You can use your jacksonville restaurant coupons in these shopping centers. Here are five great places you can shop in Jacksonville.


Gateway Town Center

Jacksonville’s Gateway Town Center is the oldest mall in the city but is no doubt as fun and exciting as other contemporary malls. Gateway Town Center is found at 5184 Norwood Ave. and features a mixture of retail boutiques, like Footlocker and Ashley Stewart, and non-retail offices such as the War on Poverty office and some health care providers. The Gateway Town Center is open from 10 AMa.m. to 9 PM. Monday through Saturday and 12 noon to 6 PM on Sunday.

St. Johns Town Center

St. Johns Town Center is the newest and trendiest shopping destination in the city. It prides itself with its offer of a unique shopping experience with its open-air plaza. The plaza is lined with shopping staples like Dillard’s, Barnes & Noble, Target and restaurants. Another one of the town center’s edge would be its Anthropologie store which is inspired by flea market shopping, antique shops and exotic estate sales. St. Johns Town Center is open from 10 AM to 9 PM Monday through Saturday and 11 AM to 6 PM on Sundays.

The Jacksonville Landing

The Jacksonville Landing is noted for its u-shape. It has a festival marketplace along the St. Johns River and prides itself in its collection of 40 stores and restaurants including great night life hangouts. This mall also has a central courtyard decorated with a fountain which is sure to add a refreshing atmosphere for those warm afternoon strolls. The courtyard also hosts several concerts and special events. The mall is open at 10 AM to 8 PM Monday through Thursday, 10 AM to 9 PM on Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 5:30 PM on Sundays. Its nightclubs and bars are open much later into the night.

Regency Square Mall

On 9501 Arlington Expressway stands the Regency Square Mall. This mall is home to more than 170 shops and is anchored by several big names like Sears, Belk, JC Penney and Dillard’s. While grownups enjoy shopping and hanging out, the kids will love riding on the mall’s own kiddie train. Movie buffs and film goers will love to know that Regency Square Mall features its own AMC 24-screen megaplex for the ultimate movie experience. Mall hours are from 10 AM to 9 PM for Monday through Saturday and from noon until 6 PM on Sundays.

River City Marketplace

Jacksonville’s largest shopping mall, the River City Marketplace, has 70 shops and restaurants including Old Navy, Lowe’s, a Wal-Mart Super Center and a PetsMart. All of these shops stand in an open-air plaza. If you enjoy movies, you’ll love the mall’s 14-screen Hollywood Theaters. River City Marketplace is open from 9 AM until 9PM Monday to Saturday and 11 AM to 7 PM on Sundays.

Jacksonville not only prides itself as being Florida’s largest city, but also proves that it is a great place to look for shopping destinations.
