The Merchandise is a HUGE yet beautiful facility boasting over 1M square feet. The architecture inside is amazing and the building is easily navigated. The walk to the mart is nice as it's set alongside the river.

The building is gorgeous. The stairs up to the second floor are unique, stadium style for sitting and walking feels expansive and modern in the middle of all that marble! It's a nice place for a quick bite, but they could use more coffee options....More
