Jordan Creek Town Center is a must-visit stop for many as the seasons change and the West Des Moines shopping mall and entertainment center has plenty of changes in store as the leaves start to fall.
The 19-year-old center is nearing 100% capacity and Jordan Creek Town Center general manager Randy Tennison cites a strong metro economy, dedicated consumers, and a one-stop must-see for entertainment and shopping as reasons for Jordan Creek’s constant staying power.
“Jordan Creek is definitely thriving right now. The mall is a great place for people to just come to and hangout,” Tennison said. “We have great restaurants, we have the movie theatre, we have events around the lake so it’s kind of an all-inclusive entertainment location.”
A number of changes in recent months have made the shopping center grow even further in time for the holiday season. Here’s a guide to what’s going on at Jordan Creek Town Center.
Amazon 4-star opening cancelled
Last December, Seattle-based Amazon announced plans to open an Amazon 4-star store at the shopping mall filled with a rotating stock of highly rated products. It even had a spot, ready to take over the former Soft Surroundings space.
Amazon closed 68 of its brick-and-mortar storefronts in March and cancelled proposed store openings to refocus efforts on Whole Foods and other technologies, according to USA Today. The e-commerce giant’s store cancellation included its first Iowa store which planned to open in spring 2022. There are no reported plans to reopen any of the cancelled or closed stores.
