It really is a great mall. I love it! They have a cinema (the second of my beloved Cineworld) with ten screens. They have loads of restaurants. They have three coffee shops. They have clothes and accessories and gifts and all kinds of stuff! It actually feels like a mall back home... which I say is good. It means I can go to see a few films in a day, and have places to go in between to drink or shop or study, without having to go outside in the rain and wind and cold! Hurrah!
They had a big opening weekend party, and I went down on that very first Thursday night. I took some photos, and some video-- they had a stage set up for local groups to perfom, and lucky me, the Red Hot Chili Pipers were there! It was too cool, really. So the next time you need to do some shopping, come to Aberdeen! The train station is on one side, and the bus station on the other... you don't even have to go outdoors! Pretty awesome.
