Accommodating residents and visitors alike, Muncie-Delaware County has attracted and encouraged a diversity of quality shopping opportunities from one side of the county to the other.
The dominant retail hub in Delaware County is the 655,000-square-foot Muncie Mall, located on Muncie’s northeast side. It offers a wide variety of retail stores to meet every shopper’s needs. Anchored by Elder-Beerman, JC Penney, Macy’s, and Sears, Muncie Mall features more than 70 additional stores. Since shopping can work up an appetite, Muncie Mall has a wide range of dining options, from a quick snack to a buffet to fine dining.
Dedicated to promoting good health in the community, Muncie Mall opens its doors to walkers at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday for visitors to walk, talk and window-shop. (Three complete rotations around the perimeter of the mall equals two miles.)
Not much of a walker? The mall’s Kerasotes Showplace 12 offers first-run movies—a great opportunity to sit down, relax and be entertained.
