Exploring Easton Town Center
By Theresa Russell

It’s more than just shopping at Easton Town Center and of course, shopping is taken to a different level at this expansive retail center in Columbus. The shopping center is implementing various protocols, such as stringent and daily cleaning, adding hand-sanitizing stations, and recommending facial coverings in order to ensure the safety and well-being of employees, guests and partners.

Easton Town Center: The Goods

If you can’t find it at Easton, you really don’t need it. The stores run from the local to well-known chains. Think Trader Joe’s, Macy’s, and Total Comfort. But that hardly touches the tip of the iceberg of the variety of shops available within this 1.7- million square feet of mixed-use space. You are certain to find whatever you want – and even more- in this open air shopping center. One of the largest items you can buy at Easton is a Tesla!

Easton Town Center: The Food

Shopping definitely creates an appetite and there is no lack of eating options at Easton Center. The tough part will be narrowing down the choices. Just like with the shopping, there are national chains like Smith and Wollensky and Cheesecake Factory or local eateries like Café Istanbul, Hot Chicken Takeover or Mitchell’s Ocean Club. From a snack or drink to a full meal, you will find something to satiate yourself without having to leave the premises.

Easton Town Center: The Entertainment & Events

As if shopping and strolling around isn’t entertainment in itself, there are several venues that welcome you including Funny Bones Comedy Club, an AMC theater (reopening mid-July) and  LEGOLAND® Discovery Center. Easton has created their own Sunset Series Drive-In movie theater for the summer, showing movies Tuesday through Saturday from May 22 to July 2. Individual retail establishments also offer their own events. Refer to the schedule for a complete calendar of events.

Easton Town Center: The Lodging

If your idea of shopping is more of a destination event than a single shopping trip, you will be happy to know that there are two lodging options currently available. The newly renovated Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn are both great places to relax after a long day of exploring the shops. Be sure to check out their government guidance to confirm eligibility to travel and stay at their hotels here.

Easton Town Center: Getting Around

Parking is free and plentiful, but for prime spots there are meters on the street. Proceeds from these parking fees go to charity. The Easton Trolley has three stops with one connecting to the Easton Gateway section of the complex. No need to find another parking space when using this method of transportation. Shared bicycles are also available. Make a day of it and visit Easton Center in Columbus.
