The Antelope Valley Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Palmdale, California.

Opened in September 1990, its buildings take up around 1 million square feet (90,000 m²). Its physical main building, parking lots, and ring road businesses encompass an area a bit less than 0.5 by 0.5 miles (800 by 800 m).

The main indoor mall currently has about 140 stores. It presently has 5 anchor stores. Three other anchors, Bullock's, The Broadway, and J. W. Robinson's were planned, but did not surface for unknown reasons. The other anchor stores are JC Penney, Sears, Forever 21 (formerly Mervyns), Macy's and Dick's Sporting Goods, which was developed in 2013 in a suite originally occupied by Gottschalks.[1] It also has the first Dillard's location in Southern California. Men's Wearhouse, Chase, Silver Depot, 24 Hour Fitness, Pier 1 Imports, Guitar Center, Sundance Spa, Ladies First Gym, Keller Williams, and Sears Auto Center are some of the stores located on the line along the mall's ring road which provides access to the mall's parking. There is also a Shell gasoline station. A new Hilton Garden Inn is also on the ring road.

In 2007, the mall went through an extensive renovation that moved the old 10-screen theater to a replacement Cinemark 16-screen "stadium style seating" theater in the north ring road area. The vacated theater pad houses Claim Jumper and Yard House. The Antelope Valley Mall currently has major retail stores like Aéropostale, Hollister Co., New York & Company, Lane Bryant, Old Navy, Tilly's, Build-a-Bear Workshop, Zumiez, Hot Topic, Express and more.


In the Food Court, the Antelope Valley Mall has dining including Great Steak & Potato Company, Subway, and Villa's Pizza and Pasta. The Antelope Valley Mall also has a selection of dining establishments outside of the Food Court including Red Robin, Claim Jumper, Texas Cattle Company, and Greenhouse Cafe. "Restaurant Row" located on Mall Ring Road has a selection of restaurants including Arby's, Carl's Jr., Denny's, Chili's, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, El Torito, Cold Stone Creamery, Famous Dave's, Johnny Carino's, and BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse.
