Tacoma Mall is situated parallel to I-5 on the west side between 38th and 48th Streets, just 4 miles southwest of downtown Tacoma, making it an easy access location filled with over 140 specialty stores and several favorite department stores. The mall provides stroller rentals for families with small children who may have a hard time keeping up with the fast pace of their guardians, as well as complimentary wheelchair services to accommodate disabled shoppers.
Inside the mall, you'll find several fine merchants, including family favorites like Old Navy and trendy shoe shops like Journeys. The Gene Juarez Salon and Spa is a great place to schedule a day of pampering and relaxation. Also inside Tacoma Mall you'll find a children's soft play area. This is a fine place to take the opportunity to let your child expend any excess energy.
There are also plenty of eateries within Tacoma Mall. Try a savory sub at Charley's Grilled Sub, a quick Big Mac at McDonald's, or a slice of heaven at Villa Pizza. If you aren't quite ready to fill your stomach, but your energy is lacking, make a quick stop at Starbucks for a bit of caffeine.
If you are into exercise and need a year round indoor track with climate control, but you don't want to pay the price that gyms and general exercise facilities require, join the mall walker program that Tacoma Mall offers. The doors open daily at 7:00am for its health-conscious shoppers, and at 8:30am on Sunday (regular mall hours are 10:00am to 9:00pm Monday through Saturday, and 11:00am to 7:00pm on Sunday, though department store hours may vary). The Tacoma Mall is a grand location to take care of all your shopping needs, and with its proximity to downtown Tacoma, it should be your first consideration in satisfying your itch to get out and about for a fine day of shopping!
