San Antonio Shopping Center is an outdoor shopping mall located on El Camino Real at San Antonio Road in Mountain View, California. It is one of the biggest shopping malls in Mountain View, and its proximity to Los Altos and Palo Alto also attracts shoppers from the nearby towns. The mall's anchor stores include 24 Hour Fitness, Ross Dress For Less, Trader Joe's, Sears and Wal-Mart.

History

Starting in the 1950s, the center was an open-air shopping mall, originally featuring Rhodes and Sears, with Mervyns coming later. Over time, the mall was expanded, with Rhodes also converting to JCPenney. Most of the mall was demolished in the 1990s, except for the Sears wing and Mervyns, to make way for Wal-Mart.

Sears had announced that they did not intend to renew their lease when it expired in March, 2007,[1] and liquidated its inventory. Home Depot expressed interest in leasing the Sears space, but at the last-minute Sears re-signed their lease for another 3 years.[2]

The shopping center is easily accessible through public transportation: it serves as a major stop for VTA bus lines, and Caltrain's San Antonio train station is within a walking distance. Additionally, Stanford's free shuttle service Marguerite operates a shuttle to San Antonio Shopping Center on weekday afternoons and evenings, as well as during the weekend.
