Lets see.. what to say about a Mall. Basically, Providence Place mall doesn't differ from most malls. It's more of an upscale mall, with upscale prices. There are 3 floors to the mall, as well as a huge, but very poorly designed parking garage.
Here's a (hopefully) fairly comprehensive list of the stores in the mall. For more info and for a better list of stores, I'd go to their website www.providenceplace.com
The big stores are Lord & Taylors, Filenes, Nordstroms, Borders Bookstore, Bed & Bath & Beyond, and Old Navy.
For clothing stores include The Gap, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Guess, Bebe, Charlotte Russe, Abercrombie & Fitch, Delia's, Eddie Bauer, Sketchers, Steve Madden, Hot topic, Wilsons leather, JCrew, JJill, American Eagle, and every variety of "foot locker" store, plus more I can't really remember!
There are several other specialty stores like crate n barrel, restoration hardware, ross simons jewlers (actually there are several jewlery stores), the museum shop, swarofski crystal, oop!, bang & olufsen, williams sonoma, lens crafters, etc. Too many to list!
There are probably about 10 different places you can buy a cellular phone in the mall.. (a few too many if you ask me)
They have at least one hair salon (Dellaria's), and several body shops (aveda, bath and body works, etc).
There is a food court (subway, johnny rockets, latin cafe, ben 'n jerry's ice cream, a cookie store, pizzeria regina, chinese restaurant, japanese restaurant, and a newsstand).
They have an IMAX theater and a 16 screen Hoyt's movie theater.
For full service restaurants, they have Dave & Busters, The Cheesecake Factory, Hops Brewery, Joes American Bar & grill, Napa Valley Grille, Fire & Ice, and Pizzeria Uno's.
Parking is NOT free. With a $10 purchase stores will stamp your parking ticket making the cost $1 for 3 hours. The price goes up from there.
