Unfortunately I cannot give you any sort of difinitive answer, but I can give you my opinion. I have a similar shop in my mall called Almaya Perfumes(or something like that). They have most of the Creeds and a couple of Tom Ford Private Blends, as well as all the other designer stuff. I've got a few Creeds, and I am going to be completely honest. I WOULD NOT buy Creeds from them. Unless they have testers available to smell, then I would not trust it regardless of how cheap they are. I'm sure they aren't fake, but they are probably old or damaged goods. That is just my opinion though. There are plenty of discount websites that offer VERY cheap Creeds that are highly trusted amongst BN such as scentiments.com and fragrancenet.com. I'd trust them before trusting the shop in the mall.
