If you’re new to the area, you’ll want to scope out the good places to shop. The Woodlands Mall is centrally located and has just about everything! A “premier fashion center in north Houston,” you’ll find over 160 stores and 30 restaurants to choose from, containing everything from baby clothes to tuxedos and vitamins to Legos.
Situated on Interstate 45 and just off Lake Woodlands Drive, the mall is easily accessible, as are surrounding shopping centers. The mall is open daily from 10am until 9pm, with extended holiday shopping hours in November, December and January. And during this time, don’t forget to stop in and visit with Santa!
The mall is jam-packed with fashion options with anchor department stores Dillards, JC Penny, Macy’s and Nordstrom. Clothing and accessory stores for youngsters include Gymboree, Abercrombie Kids, The Children’s Place, and Janie and Jack, among many others. Teens will love Abercrombie, Gap, Pacsun, and Wet Seal. Specialty shops include Godiva, Pet Fair and Spencers. Of course you’ll find Sunglass Hut, Things Remembered and The Disney Store. There are also five sports and fitness stores, fifteen shoe stores, and eight home furnishing stores.
In the mood for some fun? Try Build-A-Bear Workshop or pop into Barnes & Noble where you can peruse a magazine. Need a snack to re-energize your shopping trip? Dippin’ Dots or Great American Cookie can satisfy your sweet tooth, while Auntie Anne’s or Pretzel Maker have great savory treats. Starbucks, Teavana or Aroma Coffee Bar provide that little caffeine pick-me-up.
When you’re tired of shopping, stop over at Just Nails for a relaxing manicure or pedicure. Need a new hairdo? Master Cuts, Regis Salons and Snip-Its (for kids) are right there. Or if you’re looking for a whole new style, check out Sephora or Supreme for skin care and makeup.
Lunch or dinner can be enjoyed at one of several restaurants that provide a respite from the hustle of the mall hallways. Bonefish Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, and Fleming’s Steakhouse are great places for a nice dinner with friends and family. Brio, Mi Cocina, and PF Chang’s are also perfect for an un-hurried meal.
Whether shopping on your own or out with the kids, The Woodlands Mall is a great place to spend the day!
