1 Stoneridge Mall • Pleasanton, CA 94588
Score (10 out of 10!)
Stoneridge mall in Pleasanton really is the best shopping center in the East Bay. Even though its true competitor, Sun Valley mall, is larger, this center is lighter and brighter. You can pretty much walk into any entrance and not feel like it’ll “take forever” to get to the other side.
Stoneridge mall has completed a minor renovation, replacing the outdating seating pits with grade-level soft seating areas. You’ll find chairs, sofas, and floor lamps on decorative tiles. In addition, an expansion is planned, including Nordstrom building a new two level store adjacent to its existing store. The old building will be turned into shops and a cinema.
Stoneridge mall features the anchor stores many people want together, Nordstrom, JC Penney, Sears, Macy’s Men’s, and Macy’s Women’s. In addition, there is a pleasing selection of shops, such as H&M, Aldo, Coach, Abercrombie & Fitch, and the Apple store.
You won’t find a food court here. Restaurants and eateries are generally grouped around the entrances. Most offer their own seating.
P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and The Cheesecake Factory are now open just outside Macy’s Women’s.
Parking can be a bear at this shopping center due to its popularity, but plenty of parking can be found in the garage near Sears, or near Macy’s Men’s.
Valet parking is available on the west side of Macy’s Women’s, near P.F. Chang’s.
Stoneridge mall is conveniently located in Pleasanton CA at the intersection of I-580 and I-680. You can exit Foothill Road south from 580 or Stoneridge Drive west from 680. From there, you can see the mall and easily make your way (follow the traffic!).
