Hemet Valley Mall
Hemet Valley Mall is an indoor mall in Hemet, California.
The mall, which cost $10 million to build opened on October 15, 1980, with 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) of retail space. At opening it was anchored by a 50,400-square-foot (4,680 m2), $1.8-million Harris Company department store (later became Harris-Gottschalks in 1999) and a J.C. Penney, plus 40 specialty shops. Sears was then annexed to the mall in 1998 (relocated from standalone store), which later closed in 2020 as a plan of closing 40 stores nationwide. Gottschalks closed in 2009 due to bankruptcy, which was first replaced by Forever 21, and later Hobby Lobby.
