  • Had to literally run in here to get something for a wedding-lots of road work being done around there, but was able to get in and out quickly. Would have liked to have looked around some more.  more »
  • We were looking for a place to kill some time before checking into our hotel. This was a nice mall with a ton of stores and restaurants. Nicer than our malls at home. May stop again before our visit i...  more »

  • I will rate this mall 2 stars, I rate it as 2 for a few reasons, 1. This mall is in my hometown, it's nice to have a mall, don't get me wrong, but it's sort of a boring mall, a lot of clothing stores are mostly for children- younger adults in their twenties, and they need more afforable accessory stores and less jewelry stores i feel like we have 7 jewelry stores and it's ridiculous, why so many?! We need more entertainment in our mall. 2. I don't like the food court, now the food court is actually clean, but I don't like the set up of the food court whatsoever. 3. The pet store, the pet store in the mall (Heartland Pets) gets it's puppies from puppy mills, this pet store has been here for maybe over 20 years now, it's filthy and disgusting, these poor dogs are stuck in cages and some people think it's actually "cute"?! No, it's sad. This place needs to go away, what also makes it more disgusting is that it's right next to the food court, eating in the food court while smelling pee from the pet store will make you gag, when I pass the pet store that's what I smell...... pee....... these puppies pee in their cages, they sit in their pee and they lay in their pee, never support heartland pets, whatever the staff tell you they lie to you about! I can't blame this whole thing on the other stores here, I try to only buy stuff here when I need to and since this is the only mall in Erie.
  • It's a mall, I'll give it that. Probably the biggest in the area. But for me, being from out of town, its a kinda dinky mall. One thing positive I can give it is the playground they have for the younger kids. My 2 year old loves it!
  • This place is clean. Erie just has stores coming and going so that's how it is in the mall. This mall is pretty small compared to most I've been in. They did some upgrades and added a food court which is nice.
  • It used to be lively and thriving, but now about one third of the shops are vacant. It has a great food court and different dining options scattered throughout the building. There's not a huge variety of stores, but it's a cozy place to spend an afternoon.
  • The mall doesn't have the best selection. The best stores. Ross, TJ Maxx, 5 Below and Ollie's are all outside the mall. If you ask me, hey could bull doze the mall and turn it into one big outlet Centre. That would make the trip to Erie worthwhile.
