Leopard-print belted coats and stylish hats are just a few of this fall’s must-haves. South Sound shoppers can find the season’s latest trends and much more at Tacoma Mall. Those with a taste for the finer things will be delighted by the most recent additions to the mall’s collection. Already boasting an impressive array of high-end stores, this Simon Mall welcomed White House Black Market, Lush Cosmetics and Michael Kors earlier this summer.

These additions were made with shoppers in mind. “We listen to our customers and are always looking for ways to improve their experience in our mall,” says Sarah Bonds, director of marketing for Tacoma Mall. A shopping staple for those in the greater South Sound, Tacoma Mall has not always been considered destination shopping. In the past, shoppers with a desire for name-brand designers have flocked to Pacific Place in downtown Seattle or the Eastside’s Bellevue Square. Tacoma was not on the radar. While there is something to be said for shopping in a sleek, downtown metropolis, it often comes with a price of its own; think gas and parking complications. Centrally located with ample parking, Tacoma is a more convenient option for South Sound residents, offering an attractive mix of high-end and more affordable selections.

Adding truth to its slogan “More Choices,” Tacoma Mall is expanding its repertoire with new dining options aimed at improving the shopper’s experience. Bonds hinted at three possible new standalone establishments. “Similar to BJ’s, they will give our shoppers a place to relax,” says Bonds. From high-end specialty stores full of the season’s latest trends to fantastic dining options just steps away, Tacoma Mall is now the South Sound’s hottest shopping destination.
