Glenbrook Square Shopping Mall: Glenbrook Square
With over 175 stores and 12 restaurants, Glenbrook Square bills itself as the largest mall in Indiana and the "only enclosed super regional shopping center within 100 miles"! Just about any type of store you could want is here. The mall is anchored by 3 department stores: Sears, Macys, and J.C. Penney. You can shop at such stores as H&M, Build-a-Bear, Banana Republic, B Moss, Archievers, and many more. And coming fall of 2007, the Fort's second Barnes & Noble. The food court is on the lower level and has restaurants ranging from Burger King to Sbarros, to Subway and Arbys. And more! Unfortunately, the only sit-down restaurants in the mall are T.G.I.Fridays near one of the Sears mall entrances and a Red Robin hidden down a hallway next to Macys. However, you can find about any restaurant you want near the mall on Coliseum, Coldwater, or Lima Roads.
With all the different hallways it's easy to get lost here, especially near the foodcourt where you have three main paths branching off one spot and one section that has 2 floors while the rest of the mall only has one. Basically, the mall is one large square with a few other hallways branching of. Directories are sprinkled about and you can get a brochure/map in several spots. Recently, the mall took out the nice park-like setting in the food court and instead installed a double decker carousel (that costs money to ride). The didn't get rid of any seating but the nice apple orchard ambience that the food court used to have is completely gone now. It's just one big open seating area with a carousel in the middle.
To get there from the south take U.S. 27 north. The mall will be on the right when the road widens to 3 northbound lanes. From I-69 take either the U.S. 27 south exit or the Coldwater Rd. South exit. U.S. 27/Lima Rd. is easier.

This store is an urban, sort of Southern-style, store. The owners are immigrants from Africa, and they have some very interesting styles.
What to buy: The alligator-skin shoes (probably imitation alligator, since they are not $1000 per shoe) are probably their most unique products, although they have various other styles of dress shoes and clothes.
What to pay: Somewhere around $50.
