Somerset Collection

One of my favourite malls to shop in is Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan. I used to think of it as my own special shopping secret, but in the past few years several co workers and friends have made the Somerset connection. Having added Somerset North to the mall over 10 years ago, it really is one stop shopping for anything you could possibly need.
Anchor department stores include; Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th Avenue, and Macy’s. Speciality stores include your everyday shops like Fossil, Express, Victoria Secret and Bath and Body Works in addition to some harder to find retailers like Anthropologie. There are several restaurants to eat at. My favourite is California Pizza Kitchen. Out of all the shopping I do in the States, this is the only mall I go to with a CPK and to only be able to eat there once a year is torture but well worth waiting for. I highly recommend the Santa Fe Chicken pizza or the California Club with avocado.
Somerset first started off as a small mall with some very high end exclusive shops. This was expanded later on to include J. Crew, Armani Exchange, Crate and Barrel, Tiffanys and Barney’s New York to name a few. It is now called Somerset South, with no shortage of luxury retailers to choose from. Lululemon is the most recent addition to Somerset South. Judging from the amount of Lulu bags I saw last time I was there, our American counterparts love Lulu as much as we do. Somerset North is where you’ll find all the stores your used to seeing in everyday America malls. The highlight of the mall is the moving walkway over Big Beaver Road that connects Somerset South and North. From Gucci to American Eagle, there is something to be found at Somerset Collection for everyone. My only complaint is that I don’t live closer!
