NorthRidge Fashion Center
The Northridge Fashion Center is located in Northridge, California, 25 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, between Nordhoff St. and Plummer St., on Tampa Avenue, close to highways 101 and 118. The mall boasts over 170 shops and services, with 9 anchor tenants, J.C. Penney, Macy's (plus Macy's Men's & Home), Pacific Theatres, and Sears, all in 1,440,000 sq. ft. of gross leasable area, on 2 enclosed floors. The mall opened its doors to customers in 1971 and is currently owned and managed by General Growth Properties.
The family friendly services this mall has to offer are not different from any of those normally provided by a regional shopping center that focuses on the average customer, with certain stores for the occasional upscale shopper. The services for families are stroller rental and diaper changing areas in the restrooms, plus a children's play area. Parking is ample and free, but unfortunately there is no valet parking service, nor are there any indoor parking lots. There have been no major security incidents lately near the mall premises as the security is extremely well organized and structured. The schedule is common for a regional shopping center, the mall being open for customers Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Dining is extremely varied at the mall, with 27 full-service restaurants and eateries in the food court, plus the cafes. Entertainment is at home within the mall, with the Pacific Theatres 10 screen movie theatre available to visitors. Unfortunately, there are no attractions nearby for those visitors who would like to take a break from shopping, but some will argue that a cinema will suffice.
