Vintage Faire Mall is a shopping mall located in Modesto, California, USA. It is owned and operated by Macerich and is adjacent to State Route 99.

In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Vintage Faire Mall, into Seritage Growth Properties.[1]

Location and accessibility[edit]

Vintage Faire Mall is located in Modesto, California, in the Central Valley region. It is serviced by State Route 99 and public transportation such as the Modesto Area Express (MAX) and Stanislaus Regional Transit (StaRT) buses.


In 2001, the mall's owner Macerich invested $10 million in an extensive renovation that included new escalators, new railings and carpet on the second floor, new tiles on the first floor, modern light fixtures and new exterior signage. A new elevator was built in the center of the mall and a wing of the second floor was converted into a food court.

The Village at Vintage Faire Mall[edit]

In 2008, the mall opened an expansion that added a new outdoor "lifestyle center" to the former parking lot space between a mall entrance and what was previously Forever 21. The new expansion, called "The Village at Vintage Faire Mall", added several new retailers including Apple, BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse, Coach, Chico's, Charming Charlie, Sephora, Men's Wearhouse, Chipotle Mexican Grill and Buffalo Wild Wings.[2]
