9. Weberstown Mall
This mall has a JCPenney with Sephora in it and that is all you need to know. We’re kidding, of course. But it’s always good to know where the nearest Sephora is. They also have Forever 21, Bath and Body Works and Victoria’s Secret.
10. Sherwood Mall
Sherwood mall is the other mall in town. It’s the one with the food court. So if you wanna grab some grub with your besties to catch up, this is the mall to do it in. Need to hit up Claire’s for some earrings or get a new iPad at Best Buy? Sherwood Mall has you covered.
