The Shops at Mission Viejo is an shopping mall located in Mission Viejo, California. It is the southernmost mall in Orange County and is anchored by Macy's, Nordstrom, and Forever 21. The Shops at Mission Viejo is managed by Simon Malls.
The mall opened in 1979 as the Mission Viejo Mall, anchored by Bullock's, May Company, J.W. Robinsons, and Montgomery Ward. In the year 2000, it underwent a $150 million renovation and expansion that brought many new retailers, including Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. Since remodeling/expanding, The Shops at Mission Viejo has featured a mix of upscale and mid-tier retailers, including the country's first Microsoft Store. It was during this renovation where the mall adopted its current name. In addition to renovating and expanding, Simon Malls signed 10-year leases with many stores to secure its investment.
