Seminole Towne Center

The Seminole Towne Center has welcomed even more tenants to this spacious mall, offering shoppers several new stores to check out this holiday shopping season -- or anytime -- while keeping the mall’s community feel intact.


“We enjoy very good occupancy with several new, unique tenants,” says Larry Scollo, General Manager.


The Seminole Towne Center features more anchor stores than most malls, with Dillard’s, Macy’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, JCPenney, Sears, and Burlington Coat Factory all open for shoppers this holiday season. In all, the mall has about 130 retail locations, including restaurants and the adjacent movie theater.


Then there are new, innovative additions such as Athletic Apex Health Club, a 28,000-square-foot, full-service gym which offers a café with smoothies, child care service, and the area’s only outdoor workout space covered with artificial turf.


If you’re searching for a can’t-miss holiday gift, White Barn Candle, made famous at Bath & Body Works, is now its own brand. The Bath & Body Works store has been fully renovated to give candle shoppers their own great-smelling space with homey wood accents.


Press Start Collectables is also new to Seminole Towne Center. It offers merchandise featuring characters like Batman, Super Mario, Captain America, Yoshi, and many others -- all perfect gifts for that fan on your shopping list.


“They have hard-to-find items, too,” says Larry.


In addition, Victoria’s Secret, The Children’s Place, rue21, Godiva Chocolatier, American Eagle Outfitters, and H&M are just a few of the many longstanding retailers ready to serve holiday shoppers.


And after all that shopping, there are plenty of options at the Seminole Towne Center for drinks, food, or both.


The Winey Wench Pub is a new pirate-themed spot at the mall. You can’t miss it -- it’s a pirate ship right in the middle of the food court, where wine slushies are served, trivia nights are held, and cold beer is always available, Matey.


iSpice is another newcomer to Seminole Towne Center. It serves up fresh ingredients in the food court with exotic flavors in dishes such as chana masala and chicken curry. Poppy Bloom designer popcorn has a new kiosk at the mall, as well, offering visitors yet another culinary treat. With non-GMO corn popped in coconut oil and combined with natural flavorings and spices, it’s another snack choice for hungry shoppers and their children.


Eating options also include Habanero’s Mexican, Cupcake Crazy -- with gourmet cupcakes to go and custom cakes -- and Sushi Heaven, among many others.


“There is also a wide range of things to do here for children and families, such as KidX social events once a month, with an activity hosted by one of our tenant stores,” says Erica Gutierrez, Marketing Director.


Recent KidX events have included a Make-Your-Own Sundae activity and a look behind the scenes at Chick-fil-A. Earlier this year, the mall held a Pirate & Princess Party, and family luau.


Children can also relax in their own play space, drive around on an Animal Rider scooter, hop aboard the mall’s trackless  choo-choo train, or try the kids’ bungee jump located in the food court.


For the holidays, shoppers are treated to the sounds of the season with carolers regularly scheduled to make the shopping atmosphere merry and bright. A tree-lighting ceremony will be held this month for the mall’s two-story Christmas tree, and photos with Santa are available (for both people and pets).


There is ample parking for holiday shopping, too, and stores are ramped-up with staff and inventory to be ready for an influx of guests.
“We look forward to seeing guests here holiday shopping or just checking out our new retailers,” says Larry. “There is always something happening here.”
