Freehold Raceway Mall is a super-regional mall in Freehold, New Jersey, United States. The mall's anchor stores are JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, Macy's, Nordstrom and Sears. The mall is owned and managed by The Macerich Company, having purchased the mall from developer Wilmorite in 2005, and has 1671000 sqft of gross leasable area, making it the second largest shopping mall in New Jersey. An outdoor lifestyle addition, begun in January 2007, added 100000sqft of additional retail space. On November 23, 2011, the mall was ranked in a Weather Channel news article titled "The Most Congested Malls for Black Friday". The Freehold Raceway Mall ranked third in the nation.HistoryConstruction on Freehold Raceway Mall commenced in 1987, across the street from the Freehold Raceway on land used for stables. The stables still exist, connected by a small pedestrian/horsecart bridge over Route 9, but they can only be accessed via mall entrance road. In preparation for the mall's opening, the Freehold Circle was eliminated and rebuilt into an at-grade intersection with traffic lights and jughandles. A traffic light and jughandle for the mall entrance road from Route 9 was also constructed due south of the intersection of U.S. Route 9 and Business Route 33.

  • Great mall to shop for fine items. Would recommend. It's worth the trip. Many good name stores. Nice resturants for lunch or dinner after. 
  • There are quite a few places to shop, but... I know I'm a bit of a mall snob - I like my mall simple and down-to-earth. Freehold has been trying to go more "upscale" over the past few years, and I'm not a huge fan of the changes. Part of the problem is that they started out with limited parking, especially in the front, and then they started to add new construction that took up more and more of those front parking lots. Part of the problem is that they are bringing in more and more of the bennys, who just generally manage to make places less desirable to visit if you're a local.
  • i don't mind popping in a couple times a year, to take my son for a haircut and to the lego store, and to take my daughter to hot topic, and to drop my wife off at uniqlo, and for me to enjoy the air conditioning, esp in the summer. but there's no big and tall store for me to shop at, and parking is a pain (it's probably a full mile to get from Rt 9 to your parking spot!) and, ugh, it's a mall, yanno?
  • Good variety of stores. Mall is kept clean and well-maintained, and the stores are stocked well. There's something for everyone in this mall, on all sorts of budgets. For example, if Lord and Taylor are too expensive, try JC Penny or one of the other less expensive clothing stores. There seems to be a cheaper alternative for every luxury item, from food to clothes to exercise equipment. Very well laid out and moderately easy to access all the stores across the two floors. Would recommend for a daily shopping trip.
  • Overall Freehold is a very nice mall however one huge annoyance is the kids train that runs around the lower level. It makes a ton of noise and is a big annoyance. The food court upstairs is pretty nice. Selection of stores is good. Get rid of the train and I would be stopping by more frequently.
  • Great parking, very clean and lots of shopping choices. Took the kids to Build-a-Bear and the Lego Store. They have a play area for small children, which is convenient and don't forget to check out the Carousel. The few times I was there was a very pleasant experience.
