Discover shopping and entertainment fun near Knott's Berry Farm at the
Buena Park Mall!
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of the "Buena Park Downtown" mall near Knott's Berry Farm. Theme park visitors will find a selection of convenient shopping, dining and entertainment options here...as you'll discover on this page.
Buena Park Mall overviewA number of older malls across Southern California have undertaken remodeling and reconstruction, and have turned themselves from blah & boring shopping centers into beautiful & bustling beehives of activity.
The Buena Park Mall...now named "Buena Park Downtown"...is one of those malls who has made updates to give it a brand new look. (Well, as is usually the case, the Sears department store is a holdout; you can tell what the mall USED to look like just by parking outside of the Sears end of the building!)
The REST of the mall is looking great---and business is building. While there are a number of empty stores at the mall, the businesses that are there well more than make up for the ones that are not. From the department stores to the Ross and the new John's Incredible Pizza, this mall has a lot to offer. The modern Krikorian Theaters draw crowds that fill the parking lot around it, and you'll see what a difference that the right look can do for a mall! Around the Krikorian Cinema, you'll see a cute outdoor strolling area lined with snacking & shopping opportunities meant to keep theater-goers occupied while awaiting their movies to begin. You'll also see pretty landscaping, attractive fountains, and inviting benches on which to sit.
On this page, we'll talk about the current mix of shopping, dining and entertainment options you'll find at the Buena Park Downtown Mall, and the contact numbers you can use to ask any of these establishments the questions you have on your mind.

Shopping at the Buena Park Mall
Buena Park Downtown's clothing and department storesWhile entertainment and dining is one of the Buena Park Mall's strong points, that doesn't mean you won't be able to do some clothes shopping while you're there. So far, not many of the big name brands of retailers have moved into the mall...but you can shop at locations of the chain stores who have taken that chance, and check out some of the smaller-chain and independent clothing stores featured at the mall. Some stores, such as Kohl's Department store, are located in the mall-owned shopping center across the street from the main mall.
