Essex, Middle River and White Marsh all have thriving business communities, thanks in part to an active Chamber of Commerce and involved business owners and residents.
In the downtown area, one can find anything from quaint gift shops and antique stores to all-purpose marts and professional service providers.
The focal point, however, is the White Marsh Mall in Baltimore. The largest regional mall in the Baltimore area, it has five anchor stores, 190 specialty shops and numerous restaurants, all in 1.4 million square feet of space.
Across the street from the mall, shoppers can take a walk outside and continue shopping at the Avenue at White Marsh. You can continue shopping for clothes, home and office items, make-up and fragrances or take the afternoon off and watch a movie at the state-of-the-art 16-screen movie theatre. Spending the day at the Avenue at White Marsh will allow you take a stroll outside while doing your everyday or holiday shopping.
