The Oklahoma City metro area has several options for those wanting an enclosed shopping experience. Here is a list of the Oklahoma City shopping malls, with links more information on each.
50 Penn Place
50 Penn Place bills itself as the "most notable address in Oklahoma City." Located just across from Penn Square Mall in northwest Oklahoma City, 50 Penn Place is certainly one of the more distinctive shopping establishments in the metro. You won't find typical mall stores but instead visit the beautiful 3-story atrium mall for unique shops, food and art galleries.
Located along North May at NW 122nd, Northpark Mall has been in operation for more than 30 years. Though it's not even close to the status of a Penn Square or a Quail Springs, Northpark does have several shops and boutiques of note, as well as one of the metro's bargain movie theaters. Shogun is a popular restaurant choice, as is Rococo, and the mall has several well-known names such as B.C. Clark, Gourmet Gallery, and Gymboree.
Located on the northeast corner of I-40 and Council Road on the west side of the metro, the Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City opened to much fanfare in the summer of 2011, drawing visitors from not only OKC but neighboring states. Shoppers can find bargains at more than 80 name-brand retailers in this outdoor mall, establishments such as Nike, Brooks Brothers, Under Armour, Banana Republic, Gap, Guess, Chico's, Tommy Hilfiger, Jos. A. Bank, Polo Ralph Lauren, Soma, Yankee Candle and many, many more.
Certainly one of Oklahoma City's most popular shopping areas, Penn Square Mall can be a nightmare at the holiday season. But it's also a spacious, comfortable shopping experience. Penn Square has all of the typical mall stores, including the top anchors such as J.C. Penney, Dillard's and Macy's, and the mall has a quality food court and excellent movie theater.
Crossroads Mall in south Oklahoma City, located at the intersection of I-35 and I-240, is no more, at least not as you remember it. Once a prime spot for metro shoppers, Crossroads experienced hardship, with many of the anchor stores such as JC Penney and Macy's leaving. In 2013, it was renamed Plaza Mayor at the Crossroads and the focus shifted toward Hispanic patrons.
Quail Springs is also a highly popular Oklahoma City area mall. Located on the far north side of the metro near Edmond, along the well-traveled Memorial Corridor, Quail Springs is one of the largest in the state. In addition to all of the major stores, it has one of the metro's best movie theaters, the AMC 24.
Can you guess by the name where this one is located? Sooner Mall in Norman, Oklahoma originally opened in 1976 and then underwent an $8 million expansion and remodel in the late 1980s. Operated by General Growth Properties, the same company that runs Quail Springs Mall, it features top national store chains, local shops, a children's play area, multiple restaurants and more.
