The tourists might flock to Bay Street and Paradise Island, but the real goods are all found here. If you're looking for shoes, books, electronic equipment or sporting goods, search no further. About 30 specialty stores, some almost large enough to qualify as department stores, are located within the mall. In addition, several stores are outside the enclosed building but still within the shopping complex. Retailers include John Bull, Nautica, Rubins and the Sports Center. Batelco and Mundy Tours both have offices here.
I have been going to Nassau since 1996 (times a year) and it did not take me long to figure out that Bay Street is a complete tourist trap. I do all my shopping at the Marathon Mall and the local businesses.
The problem with us Americans is that we expect too much. We are spoiled by the "New Look" mall concepts of the americas and we have forgotten that it is really not the structure but the contents within.
Embrace city of Nassau and realize it is real, friendly, and inexpensive if you get away from Bay Street.
i have to say i like the marathon mall. i bought absolutely nothing while i was there but i enjoy going in to browse and i love the bahamian people. they are so friendly and laid back. i think the true problem is the canadian and american people are just too dam hiper and dramatic. stop ur complaining already!! and to the bahamians--u have a beautiful mall and a beautiful island! keep up the good work!!
i had a wonderfull time at the mall the children loved it and kellys had wonderfull survise the only thing i did not like was the food court it was very dirty and the food was a heart stopper some things were very costy but the rest of my day was a blast
There is nothing wrong with the bahamas matter of fact im a bahamian n our country is a nice place to go to we have alot of tourists come over . we treat them very nice in the bahamas we always treat our tourists nice.Bahamas is good
This mall is where most of us go on the weekend the prices are high but the quality makes it worth while. Some of you are sayin too much chldren and too much greacy food. We happen to like the food that they sell and the mall is for children to. My advice, if you have a better than everyone attitude, then this mall isdefinitely not for you. If you are friendly then you will feel right at home. After school we go there and we also go to town center mall. Its fun for us kids you know. YOu guys just always feel the need to complain.
The service in the stores was terrible except for Kelly's department store where the staff is extremely helpful. The merchandise in the stores is dated as far as the clothing goes. This mall is definitely far below U.S and Canadian standards.
THINGS ARE TOO EXPENSIVE AND REAL CUSTOMER SERVICE IS NEEDED!

THE MALL AT MARATHON IS VERY CLEAN FOR SURE!
SHOPS ARE VERY NICE AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE!
GIRLS AT THE STORES NEED SOME CUSTOMER SERVICE TRAINNING BADLY IF THEY WOULD STOP GOSSIPING I THINK THEY WOULD DO A GOOD JOB ALSO LESS MAKEUP AND LESS WEAVE! YOU ARE PUTTING IN WORK NOT PERFORMING IN A CIRCUS AND THE PRICES ARE A LITTLE TO STEEP BUT I IS ALL GOOD
The mall is in a good location, the restrooms are fearly clean, the prices of the clothing are very expensive for the quality of material, the food is ok, but not to many healthy choices. There is never any parking available and there are to many little girls half naked walking around. It's the only place to go on the weekend...........what a bore. We need more choices, more variety!More excitment!Better Prices!
Come on I know It Could Be Better! Back to the drawing board!
i think that the mall has alot to offer, a variety of stores and its better than town center mall,.we should appreciate the effort by the bahamian owners. there is only so much they can do...i like john bull, and the variety of womens clothing...this is Nassau not Miami so dont expect this mall to look like the ones in miami,...the owners should try to make the mall look more bahamian, it would be much easier that way,i like the mall at x-mas to its so pretty...go check it out for yourself..........
