  • The newly renovated arcades shipping mall is a place for the entire family. It provides a range of shops that will meet your shopping and leisure needs. However parking space is not very abundant.
  • An average shopping mall. Parking slots are too narrow; carts lie around in parking slots; roads in the mall are not maintained and exit on the east side of the mall has HUGE potholes (almost of the crater size). Good thing about the Mall it is, it is an open air mall and much better than Manda Hill which has still narrower parking slots and always overcrowded and parking is a challenge both while parking in and getting out. Arcades needs a serious maintenance drive and training of guards and workers on customer care, safety and security.
