Des Moines, Iowa isn't what pops into the heads of most Americans when they're asked to come up with shopping destinations. However, Des Moines is a large city, certainly by Midwestern standards, and people come from miles around to look for retail products in its shops when the agriculture stores and their horse waterers are no longer enough to meet their needs. If you're coming into Des Moines, perhaps for a vacation or a shopping trip or to buy a home, you might want to visit Jordan Creek Town Center.
Jordan Creek Town Center is one of the largest malls in the area. It has over two million square feet of retail space (think of it like a farm that grows women's shoes and instant water heaters). It is two levels and has a street style design as well as an additional open-air shopping area known as The Village and a outdoor recreation and entertainment area known as The Lake District, which features 3.5 acres of water features, walking trails, a boardwalk, and an amphitheater.
The two anchor department stores of Jordan Creek Town Center are Dillard's at one end Younkers on the other. In between there are over 150 shops, restaurants, and services. Want to get in on the latest recumbent bike Toronto trend? Try Scheel's All Sports. Need a new suit? Brooks Brothers is one of the trendiest male formalwear retailers in the country. Obsessed with the latest teen trend? Visit Hot Topic for clothes and accessories. Want a computer or a DVD player? Try Best Buy. You can find one of everything at Jordan Creek Town Center.
If you get tired of shopping, take a seat at a Toronto patio set and send your spouse off to pick up some food from the food court. Or you can take a sit down meal in one of a number of restaurants, such as Fleming's Prime Steakhouse. Or you can sit down and watch a film at the 20 screen movie theater. Or if you're really tired, book into a room at the attached hotel.
Shopping is an all day commitment for many people, especially if they are driving in from out of town. That's why Jordan Creek Town Center offers many services to its patrons. There are, of course, changing stations where moms and dads can change their baby's cloth diapers, ATMs, and stroller rentals. Where Jordan Creek really goes over and above is in providing a children's play area, high speed internet, and a nursing lounge for breastfeeding mothers.
