Meadowood Mall review

Website: Meadowood Mall

BIGMallrat's Rating: 9.5 out of 10

Meadowood Mall in Reno is easily the best shopping center in Northern Nevada.

This enclosed shopping center was developed by the Taubman Company, and shares many similarities to Stoneridge Shopping Center in Pleasanton, CA. However, this center is built for a smaller market and hence, a single story.

Atmosphere

Meadowood Mall features a white and bright atmosphere. Its unique semi-circle design, with a straight corridor leading to Sears, feels open and is a pleasure to stroll. One side of the mall is set on a higher plane than the other, so there are some stairs leading to the center court. Keep your eyes focused on the floor to avoid unexpected falls. Carefully placed ramps do make it wheelchair and scooter-friendly. Nevertheless, the single-story design keeps the center from feeling overwhelming.

Stores

We found a pleasing selection of stores, including many high-end ones. Approximately 80 stores are unique to the Reno area. In addition to Sears, JC Penney, and a large Copeland's Sports Superstore, there are two Macy's (women's on the north side and men's/home on the east side).

Food

A large food court, called the "Palms," can be found near Sears. Although additional sit-down restaurants are grouped around the entrances.

Parking

With a large lot surrounding the shopping center, parking is fairly easy. Even on the busiest of days, a spot will be found without much delay.

Location

Meadowood Mall is located in Reno, Nevada, at the intersection of US-395, McCarran Boulevard and South Virginia Street.
