Brea Mall is located in the city of Brea, Orange County, California. The mall has been owned and managed by the Simon Property Group since 1998. It has four major departmental stores as tenants, more than 175 boutiques and specialty stores, as well as a food court.
Brea Mall was opened during 1977, with anchors Sears and May Company California. Within a couple of years, The Broadway and Nordstrom’s second California store was added. During the early part of 1990, a larger Nordstrom and JW Robinson’s was added, as well as a Y-shaped add-on to the main area. During 1993, the merger between May Department Stores’ JW Robinson’s and May Company California formed the store previously known as Robinsons-May, which was later expanded.
In 1996, The Broadway converted to Macy’s after the purchase of its parent company, Carter Hawley Hale Stores, by Federated Department Stores. This merger between May Department Stores and Federated Department Stores in 2006 turned the Robinsons-May location into a Macy’s Furniture Store.
The mall also had an ice skating rink during the 1970s and 1980s, but this was removed to make space for the food court and the Y-shaped addition mentioned previously.
The mall’s five major department stores, around 175 specialty stores, day spa and popular eateries offer services to a massive, affluent area which extends into western San Bernardino Counties, eastern Los Angeles and northern Orange.
The surrounding residential real estate market in The Brea, California, offers some of the most sought-after residential properties in the LA market.
The mall offers shoppers vaulted skylights, original sculptures, decorative fountains and Italian tiles, which attracts a wide range of shoppers from the surrounding areas.
Anchor tenants: Nordstrom, Macy's, JCPenney, Sears, Macy's Men's Children & Home.
