Morgantown Mall: shop 'til ya' drop
Morgantown Mall has about 70 stores and 5 eateries. Many of the stores are aimed at young adult clothing (probably because Morgantown is a university town).
The anchor stores are: Sear's, Waldenbooks, Aeropostale, Gadzooks, Hibbett, Penney's, Hallmark, PayLess, Victoria's Secret.
Like most malls, this one provides special events in the way of mall-wide sales or double coupon days or in-the-mall entertainment, and holiday visits from Santa and the Easter Bunny.
There are also beauty salons and photographers.
There is a multiple-screen movie theater next door to the mall.
My wife requires at least one mall day for every three days of vacation. Morgantown Mall was that day for us.
