At 41,122 square meters, Apple Blossom Mall was built in 1982 on the south side of Winchester. A 2007 renovation undertaken by The Simon Property Group, in concert with original New England Development entrepreneurs, re-defined an already-popular space favored by shoppers. Among enhancements added when the mall was refurbished was the addition of the Apple Blossom 12 Carmike Cinemas, but what drives traffic most of all is the 90+ anchor and in-line retail store selection that delights patrons of every age and lifestyle.
The aforementioned Apple Blossom 12 Carmike Cinemas - plus the popular national restaurant chain Buca di Beppo attracts those seeking entertainment. Apple Blossom attracts visitors from Virginia and the West Virginia panhandle so shoppers from multiple regions flock to Winchester just for the experience. Apple Blossom Mall, adjacent to Interstate 81 at Route 50 (take exit 313B), can be found at 1850 Apple Blossom Drive, Winchester, VA, 22601-5136.
The Apple Blossom Mall is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Renovations undertaken in 2012 dramatically enhanced the way space was refurbished and allocated within the one-story facility sprawling across the aforementioned 41,122 square meters. With no elevators or escalators to interrupt the flow of spending, Apple Blossom Mall also manages to avoid experiencing equipment malfunctions that can strand shoppers from floor to floor. Three anchors and 80 retail shops keep families on the go, and entertaining kids is a priority for Simon Properties, the mall’s developer. The Apple Blossom indoor play zone is popular with parents eager to let youngsters blow off steam. But it’s not just the play area that intrigues mall fans most: Simon Kidgits Club’s regularly-scheduled educational and entertainment events throughout the year turn the mall into a mini-mecca for parents encouraging their child’s development whilst giving grownups a satisfying shopping experience.
