The Avalon Mall is considered "The Mall" in Newfoundland and Labrador and is a popular tourist destination, particularly among residents of the numerous small rural communities in eastern Newfoundland. While there are other malls in St. John's and the surrounding areas, most are much smaller. Moreover, while consolidation and the rise of the power centre have meant that many other St. John's malls have approached dead mall status, the Avalon Mall remains fully occupied by retail tenants.
The mall has 2,900 parking spaces which includes underground parking and ground parking. Most parking spaces are located around the perimeter of the mall but there is also a large parking lot on O'Leary Avenue where a pedestrian overpass links the parking lot to the mall. A McDonald's restaurant with drive-thru is in the mall's parking lot on Kenmount Road; this was built some time after 2000 to compensate for the closing of its previous location further up Kenmount Road, which has been demolished and is now the site of the Capital Hotel, which opened in 2004.

Famous quotes containing the word today:
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD is our God, the LORD alone; You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 6:4-9.
“The East is the hearthside of America. Like any home, therefore, it has the defects of its virtues. Because it is a long-lived-in house, it bursts its seams, is inconvenient, needs constant refurbishing. And some of the family resources have been spent. To attain the privacy that grown-up people find so desirable, Easterners live a harder life than people elsewhere. Today it is we and not the frontiersman who must be rugged to survive.”
—Phyllis McGinley (19051978)
