Cupertino Square Mall
This sleek double-decker mall with hardwood floors is anchored by Macy's and Sears, and also contains more than100 specialty shops including some chic galleries and clothing boutiques. Shoppers from all over the South Bay browse its specialty shops and dine at its many restaurants, which vary from upscale Benihana to McDonalds. The mall has been a perennial favorite during the holiday shopping season, maybe because it provides that rare and most appreciated Bay Area commodity: free and ample parking.
About 10 to 15 years ago Vallco use to be a really fun place to shop and hang out. It had a brand new arcade an ice skating rink and a really good food court. But the years have not been kind to this quaint little weekend hideout. The food court has since been replaced and the arcade has become run down and dirty. Some of the really great stores like "The Emporium" are gone and the tumbleweeds have started to flow along the hard wood floors. All that's left are a few kiosks, Sears, JcPenny's and a small Macy's. The atmosphere has gone and left years ago. I was really sad to see it go down the way it did. Just take a trip down the freeway and stop off at Valley Fair, where the food is good and the shopping is even better.
I think they did a good job remodeling and adding the theatre. There is not enough retail stores and the lower level is not under construction. I am surprised Westfield did not invest in the mall. They would do a faster job in remodeling the mall.
Vallco is dying. The entire first floor has no stores and is pretty much closed off. Valley Fair has been sucking all the customers away, and for good reason. However, you can park right up front. There still are a number of stores you can shop.
Surprise! I thought it was dead, but they're tring to bring it back to life. I really don't understand how it has survived this long in such a sad state of low tenancy.
Someone big must have a soft spot in their wealthy heart to resurrect it. No, it's NOT Westfield.
Movie theater set to come in, Fall 2006, not sure what else, but right now, the whole bottom is closed for reconstruction. The top looks a whole lot better than it has for a long, long time.......It's worth coming to, again, for enough shops and a nice quiet mall stroll. When it's finished, the outcome, I'm sure will be nice, but we'll lose the non-crowd factor (which is often nice and welcomed).
So, don't write if off,,,,,,there's hope in the next year or so !!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, the mall is turning into a Ghost town but it still has a lot of the good basic stores such as Macy's, Victoria's Secret, Express, Bath and Body Works, Lady Footlocker, etc. Besides, sometimes you're just not in the mood to tackle the crazy crowds at Valley Fair!
