Where to Find Shopping Malls in and Around Portland, Oregon

 Chris VR / TripSavvy

Sometimes, you just need to shop or hang out at the mall. Here's a rundown of the Portland area's major malls and shopping centers.

Pioneer Place

Pioneer Place is a downtown mall filled with upscale stores, many of which you can't find elsewhere in Portland. There's also a movie theater on the top floor and a nice food court on the lower level. Look for local restaurants including a sushi bar, cajun grill, and chocolate cafe.

Department/Anchor stores: Forever 21, Apple, and Microsoft are all on site, though Saks 5th Avenue closed its retail store in 2010.

Location:

  • 700 SW Fifth Ave.
  • Downtown Portland
  • (503) 228-5800

Lloyd Center

Lloyd Center is Oregon’s largest mall, featuring an indoor ice skating rink, food court, and movie theater. On a side note, the ice skating rink was the spot where Olympian Tonya Harding trained; Harding, of course, is notorious for her not-so-savory behavior during the Olympic competitions.

Department/Anchor stores: Ross, Macy's, Marshalls.

Location and directions:

Lloyd Center is in the Irvington neighborhood in NE Portland. The address is:

  • 2201 Lloyd Ctr.
  • (503) 282-2511

From downtown take the Burnside, Morrison or Hawthorne bridge across the river and turn left onto Grand Ave. Take Grand all the way to NE Multnomah and turn right. Lloyd Center is five blocks up on the left.

Washington Square Mall

The Washington Square Mall is a huge modern mall with 170 specialty shops and restaurants outside the city of Portland.

It was completely remodeled in 2005 and retains a sense of modern opulence. The mall boasts no fewer than five anchor stores both inside the main structure and outside in a plaza called Washington Square Too. Worth the drive if you're really in the mood for an evening at the mall (especially since the Washington Square Transit Center is right in the mall, so there's no need to drive unless you want to!).

Department/Anchor stores: Nordstrom, Macy's, JC Penney, Dick's Sporting Goods

Location and directions:

Washington Square is located south of downtown Portland. It takes about 15 - 20 minutes to drive there from downtown. Alternatively, bus routes go directly to the mall.

Bridgeport Village

Bridgeport Village describes itself as "an exclusive mix of local, regional and national shops unlike any other shopping experience in Oregon." This is really the case: it's a unique combination of typical mall shops like Crate and Barrel and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Restaurants range from the mundane (California Pizza) to the unique (Native Foods plant-based cuisine).

More significantly, Bridgeport Village also offers fitness programs such as yoga a Lululemon, spas, and a wide range of events such as farmers markets, food fairs, and fashion happenings.

In addition, you can attend cooking demonstrations, tastings, take in an Imax film, or enjoy a first run movie at the 18-screen movie theater.

The " Deals" tab on their website gives you a quick overview of the best deals of the day. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to get there from Portland.
