List of Metro Detroit Shopping Malls and Centers

Shopping Malls

By

The Metro Detroit Area is home to many malls. In fact, one of the nation's first regional shopping centers was developed in Southfield. Given that the automobile was a factor in the exodus of people from the city to the suburbs, it should come as no surprise that the Motor City played a part in perfecting suburban sprawl. By conscious design, the shopping mall was the new community/cultural center.
