OK, I usually want to refrain from the commercial but I should mention BPM.
Here is the main meeting place of Buena Park. Buena Park Mall (BPM) has the potential to be another great mall of the greater Los Angeles area, if only more vendors would come. The best advantages of this place is location, location, location. It is just steps away from Knott's berry farms, and only a few streets away from the other enterainment venues of BP. Also, for a modest mall, BPM has quite an impressive interior with an ultra modern dining area on the lower level bright colored walls all over
Inside the mall are enough stores to get the basics in the mall experience- apparel for all, shoes, jewelry, other foods and typical household acessories. Just outside the mall is a fairly new open-air area with Krikorian Theaters to see the latest movie, an arcade and other dining options. the re is additional shooping across the mall also, just in case you were not able to find that special something.
The main reasons why I go to BPM and feel compelled to mention it are (1) for its bargains (Ross, Wal-Mart, Sears most of the little indoor shops) and (2) for its openess.
As far as capacity, BPM is relatively big but not huge like the megamalls that thrive here. So, if you are intimidated by these mega shopping centers, BPM is right for you. This mall is never, ever crowded, so, if the congestion of shoppers gets hectic to you - come to this mall!!
What to buy: Come here to find things you may need for the nearby amusement parks like a beach towel or bathing suit for the waterpark or food and water for either parks at Knotts.
What to pay: One tends to pay less for things here compared to higher end malls
Virginia's is a wonderful gift shop that is full of beauitiful, precious or fun items for both adults and kids. Being close to a very tourist helps with selling but if just on its own, the store would manage to thrive.
Last time here, I bought a little, ornate and cermanic house for $30, though it looks as if worth more.
What to buy: Lladro figures
Thomas Kinkade items
a huge variety of collectable sports-related items, especially of local pro sports teams like the Angels, Dodgers, Lakers
various cermanic figures
so much more!
What to pay: several hundreds or just a few dollars
Located just out side of Knott’s Berry Farm is a walking street that is loaded with shops and attractions that do not cost a dime to enter or see. Many of the shops offer items that would fit right in the 19th century and the old wild west of California.
This is a great place to get those gifts that you forgot to get while in the park. One of the best things about this area is that we can go there after work or on a weekend and just walk around the shops as it is located outside of the park.
What to buy: There is a Christmas shop there that is loaded with all kinds of Christmas decorations.
If you have ever wanted to get some sort of stuffed teddy bear or some other form of teddy bear then this is the place for you.
What to buy: Bears bears and more bears…. That is what this shop in Knott’s Berry Farm has.
What to pay: Prices here were not too bad but you must have a real love for some of the items to pay so much for some of the bears I had seen in there but for the most part it is reasonable.
