Jamestown Mall is "Open for Business"

No matter what's being said about Jamestown Mall, there's still a reason to check it out with several shops still open.

A few members of the recently visited Jamestown Mall to check out the stores, to eat lunch at O'Pesky's Pub & Grill and to visit one of our newest members, Frank Marsala with Central States Liquidation, who had just leased the lower level of the old Dillard's Store. We were pleasantly surprised to find that about 30 stores occupied the mall and the mall itself was clean and attractive.

The owners/managers who were there that day were excited to talk to us about their products and their services. Many of the them said they just wanted people to know that Jamestown Mall is "open for business" and "they are ready to serve their customers."

No, it's not the mall we remember from years ago. But check it out, you may be as surprised as we were to see what the mall's friendly entrepreneurs and established businesses have to offer.

Its nice to actually see someone post something positive about Jamestown Mall, I'm a resident of Florissant & I grew up in one of the neighborhoods near the mall. Its not a bad place at all despite what some people think, Its only concern is its LOCATION. Jamestown is one of the only St. Louis based malls thats in a residential area vs other ones located on the side of a interstate. At the time when it opened in the 70s through the early 2000s it bought in pretty good business, but when other shopping centers in the area such as Cross Keys was rebuilt, a lot of their business went there. If Jamestown took on ideas like St. Louis Mills and featured stores and attractions that other area malls didn't have, for example, they have the only JC Penny outlet in the area and people come from other areas of Missouri and Illinois just to go to that store. It might also help if their management group did a better job and advertise their tennant's shops as they use to do letting the public know that they're still open, it could lead to a new begining. As long as it remains open, there's hope for it. Its always been a beautiful place and I would hate to see it close.
