Liked having Kohl's, Younkers, JC Penney and TJ Max stores. Found a lot of bargains! It's a good mall for walkers too. I put some miles on my shoes!

North Grand Mall - nothing too special about it and I wouldn't consider it a spectacular place. There are some of the typical stores there like Younkers, Claires, Victoria's Secret and such. You can get some shopping done, but I wouldn't consider it a tourist...More

Visited this mall a couple of times when I was on a business trip to Ames. It's small and the only mall in Ames and has few good stores like KOHL'S, JCPenny, Dressbarn, Gap Factory store, Bath and Body works and few more.
