    Lisa i think we are nearer to each other than you think.:p015: I love Reading and also like Watford. In High Wycombe where i live a new Mall (sort of) has opened. Much better shops than we had but still not Reading.

    Kierland Commons (Scottsdale) probably is the closest open air shopping center. It's designed to be more like an old style downtown. I like the Barnes & Noble, Restoration Hardware and Crate & Barrel stores, but don't shop there very often. It's too hot to wander outdoors six months of the year!

    Nearest enclosed mall is a toss-up: Scottsdale Fashion Square is farther south, Paradise Valley Mall (northeast Phoenix) is farther west. About the same distance. I tend to avoid both of them except when necessary, although I do walk at PV Mall before or after work sometimes, depending on my schedule. It's designed nicely for that!

    I'm afraid I'm not much of a shopper. Too time consuming!

    Generally, our town centre has everything you need. It's not big and fancy though, it has the pyramids (a shopping centre) and then outdoor paved style shops. Then there is the market (if you want some knock-off 'Grada' or ''G&D" bags.... LOL)

    If I'm going shopping for clothes, I try and go to liverpool because they have a nicer selection of shops, and also a starbucks. Near christmas we go to the trafford centre for christmas shopping.

    High Wycombe is about 25 minutes for me :p015:

    I have seen the new mall but didn't have time to stop as we were just running into the town to pick up our Wii Fit as it was the only store that had one. :D
