An increasingly growing trend is the concept of an open-air
mall, where well-known retailers and independent shops alike
are centered around a common area, much like downtown
centers of the past.
Mashpee Commons is for both dining and shopping, featuring
mostly independently owned restaurants and shops, including
Sachs Jewelers, a 4th generation jeweler, and Rustic Marlin,
a home decor store known for its handmade house signs
– owned by a local couple and made right on the Cape.
Larger stores like L.L. Bean and Pottery Barn complement the
trendy boutiques and specialty shops, providing a great mix
of options. Charming restaurants like Siena, Estia Taverna
and Cape Cod Coffee Café can be found throughout the
Commons, so you’re in luck if you work up an appetite while
Wareham Crossing, just over the bridge off the Cranberry
Highway, is an open-air mall that’s home to 45 stores and
restaurants, including top retailers like Old Navy and Target
and outlets like Lowe’s and L.L. Bean. The restaurants within
offer shoppers everything from casual dining to global cuisine.
Over in Hyannis, Cape Cod Mall is the region’s only indoor
shopping center, featuring big box retailers like Dick’s Sporting
Goods and Macy’s, plus other chains like J. Crew, Hollister and
Barnes & Noble. Jersey Mike’s Subs and Five Guys Burgers are
just a few of the eateries you can choose from as you shop.
