This mobile app not only can save money, but also can lessen the stress with features such as push notifications for sales at selected stores, a Google® map that can help find the fastest route to the center, live Facebook® feeds, GPS capabilities and more. Android and iPhone users can download the free application, called The Club Shopping Mall Guide, at the App Store or Google Play. Stores at Hulen Mall are grouped by genre.
