The Outlets at Bergen Town Center, Paramus

4.1
The Outlets at Bergen Town Center is a shopping center located in Bergen County, New Jersey, USA. The center consists of both an indoor mall and exterior outlying stores and occupies over 105 acres split between the municipalities of Paramus and Maywood.The center, which was built as the Bergen Mall, opened in 1957 as one of several regional large-scale outdoor shopping centers rolled out nationwide, and was the largest of its kind at the time of its opening. It is the second-oldest mall in New Jersey. The mall offers a gross leasable area (GLA) of 917129sqft. The mall is located at the junction of Route 4 and Forest Avenue, and includes a separate shopping strip, south of Route 4 connected to the rest of the property via a pedestrian bridge. The mall has over the years included community spaces, including a chapel, theater for live dramas, post office, auditorium, ice rink, bowling alley and a children's amusement ride area, and is the current location of the Bergen County Museum. The Bergen Mall was designed by John Graham of New York City. The mall is subject to Bergen County's blue laws, which requires the mall to be closed on Sundays.HistoryThe mall was first planned in 1955 by Allied Stores to have 100 stores and 8,600 parking spaces in a 1.5 million ft2 mall that would include a 300000sqft Stern's store and two other 150000sqft department stores as part of the initial design. Allied's chairman B. Earl Puckett announced The Bergen Mall as the largest of ten proposed centers, stating that there were 25 cities that could support such centers and that no more than 50 malls of this type would be built nationwide. The mall opened on November 14, 1957 with great fanfare, as Dave Garroway, host of The Today Show served as master of ceremonies. Bergen Mall got its second anchor when a 135000sqft Ohrbach's location opened on August 17, 1967.

    I have known this spot since I was a kid, the place has undergone several remodels since. Several decent inexpensive restaurants in which I am guilty of haunting. Many well-known franchise specialty stores. Clicking it on Google Maps gives full directory.

    I love going here! The prices are perfect for my budget and it's quite reliable. It does get a bit crowded because it is an outlet, but definitely a great place to get all you need. Some top stores are Nike, Adidas, and H&M. Of course, there is Target, Century 21, Marshalls and much more!

    One of the best places to shop for everything. There are stores from Whole Foods to Home Goods. Vast space inside and good food court make this place great.

    Favorite place to shop. Has great selection of stores at outlet prices. Crowds on weekends and long lines at registers too. I wish there was a little more variety places to eat inside, but there's some nearby restaurants outside.

    It's a trendy mall. Went to Bobby burger palace. One of the best places to get a good burger. Juicy but not greasy. Plus lots of shopping.
