Anaheim Town Square
The East Anaheim Shopping Center (later East Anaheim Center, East Anaheim Plaza, now Anaheim Town Square), was a large strip-mall style shopping center in eastern Anaheim, California at the intersection of Anaheim-Olive Road (now Lincoln Avenue) and Placentia Avenue (now State College Boulevard).
The center began with 140,000 square feet (13,000 m2) on 16.75 acres, and had amongst others, a Woolworth and a Sav-on Drug Store and in 1968-9 added a 86,800-square-foot (8,060 m2) W.T. Grant variety store, Jolly Roger restaurant, Commercial National Bank, and a Boston Store (department store). In 1968 the center sales volume was $20,000,000.
The Boston Store branch was rebuilt in 1984.
