Anaheim Plaza

A trip to Southern California demands a little retail therapy, and Anaheim Plaza is a favorite for locals. Smaller and less crowded than GardenWalk, it’s where you can find your favorite shops along with local options. As the very first shopping mall in Orange County, it was regional from 1954 until 1992 when it was transformed into a “power center” with a variety of popular big box stores.

The first department store, The Broadway, set the stage for making Anaheim Plaza a shopping mecca. By the time wealthy patrons began calling Orange County home, demand for more stores, more space and more restaurants was high. Anchor stores include FAMSA, El Super, TJ Maxx, Forever 21 outlet and even a Wal-Mart.
