Anytime a weekend rolls around in Toronto, residents almost always get the ‘Buffalo bug’ with its chief symptom being an unexplained need to drive down to the border to do a little Buffalo shopping south of the border.
With optimal prices and not as many taxes, U.S. shopping is always an attractive option and Buffalo’s Walden Galleria (One Walden Galleria, Buffalo NY) is one of the most popular shop-til-you-drop destinations.
The Walden Galleria features two-level shopping with over 200 stores, 11 sit-down restaurants and an international food court. If you need to keep the kids entertained, there is also a movie theater available. The mall comprises more than 1,600,000 square feet of retail space. Anchor stories include Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods, DSW Shoe Warehouse, JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, H&M, Macy’s, Old Navy, and Sears.
Walden Galleria initially featured national chains JCPenney and Sears when it first opened in 1989. The most recent upgrade to the center included a $60 million renovation between 2006 and 2008 which added several new tenants as well as the aforementioned theater.
