Convenient – The West End Mall is the "in" place to shop, and people watch. With the BarberShop II for your cuts to Maxway for your $1.00 days; the Historial Houses for a stroll and the coming Beltline to pull it all together...I want to open a business in the West End...soon.
West End doesn't lure visitors to its frill-free confines with a roster of high-end boutiques, but instead with solid, simple staples. – In Short
The Mall doesn't have anchor stores (except Foot Locker for the sneaker fetishee) or even a food court, but what it does offer from its convenient positioning in downtown's shadow is history and a strong communal feel. For years the place has been the spot for nearby HBCU students in need of a new CD (Sound Shop), a few toiletries (Maxway) or a fresh face for the big party (Dendera Cosmetics). Afro Books is locally renowned for its reasonably-priced hardbacks. And even without your standard fast food palace, Fish in the Pocket and American Deli have become a comfortable staple for their inexpensive hot wings.
So cultured – What I like most about this mall is the fact that it is so representative of the students at the nearby historically black colleges and university nearby. There are flags from each school adorning the walls in the mall and the whole flavor of the mall reflects everything the students are trying to accomplish. There's an EXCELLENT fish market, a music store with a great selection of past and present music. PLUS: There's a Maxway, which helps furnish those bare dormrooms.
