King of Prussia Court & Plaza Tips (5)

King of Prussia Court & Plaza: Shopper's Paradise

Oh My Gosh! What can I say. Coming from Los Angeles which has countless malls and places to shop, this mall made my jaw drop.

Eight major department stores and 365 shops, including Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's, Louis Vuitton, Nordstroms and Tiffany's; 40 restaurants from Cheesecake Factory to Morton's.

At Christmastime King of Prussia mall has the most SPECTACULAR visit with Santa I have ever seen. Sitting below a huge tree is a large carousel with images of Valley Forge on the diaorama. Santa sits on a gold and red throne. Words cannot do this justice.

What to buy Check out April Cornell, the really cool Urban Trader and at Christmastime look for Christmas on the Mall.
I like Coldwater Creek, too.

Auntie Anne's has the best soft pretzels

What to pay Oh boy, that is a loaded question

King Of Prussia Court and Plaza: Second Largest Mall in the U.S.

Ok.. I have been to many malls including the Mall of America, which is the largest in the U.S. But, right here in Philadelphia, we have what has been rated as the second largest mall in America and by far Philly's most popular. No.. it does not have an indoor amusement park..and no rollercoaster rides etc.. but, it does have enough stores to satisfy even the most passionate of shoppers.

There are 8 anchors and include Bloomingdale's, J.C.Penney, Macy's, Sears, Strawbridges, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Lord and Taylor.

365 specialty stores. 35 restaurants and eateries. Almost 3 million square feet of prime retail space.

The mall was established in 1959 but by 1967, King of Prussia Plaza included both open and enclosed mall areas, 1.3 million square feet of leasable space and some 140 stores offering a full range of retail merchandise and services. A true regional shopping center. In the late 1970's, plans were developed for an adjacent mall, the King of Prussia Plaza had always been directed toward a broad audience, The Court was to appeal to the more affluent, fashion-minded shopper.

Opening in 1981, The Court at King of Prussia was an architectural delight. Fanning out around the new Bloomingdale's, the two-level structure made maximum use of natural light through continuous clear-story skylights. Fountain courts graced the entrances of each department store. And full-size trees and plants created an inviting, natural feel.

Starting in 1995 and continuing through 1996, both The Plaza & The Court at King of Prussia underwent an extensive $180 million renovation and expansion. The most significant additions were important new names like Nordstrom, Niemann Marcus and Lord & Taylor, not to mention a list of 100 new high-end specialty shops that reads like a "Who's Who" of retail.

King of Prussia Court & Plaza: Like shopping...?

Like shopping, then you will just LOVE King of Prussia, its arguably the biggest mall on the east coast of America. We spent a day there, and never made it around to all the shops, as there were to many. I would also recommend going during sale times, when they have lots of good reductions, and you cal pick up fantastic bargains!

What to buy I got really cheap Jeans and gorgeous boots. I got some Polo jeans for about $19 and Levi for about $20.

King of Prussia Court & Plaza: ehhh

KOP is a huge mall. they have select stores that you cant find just anywhere, such as versace or juicy couture. most stores though are just average stores you can find at your mall at home. the department stores are nice, if you have a lot of money. expect to pay high prices because a lot of the stores are designer labels. if you like that stuff, come out and give KOP a shot, but otherwise a local mall should do you the same.

What to pay average - very very very high
