You can see everything in this mall in about 5 minutes, your first clue should be the lack of vehicles in the parking lot.

Great location but many tenants have left for the Manawa Power District or closed entirely. Too bad! I would rather walk the mall than drive to each store in Manawa.

No stores open that are worth a crap. I would say that 90% of the floor space is empty. The only reason I go is to walk in the winter for exercise.

Not worth stopping. There are about 6 stores up and going in the whole mall. Just a lot of closed up spaces.

Whenever I have time on my hands this is a very good place to go for shopping! But the Mall of Bluffs does need more shops!

OK. But needs more stores. Not worth a long drive but decent if you live near it. Needs more stores with better prices and more events.

I'm combining a couple of visits into one review. I've been here, at the old Target anchor building for a couple of trade shows, and that worked out decently. In fact, it's a far better facility for such things than the WestFair facility, where trade...More
