BigMallRat's Rating: 7 out of
Westgate Mall is a
hybrid community center and regional shopping center. But do not let
that fool you because this place will exceed your expectations.
Westgate Mall has a loyal following.
Many people prefer this center because it's a welcome departure from
crowded mega-malls like Westfield
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 on here.
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 Dress for Less. 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.
