Top 10 Reasons To Visit North East Mall   by Steve Moreland

North East Mall Hurst, TX has become one of the premier shopping center destinations in the entire Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

In a minute, I'll share with you the top ten reasons to visit North East Mall.

But first, a little bit about it. North East Mall opened its doors in 1971 with under 100 stores. As the Mid-Cities area grew, so did North East Mall.

An expansion in 2000, brought the mall's total square feet to 1,662,000.

It is easy to reach North East Mall as it is at the southeast corner of Airport Freeway (121) and Northeast Loop 820 in Hurst, only 10 minutes west of DFW International Airport.

So why should you make a special trip to visit North East Mall? Here is our countdown of the top 10 reasons:

#10: Two Unique Restaurants. In addition to 18 other food/snack establishments, North East boasts two restaurants not found at any other mall - Carrabba's Italian Grill and R.J. Gator's.

#9: Convenient To NE Tarrant County And West Dallas County. I live in the Mid-Cities, so I can get there in only a few minutes. But it's worth the trip from anywhere in DFW.

#8: Sam Goody Music Store. Even though most Sam Goody stores have closed, you can still experience the excitement of visiting a music store in person.

#7: Everything I Need In A Mall Is Right There. With 162 merchants, there's plenty of variety for everyone.

#6: State Of The Art Theater. Rave Motion Picture Theaters boasts 18 screens, so you're sure to find a movie to your liking.

#5: It's Huge! By pure square footage, it's the largest mall in the Dallas-Fort Worth area - 1,662,000 square feet. When you visit North East Mall, make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

#4: 47 Perimeter Stores. With The Shops at North East and other perimeter stores, there are 209 merchants to choose from!

#3: Six Great Anchor Stores. Dillard's, Foley's(changing to Macy's soon), JCPenney, Nordstrom, Sak's Fifth Avenue, & Sears.

#2: Lots Of Covered Parking. If it's hot, you can park your car in the shade. If one of those Texas thunderstorms hit, you're protected from the weather.

And the #1 reason to visit NorthEast Mall...

Watch The Security Officers Drive Segway® Human Transports. If you haven't seen them, Segways are those self-balancing, electric personal transportation devices where you stand with the wheels to either side of you, not in tandem like a scooter.

North East Mall Hurst Texas (sometimes spelled Northeast Mall) is open Monday - Saturday, 10:00AM-9:00PM and Sunday, 12:00 - 6:00PM.
