Really like this mall. The stores in here are really affordable -- unlike the American and the Grove and they have some really cool and neat shops too. I love the Victoria Secret's there. They are remodeling, so I think that in a few months this place is going to rock! I can't believe though that two shopping malls are so close to each other. I guess the American does dominate this place but I am more of a down-to-earth girl.
Cool Cool – This mall is nice, very spacious, adequate parking, but NO Auntie Anne's pretzels. That was probably the biggest disappointment. I enjoyed the multiple sales and selection of stores and brands. Be sure to try the Raspberry Lemonade at Cinnabon...delicious new add to their menu.
Waste of Space – If you really want to shop, this is not the mall to be at. This mall is owned by General Growth Properties and they haven't seriously remodeled the property for quite some time. The mall appears to primarily cater to women, children and teenagers. The mall is depressing, and when you compare it to other premium malls such as South Coast Plaza, and the Beverly Center, you will never want to go to the Glendale Galleria. I suppose the mall serves a limited purpose, but for people that want to seriously shop I suggest going elsewhere to the other malls I mentioned. The Macy's is a converted Broadway store that caters to juveniles. The Nordstrom has many levels and has a limited selection and even fewer options for Men. They used to have a Robinson May, but when they were bought out by Macy's they closed that and leased out the space to Target (which does not increase the prestige of the mall). Other notable stores are a dliuted Hugo Boss store, and an Oakley store.
The first real "mega" mall in LA – I have to say I do most of my shopping online these days. I very rarely walk into department stores or malls. The only real mall I venture into is the Galleria. I don't even do the Eagle Rock Plaza which is closer to my home. Even though the little shops change up every now and then, I can always count on the larger stores to be there when I need them. Last night, case in point, I'm getting things ready for my sister's 50th birthday party and gathering last minute items. I needed See's candy for the party favors, so I headed to the Galleria. I was parked, in the mall, buying candy, and out of the building in less than 20 minutes. I didn't have to hunt for the store, as it's still in the same place it's been in for 20 years. The staff...as always, was extremely pleasant and accommodating when I ordered a one-pound box hand-packed. Yes, I knew it would weigh more than a pound...yes, I'll pay the extra. Even though I don't frequent it as much as I did 20 years (or even 2 years) ago, it's still the staple mall in my local shopping milieu.
Huge!! – Gosh, this mall is huge! It's in a kind of suburban area, so you'll really be surprised. I went here to go prom dress shopping and they had so many choices. From the department stores, like Macy's and Nordstroms, to one of a kind boutiques and smaller chain stores. I couldn't even choose! Great place, I love coming here.
Avoid on Saturday afternoons – This mall has a wide variety of shops to choose from, and a beautiful atmosphere within which to shop, but it gets CRAZY crowded on weekends. Sometimes the high school crowd can ruin the ambiance, but all in all it's an enjoyable shoppingn experience.
Reliable department stores and mall chains in a comfortable suburban setting. – In Short
Marble floors, wide walkways, high ceilings and plenty of foliage create a pleasant atmosphere for both casual browsers and dedicated shoppers. Retailers include a mixture of mid-range shops (Ann Taylor, Brookstone) and less expensive stores (Charlotte Russe, Payless Shoe Source). Also on hand are service chains (Lens Crafters, Carlton Hair International) and a large selection of eateries (both sit-down restaurants and food-court options).
Pretty great...if you have the time and patience – If you want a wide variety of stores then the Galleria has you covered. Everything from Hot Topic to Guess and lots of stuff in between.
Out of all the malls I have been to in Socal this is one of my top choices and I usually end up here because its just blocks away from my home.
Parking...or lack there of...can be quite a chore on the weekends. During the weekdays before 6 or so it's really not bad at all. There are alot of entrances though to remember where you came in.
Some stores are very crowded and have long lines while others deal with the crowds better and have shorter lines because of it.
I personally think that layout is kind of wacky with little offshoots in a couple places that hide some decent stores.
The security officers are pretty friendly and helpful if you need to find a location.
I'd say go during the day on a weekday to avoid lines and parking issues.
If you live close by then don't miss it but if I lived closer I would prefer going to the South Coast Plaza, a much nicer mall if you ask me.
A Great Mall in Southern California – The Glendale Galleria is one of the best malls in Southern California. It has just about everything with just about every imaginable store in this mall. If you stop and look in every store, it can take you the whole day to go through the entire mall. I have never been disappointed with the Glendale Galleria.
The parking can be a bit of a nightmare, especially on weekends. You need to remember what parking structure you parked in and what entrance or store you entered through. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with the mall, it can be a little bit of a hunt to fine where you parked your car.
Overall, I would have to say, I wish there were malls like Glendale Galleria. The residents that live in or near Glendale should feel lucky to have such a special mall like they have.
Endless shopping – This mall has practically every store you want to visit. It is convinient and during end of season sales, you will find the best bargains in town.
