Shop Local - Hilltop Mall + Giveaway (Two $50 Mall Gift Cards!)
Written by Leslie Means

Who doesn’t love the mall?  I mean, really.  Pretty sure if I could go back in time to my early teenage years where I wandered the halls aimlessly while slurping a coke, crushing on the boys and then eating massive amounts of popcorn at the mall theater… I would.

Come on.  Tell me you did that too?

Today, I head to the mall with my girls when we need a little outing.  We always hit up our favorite snack shop and then browse the stores.  What is your favorite mall memory as a kid?

Here’s a few details about the mall in our view – The Hilltop Mall!  Please note the extended holiday hours starting December 3rd!  

  • The mall has over 35 stores and employs over 200 workers.
  • Over 12 local area businesses are operating at Hilltop Mall. These businesses are
    • Buckle – headquartered in Kearney !
