The Loop - More retail therapy

The Loop is a brand new shopping, dining and leisure complex just nearing completion on John Young Parkway.

This 4,400 square foot complex is situated at 3250 North John Young Parkway, Kissimmee/Orlando, FL 34741 it has many of the stores you come to expect in a typical Florida mall, but still being new, it is relatively quiet. The Loop is at the corner of John Young and Osceola Parkways.

We visited it mid Sept 05 and most of the stores where either open or nearing completion. There are a good few dining options as well and a 16 screen cinema is due to open in the next few months too.

The cinema is a godsend to drop dad and the kids at while you take your time checking out the stores.

General store times are from 10am to 9.30 pm Mon through Sat, and 11am through 6pm on Sundays. The restaurants, cinema and some stores will stay open longer, so no need to rush round.

There is a huge Michael’s store. Here you can get all sorts of great arts and crafts things and the assortment of silk flowers and decorative items is fantastic. Another great home store is Kirkland’s, there is one at Mall at Millenia, but with this one being much closer to home, it makes it easy to just nip in and have a browse. I am constantly buying little bits and pieces to add to our Florida home, but always manage to find new and unusual things to bring home for myself and as gifts too.

Add to this a good assortment of clothes stores such as Old Navy, Ross, Dress Barn and Famous Footwear and you are looking at spending a fortune and a good few hours here. But don’t worry there are plenty of eateries and coffe stops along the way to help you keep your strength up for all that shopping.

Store listing:

  • Ross
  • Pier I
  • Bed Bath & Beyond
  • Sports Authority
  • Old Navy

As with all the Florida malls we have visited there is excellent parking and facilities. So if you are in need of some more retail therapy, now’s your chance to get some. As if all this wasn't enough, there are already plans to expand to the side with another 4,000 square foot complex, called imaginatively The Loop West!!
