Temple Square The large anchors and draw to city creek center are Macy's, Nordstroms and the Mormon church just to name a few. It is currently the only mall scheduled to open in 2012.
As everyone celebrates City Creek Centers grand opening, I sit and wonder what will happen to Trolley Square and the Gateway all located downtown? Will they survive this massive shopping center? Will I be visiting City Creek Center? I doubt it. I am centrally located between two other great malls Fashion Place Mall (Murray Utah) and South Towne Center/ Mall (Sandy Utah). Pretty much the same stores, I think I'll be heading there next time I need something new. I bet the crowds will be small and I will probably find all the newest fashions, in my size! So go ahead everyone else head down to City Creek Center.......
