Wow to Westfield, the favorite among readers as the best mall in Bergen. It’s the biggest by far, but also a hub of activity not only to local residents, but to shoppers for miles around. Shoppers will find it difficult to experience the mall in a single day, for there are hundreds of high-end department stores, specialty boutiques and restaurants – something for everyone at a variety of price points to meet diverse budgets. Whether you fancy Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom, Lord and Taylor or Macy’s or JCPenney, you can’t miss.
Fairly new to the GSP retail scene is the ground-breaking Uniqlo, a Japanese apparel company that celebrates color in all its styles. You’ll want the jeans and leggings in every color. Movie buffs also love AMC Garden State 16 and enjoy top-grade dining at The Capital Grille, Grand Lux Café, or Joe’s American Bar & Grill. Of course, the kids and teens love burgers, milkshakes and music at Johnny Rockets.
