Montgomery Village is an open-air shopping mall in Santa Rosa, California. It comprises more than 75 retail and commercial outlets including a supermarket, 12 restaurants, five banks, and a satellite U.S. Post Office. Its anchor department store is Ross Dress for Less.
Santa Rosa developer and two-time city councilman Hugh Codding purchased a pair of orchards south of Montgomery Drive with the intention of building a shopping complex. He created Montgomery Village Development Co. and began construction on the center in 1949; it opened the following year, featuring about a dozen businesses. The shopping center was part of the unincorporated Montgomery Village neighborhood that Codding proposed as its own city; the area was incorporated into Santa Rosa in 1955.
Because Montgomery Village is an open-air mall, its businesses line several streets including Farmers Lane, Montgomery Drive, Midway Drive, Magowan Drive and Sonoma Avenue. Occupants include:
