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.
