The Village at Orange is a shopping mall located in Orange, California, formerly called The Mall of Orange. The Sears store at the mall opened in 1967, while the mall itself opened on August 16, 1971 along with The Broadway and JCPenney. The Broadway closed in 1996 due to the chain being purchased by Macy's and the site was torn down for a Walmart. The center completed a $57 million renovation in 2003. The densely populated trade area has over 1.6 million people residing in a 10-mile (16 km) radius. The mall is anchored by Sears to the south and Walmart to the north. A Sprouts Farmers Market opened in July 2009, replacing the Linens 'n Things store that went out of business as part of the chain's nationwide store closings. There is a nearby Target but is not part of the Village. A renovation began in 2015. JCPenney closed on July 31, 2017 as part of the chain's plan to close 138 under-performing stores.
