Vendors benefit from Exit 76 Antique Mall's sophisticated, state-of-the-art, mall-wide security system. This fact was featured in a recent article in Antique Week magazine, highlighting a break-in at the mall and the security features that led to apprehension of the person responsible! This is now TWO break-ins after hours in our entire twelve-year history, and two CAUGHT, with recovery of stolen coins and other merchandise. Read about it here.

Here's what people are saying about Exit 76 Antique Mall...

Just a note to say WOW!, lightning struck yesterday and I had my best day ever! First week of Feb. with nasty weather was such a headache, I felt for sure I would have to pay Exit this month. ... I know we dealers don't express this enough, but THANKS again to you all red vesters for all you do every day. -- Shirley C., Exit 76 Vendor

We came through your way over the weekend heading back home to Tennessee and saw your signs on I-65.... We got off of the exit and was thrilled at just the exterior of your mall!  I just had to write to ya'll and tell you that this was one of THE BEST antique malls we've been to in a L-O-N-G while!!  Very clean, neat, tidy, organized, and friendly buisness!!  I came home and am already making plans to visit again when I can stay overnight and see ALL of the building!!  Great location, great items, great atmosphere, great employees, and just plain 'ole GREAT!   Can't wait to visit Exit 76 Antique Mall again soon!!  -- Kim B., February 2011

I love this mall. Due to this economy I have not only been watching the way I spend my money, but wanting to get more for it. I have pretty much given up on regular stores in the hopes of finding it first here. I have even been thinking of getting a booth here due to the traffic I see. The place is clean ,well- lit, cool with ac. I got some info from other paces, but this one has a service where they allow you to check your sales oline, since I live 40 miles away I think it would be a good fit. they deserve to win. I do not even know why some of these places are in this "antique" category.. not only is it great for me as a consumer, but I may make the move to supplement my income as a vendor soon!! -- Posted by: Carlos A., 8/12/2009

It is not only large but is filled with something for everyone. The variety is tremendous. There is a main rest & refreshment area as well as rest areas throughout the entire mall. I live in St.Louis & stop in every time I am near. -- Posted by: Tom B., 8/8/2009

Exit 76 Antique Mall had very helpful and prompt service and a great selection of high quality items for same. You can find just about anything there. -- Posted by: Jake W., 8/10/2009

Exit 76 Antique Mall has the most extensive number of vendors and items in the state. All of the merchandise is of high quality and the vast majority of merchandise is genuinely antiques. There are always very helpful staff members on hand who know the current inventory well and can help find the rarer items you're looking for. -- Posted by: Kristen B., 8/13/2009

As a former employee (I moved out of town), I know first hand how amazing and customer oriented the staff is. Their positive attitude is unmatched. There's no other antique mall like it in the area. -- Posted by: Jerry P., 8/11/2009

We stopped one day on our way down to Nashville and ended up spending hours there not only shopping and browsing but also talking to the great staff who were very knowledgable about the antiques. Couldn't believe how clean, organized and well kept the entire mall was in spite of it being so expansive. You should stop the next time you are near, you won't regret it! -- Posted by: Johnny B., 8/11/2009

Just went in there to buy some dishes for my son who is going to college. I could not believe the quality of the set I found. Service was great, I wouldn't have been able to find such a great deal at discount stores! A great way to save money! -- Posted by: Tesha G., 8/7/2009

Found this Mall just passing by on 65, we enjoyed it so much that we spent the entire afternoon. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable and couldn't believe how clean and organized it was. I would recommend everyone to stop. -- Posted by: jedrht, 8/6/2009

Was on vacation and stopped in the mall... love antiques and loved this mall.. everyone was so nice and the selection of items was great!! Thanks for the experience. -- Posted by: mcb555, 8/6/2009

