Montclair Place is a 1.2 million-square-foot indoor shopping mall located in Montclair, California. The mall is anchored by Barnes & Noble, JCPenney, Macy's, and Nordstrom.

History[edit]

The mall opened on November 5, 1968, at a cost of $50 million, with 69 stores on a single level. Montclair Plaza was developed by contractor Ernest W. Hahn and was originally anchored by JCPenney, The Broadway, and May Company. The mall was upgraded with a second level that opened on October 30, 1985. Sears was added to the mall the same year. The first Nordstrom store in San Bernardino County opened at the Montclair Plaza on May 2, 1986. May Company was converted to Robinson's-May in 1993. The Broadway became Macy's in 1996. Macy's relocated to the Robinson's-May space in 2006 after the chains merged.

In addition, CIM Group, Inc. leases the mall. In November 2015, the management group renamed the mall "Montclair Place". They also announced renovations that would take place by the end of 2020. On March 1, 2018, AMC Theatres announced that they will replace the old Broadway building with a new 55,000-square-foot dine-in movie theatre coming in the summer of 2020. This will be the city's first indoor theatre in nearly twenty years. In addition, multiple new stores are being added, including Forever 21 and Spectrum, which are now open. The Canyon, a 17,500-square-foot music and entertainment venue, and Kids Empire, an 11,000-square-foot indoor playground, have both opened as well. A new Lazy Dog restaurant opened in December 2019 in the former Good Year Auto Repair Shop. A WinWings restaurant will open next to the Panda Express restaurant in February 2020. On July 3, 2019, bowling & arcade amusement chain ROUND 1 announced it will open a new location within Montclair Place.

In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Montclair Place, into Seritage Growth Properties.[2] On November 7, 2019, it was announced that Sears would be closing this location as part of a plan to close 96 stores nationwide. The store closed in February 2020.[3]
