Each store has their own unique features, as they each know how to “pull” you in. The décor and fun merchandise is sure to entice you. Our family had to make a swing into the Microsoft Store and then, right across the hall; onto the Apple Store. Here we all checked out the new tablets and were reminded how quickly technology changes. These two stores offer opportunity for great hands on experiences, with knowledgeable salespeople nearby. Note: Plan a minimum of 30 minutes in each store.
With more than 4.2 million square feet to explore, the Mall of America is a destination in itself. The Build A Bear Store is another popular destination for families. Kids of all ages were designing and building their own bears. Hollister, another popular store for teens and young adults, was hopping with long lines at their registers, as families were gearing up for a change of seasons.
Brookstone is one of our family favorites. There is always a new gadget that we all need to check out!
