Stoneridge Shopping Center is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a major regional mall in Pleasanton.
Stoneridge first opened on Sept. 4, 1980, after two years of construction by over 15,000 workers. It began with three major department stores – JC Penney, Macy's and Emporium-Capwell – and over 127 specialty shops, restaurants and services.
Now the mall has five department stores – Nordstrom, Macy's Women's, Macy's Men's Children's & Home, JC Penney and Sears – and over 165 specialty stores and restaurants.
As part of the celebration, shoppers can enter to win a $198.0 gift card through the "Stoneridge 30 Years of Memories" Facebook contest at facebook.com/stoneridgeshoppingcenter. Facebook fans can share their memories of Stoneridge from now through October 6, with fans voting on their favorites. The top vote-getter will win the gift card.
"Over the last 30 years, Stoneridge Shopping Center has blossomed into the premier shopping destination in the East Bay. This is a chance to celebrate with customers and the Pleasanton community how far we've come," said Carrie Williams, director of marketing and business development.
