Eastridge Center is a shopping mall in eastern San Jose, California owned by General Growth Properties. The mall has an enclosed shopping area, restaurants and theaters. Eastridge Mall is located in San Jose CA, in between Tully Road, East Capitol Expressway, and Quimby Road.
It was opened on May 17, 1971 with the original anchors: Macy's, Liberty House, J. C. Penney, Joseph Magnin Co., and Sears. Eastridge Center was the largest enclosed shopping mall in the West. Emporium-Capwell replaced Liberty House when the chain pulled out of California. After Macy's bought Emporium-Capwell, they shuttered the store. It sat vacant until the 2005 remodel when they demolished the store.
In 2005 a major remodeling brought in an AMC Theater and outdoor streetscape, with tenants such as Barnes & Noble and Bed Bath & Beyond. Other new stores continue to open inside, as well. The general consensus is that the renovation is a success.
In February 2012, two teenage boys were stabbed and left in critical condition at the mall, which led to J. C. Penney and Macy's closing, despite other stores not doing so.
In the wake of the 2012 Aurora shooting, a mysterious package was thrown into an AMC theater at Eastridge during a showing of The Dark Knight Rises, which led to an evacuation of the theater.
On July 20, 2012, a fire broke out near the mall at a homeless encampment in a 100-by-100 ft area, but was extinguished before the fire could reach any buildings.
