I have no doubt it is one of the most well-designed shopping centers in the States. A medium-sized, wonderful mall that is great for relaxing and shopping. It's a great combination of famous, luxury brands and small local shops. The greatest thing about Stanford Shopping...More

This is the place to go if you love upscale shopping. They even have an American Girl Doll store and Cafe for your little ones( or big ones too!) There isn’t a lot of food options, but the shopping is great.

We used to shop at the Stanford Shopping Center...when it was quite unique, smaller and had fewer chains. It is much more upscale and you see lots of families slogging through the mall...parking can be a pain.

Stanford Shopping Center is a medium to high-end shopping center. Lots of stores, lots of parking lots, so easy to lose your car.
