Penn Square Mall
BEWARE WHEN GOING TO THIS MALL. WOULD BE SMART TO CARRY A WEAPON ON YOU. Don't depend on anyone else to help you out here. Crime continues to get worse at this place and the mall does nothing to try to prevent it and just tries to cover it up to keep the shoppers coming in. The security team is a joke. The mall has a security tower that I have never seen used...and up until lately I frequented this place 1-3 times a week. I observe the security basically just driving in circles around the mall. They do not observe the safety of others at all. And 1-2 security cars for this mall is not near enough. How many muggings, rapes and abductions need to occur for management to take the crime around this place seriously. I work at a large corporation near the mall and after hearing about the latest attack, a large group of coworkers and myself decided today to boycott this place and spend our money at a place that cares about the safety of their customers. I realize crime occurs everywhere but it would be easy for a large business like this to take a few simple steps to add to the security for the customers. If the criminals knew there were actually eyes on them they may not attempt anything there anymore. But they never get caught because nobody is paying attention so why stop with the attacks. It is a shame because there are quite a few good stores in this mall. My advice...find another place for your shopping needs.
It's the only mall to visit in OKC if you're not a rampant kid. Quail Springs is too obsenely crazy and Penn has better stuff. And it's on Northwest Expressway. Check out Classen Grille on one end, for breakfast. A ways down NW Expressway (on the way to Super Target) is Texture Salon - get your hair cut/colored by Anastasia there. Come back through and stop across from the hospital for lunch at the diner (really!). Spend the rest of the day shopping and then see a movie.
