What is a mall but a collection of stores? Sure, some have nicer skylights, others better gift-wrapping services. But the real key to mall greatness is great stores, and by that measure, Beachwood Place is hands-down the winner. Here you've got Nordstrom and Guess, Pottery Barn and Saks Fifth Avenue, not to mention Papyrus, BCBG Max Azria, and Ticknor's. Nothing against the Gap, but every mall has one. Beachwood Place has so much more.