I practically live at the Exit 76 Antique Mall! Everything I need and more is always available to me, and if I need any assistance, the staff is more than happy to direct me towards the nearest booth of interest and possibly even present new ideas to me. Just when I think I've explored everything this mall has to offer, I only find more amazing antiques. I just can't get enough! -- Posted by: sammy987654, 7/25/2009

I have been an avid fan of the Exit76 Antique Mall, but I have to share one of my favorite experiences. I recently found a Christian Dior fur coat for only $100! It was in excellent condition and the owner graciously directed me to this incredible find! On the way out, I stopped at their new tea room and had a great dessert for the road! This place is unlike any other antique mall! Great service, INCREDIBLE finds, and very organized! -- Posted by: laurenxc, 7/16/2009

I have visited several antique malls throughout the united states and Exit 76 Antique Mall is by far the best! Their selection of items is unbelievable. It is hard to go there and not buy something! Their customer service is unbeatable. It's a very large establishment but you can always find someone to help you if you have any questions. -- Posted by: turnerlindsey, 7/15/2009

HUGE SELECTION OF ITEMS, GOOD PRICES, WONDERFUL PEOPLE. -- Posted by: alvera1128, 7/15/2009

The staff is very friendly and I like being able to spend the day there and not have to leave the building. The booths are very nice and they now have Aunt Aimee's Farm Cafe that is wonderful. Just a wonderful experience. -- Posted by: bflymcqu, 7/13/2009

Always find something unique/offbeat when shopping there. Have purchased everything from a fur coat to a IU soccer light. -- Posted by: junks, 7/11/2009

It's the largest and the best. Great customer service and the food at the cafe is great! -- Posted by: dressagefan, 7/10/2009

My wife and I have traveled extensively throughtout the U.S. and visited each and every antique mall we could find along the way. Of all these visits we are each most impressed with the Exit 76 Antique Mall.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and the mall is super clean and spacious. Each of the booths are arranged nicely and the prices are easily readable. We return eagerly when we can. -- Posted by: Garyw12, 7/9/2009

Absolutely awesome! Never had been in until I saw the billboards on i65 saying I can stretch my dollars at the mall. So in this economy, I thought why the hell not. Ended driving away in my truck with a lot of stuff. Saved a lot a dough and thinking about selling some of my collectables here... if I can let a go! -- Posted by: davinners, 7/7/2009

Another Customer Comment: Jeff and I spent several hours down at Exit 76 Saturday. I just wanted to tell you what a great job your red vest team continues to do in customer service. I know I was approached by at least three different members, welcoming us to the Mall and asking if they could be of any service. What I liked about them was that they were sincere, and did not "hound" us as some places where you feel like you're being followed around through the entire store! haha So, again, a typical gracious experience at Exit 76! And WOW do you guys have the merchandise in there!! Whew! Like to never have gotten through it all. The merchants continue to tastefully display their wares.

Vendor Testimonial: Never before have we been involved with people that do more for their mall, store, customers and sellers. We have been involved in retail sales for 30 years -- all kinds of shows and sales ALL over the united states -- inside / outside, Indy Gift & Hobby Show -- Flower & and Patio Show ( 20 years ) -- Keystone @ the Crossing ( retail shop 10 years ) -- Keystone Mall -- several malls at Christmas time and Albuquerque (12 years, dealing with over 1,000,000 people and total cost of setup over $7,000 ). I have never seen such dedicated service from any of the above organizations -- owners, managers, staff -- anybody. Your advertising program, in-house operation is to be envied by any retailer at any level. I actually feel guilty not doing more with our booths.

I don't know where the economy is going, but I don't know what else you could do to propagate your business. Many, Many Thanks. Please save this to share with anyone that ever doubts your dedication to your business.

See you at the MALL!

- Nick & Ruthie H., Booths 43, 58 and 868

We also have a "wish book" for those  hard to find items.... Our Red Vest staff often reviews those requests, and contacts vendors who may be able to furnish those specially-requested items for our customers. Just another way that Exit 76 strives to fulfill our customers' needs and wants!
