The shopping malls are also referred as an indoor or a covered market as it comprises of multiple stores under the same roof which can be beneficial for the customers. A department store holds variety of goods and products. Where as a mall holds various department stores. In a mall, customers can use the walkways to move from one building to another. But there is no use of this system in a department store as it just a single unit. So we can say that a mall possess a bigger environment as compared to a department store. A mall is said to be a complex of buildings having shops which sell a variety of merchandise. But a department store sells more of personal and residential commodities. The main benefit of a mall is various things can be bought from a same place.
Malls are also well known by other names such as shopping centers, city center, shopping precincts, town centers and many more in different parts of the world. But the department store do not have any other name. Malls also provide the customers with Target Promo Code. These coupons help the customer to avail a discount on certain specified products and goods. These are also provided by the department stores but at rare times. The malls provide this opportunity for the customers but for a specified duration and on certain products. A target coupon possess expiration date on them. So it should be used before the mentioned date. In this way malls and department stores make a lot of difference though their purpose is the same.
