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.[1]

The Boston Store branch was rebuilt in 1984.[2]

In mid-2017, the Kmart closed and was replaced by a 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2) small-format Target store.[3]

The site continues to be a strip mall called Anaheim Town Square with 372,185 square feet (34,577.1 m2) of gross leasable area,[4] with anchors Target, Hispanic-focused supermarket Northgate Market (the population was 69% Hispanic within a 1-mile radius in 2018), Ross Dress for Less, Goodwill, Pep Boys, a United States Post Office, and discount stores 99 Cents Only Stores and Five Below.[5]
