Westgate Mall is a hybrid community center and regional shopping
center. But do not let that fool you because this place will exceed
Westgate Mall has a loyal following. Many people
prefer this center because it's a welcome departure from crowded
mega-malls like Westfield Valley Fair.
The outside facade has been remodeled
to look "upscale village." The interior appears
distinctive and inviting, yet unpretentious. If I could recommend
one thing, it'd be the addition of some color. Lots of white going
You'll find a mixture of discount stores, upscale
one-of-a-kind stores, community services, and popular national retailers.
A big draw is the Nordstrom Rack, Burlington Coat Factory, and Ross
A newer Target is a welcome addition
(taking the place of Montgomery Ward). For the neighborhood, you
can find Safeway and Century 25 Theatres.
Much of the food is offered in restaurants scattered
in the parking lot. You'll find Chevy's, Maxim's Cafe, Johnny
Rockets, Fresh Choice, and Hometown Buffet, among others.
This is one shopping center you can get front
row parking. A large lot serves the center well.
Westgate Mall is located in San Jose CA, in between
Saratoga Avenue, Campbell Avenue, and Hamilton Avenue.
