This is a hidden gem for sure. We been buying all of our oranges (while in season) here! "The best oranges in the USA as far as I am concerned." Yet, they do not sell just oranges, but all kinds of wonderful dates, nuts, dried fruits, gift baskets, pretzels, pickled vegetables, olives, sauces, honey, and a huge variety of candy such as licorice, and chocolate items. You have to check this place out!

This is a wonderful place to visit and shop. There are lots of unique shops, restaurants, theatre, and a grocery store. It is a happening place at night for locals to enjoy the cooler weather at night. Lots of garden tables that invite you sit outside and enjoy the afternoon or evening. It is centerpieced by a gorgeous fountain that has plenty of comfortable seating that surrounds it. Some wonderful landscaping done here too! Please enjoy!
If you love to shop for antiques this is the place to come. Everything imaginable you may find here. Heck, I walk through it and can remember some of the thing that you may of used your self as a kid. Ok, sorry, let's not go there....hehe! It's a wonderful store with two floors. Though part of the first floor has the unique "50's" diner, so don't forget to enjoy that. They do have a downstairs with much more to shop and enjoy. You'll feel like your in the past here.
This mall is still very popular. In 1967 the Valley Plaza became the city's first major indoor shopping center! It has over 160 shops, including Macy's, Gottschalks, JC Penney, Robinson May Company and Sears. Just too many stores to mention. It is the hangout for a lot of the younger folks so don't be surprised if it is crowded. Yet, the best time is during the week and when schools are in session. Lots of parking, but the best parking is in the back behind JC Penny’s. There’s a car port there with shade for your vehicle.
There’s a Movie Theatre located behind the mall near Wible Road, so you can see a movie too!
There is the GTEBus service station right nearby for your commuting needs.
During Christmas season this place is packed!
What to pay: About Average.
Sad to say, but with the economic hard times has hit this wonderful little mall. Gone are all the big name department stores. The only businesses are the mom and pop places at least and movie theatre, which we still like to visit. So you do not have to rate if you do not want to.
This is a very unique shopping center because it not only includes the mall, but it has surrounds big name store right nearby. It has Gottschalk’s, Harris, Mervyn's, and United Artist Theatre. Target, Wal-Mart, Vons, and Home Depot are just next door. So, it has been laid out for convenience.
Sadly this place has either closed or moved. There is a uniform apparel store in here now. So please do not rate.
It has over 10,000 sq. ft. of antiques and collectables. It just a very lovely antique store that takes great pride in how it displays the antiques. Always has the best quality antiques on the market.
Just another wonderful place to visit to purchase some fresh fruits and vegetables. It has some wonderful amenities to entertain the little ones. They have a miniature petting zoo and depending on the holiday usually have sort of entertainment going on for the children. It is conveniently located right off the Highway 58, so exiting and entering is easy. Just be careful though.
