It's often said that the quality of a mall is determined by its department stores. Beachwood has three of the best: Dillard's, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Along with mall staples like the Gap, J.Crew, the Limited, Banana Republic, Guess?, and Brooks Brothers, Beachwood Place also has specialty shops you'd normally have to travel to New York to find, including BCBG Max Azaria and Swarovski, as well as exclusive local product like Nabici Collection. Indeed, Beachwood is more of a social gathering spot for moneyed InStyle
readers. When The New York Times
ran an article in May about the shopping habits of consumers of luxury goods, they reported from Beachwood Place. Now that's class.
