

  • I used to go here for a quick lunch all the time. I would request Abbi D. as my waitress because she is the greatest waitress I have ever had in my life. The new manager is not enjoyable to talk to. The beer selection used to be amazing, however, now it is just a buffalo wild wings with better lighting.
  • Great mall for your shopping needs. Plenty of stores to shop at and the food court has plenty of places to eat. I personally enjoy the satisfaction of finding great deals all in one spot. The movie theater is my favorite place to visit.
  • The parking has always been good. I look forward to more higher end stores and more restaurants. The movie theater needs an upgrade i.e. reclining chairs, reserved seating, and more food options. There is one thing I hate about this mall. The bathroom are stinky and need a MAJOR UPGRADE!
  • Arbor place was great, stores for every type of person. But the biggest highlight for me, the movie theater in the mall. Very spacious, I've seen movie theaters that were their own building that didn't have that much room, they have candy machines in the halls leading to the theater if you don't want to wait in the long lines at the counter. The food court in the mall wasn't half bad either, I didn't get a look at everything in their, but I saw a Chick-fil-A and that's good enough for me. The GameStop is a little small, but then again, please show me one that isn't. I'm serious, if you know of a game stop that is bigger than an average sized store in a shopping center, please find a way to contact me with the address. The crowds are sometimes ridiculous but that's the story with all malls.
  • I watched them construct this huge Mall of Georgia over a period of 2 years. It offers some unusual businesses and several wonderful restaurants. All kinds of events take place here on the weekends.
