    been or gone???

    I wish someone could help me with these 2 sentences...

    My neighbors have never gone to the mall. OR My neighbors have never been to the mall.

    I will appreciate it. Thanks!

    Welcome!
    Both are correct. The first emphasizes going there; the second emphasizes being there. (although it is the negative "never")
    You can't have one without the other.
