We stopped in to take a break from the hot sun with our one year old. Nice mall, clean and lots of shopping options. Although bathrooms are not in the best locations.

The Empire Mall is well-maintained and has a healthy amount of stores. Parking is plentiful - this is a good place to spend an afternoon. There are quite a few good options in the food court.
