Please note that all six of these stores are going to Cerritos, not to Long Beach. Just what are our City Officials and our local authorities doing to attract new business? It would appear that the answer is nothing.

does anyone really care about those six retailers? will they drive traffic that BUYS and doesn't just go to the food court? NO! Cerritos needs another big retailer like Dillards or Bloomingdales. Dillards would drive traffic to the mall because there are no other Dillards in this part of socal.

The answer is very simple. WALMART! It appears the objective of attracting retail to Long Beach is to accept the lowest possible standard. Your city officials believed this was a better idea than having anything similar to Los Cerritos Mall.

I think there is a Dillard's at the Los Alamitos shopping center south of Katella. There is also a Kohl's and a Home Goods. Great place to shop and then go to Mel's diner for lunch. Good luck Los Cerritos, but I agree that you are going in the wrong direction. Does anyone really shop there any more?

I shopped there when i lived in Long Beach. I really had no choice but to shop in another city because Long Beach didn't really have much for shopping unless you hit up the east side near the OC border.

Someone must be shopping there because it is a new store. We old fogies like to shop at stores where you young whippersnappers with your out of control offspring dont shop. So please dont start shopping there. PLEEEEEESE!

I just went into the web to verify the Dillard's in Los Alamitos. The shoppers may like it but the employees sure dont. They were compareing it to the Gestapo of all things. Maybe I wont shop there after all. So I guess if you want to, Get with the times, it will be ok.

If you think that the MAC stores will not drive revenues, clearly you are out of touch with consumer buying habits. Furthermore, Dillards is not a top notch retailer. For that target market there is a Sears and Macy's.

Nice to see Cerritos continuing to modernize and out-maneuver the surrounding cities for new retailers. This city has made good decisions from the start and they continue to be rewarded for the vision.

Unfortunately the armpit that is Artesia just couldn't wait and developed with little or no vision right in the middle of this otherwise beautiful city.

Way to go Cerritos !

Following in the Long Beach tradition, Cerritos Mall could have a Goodwill store, a mini-Walmart, a pupuseria, a taco place, and several pharmacies. Maybe throw in a WIC store and a rescue mission, too.

Sorry, I live in Los Al and there is no Dillards in the Seal Beach/Los Alamitos area. There is Coldwater Creek and Chicos. There is a Draper's and Damon for the older set.

Thanks for the correction. The name Drapers and Damons had slipped from my mind and for some reason Dillards had sneaked in. I will have to check out D&D.

I shop at Goodwill all the time. Great nearly new or new clothes at great prices if you can find your size. But I would never shop at one that was in a mall. I hate malls.

Yes at least we can go there instead of SCP. Long Beach has no real mall just a lot of strip mall type places. Thank God because Lakewood Mall just does not cut it most of the time.

Los Al is a great place to shop. It is outdoors and has one of each shop rather than a whole series of stores that sell the same thing. And plenty of places to eat across the street. Indoor malls are too big and repetitive. Put a Goodwill nearby and I would be in heaven.

Cerritos mall is an old relic....dying a slow and painful death. Its sad but the mall's heyday has passed long ago. Anchor stores are struggling to stay open. When there isn't much extra money to throw around, shoppers will flock to bargains at WalMart. Pretty soon, the mall will be a mixture of high rise office buildings and shops...much like the Cerritos Town Center. BANK ON IT!!

Whenever I have visited Cerritos Mall over the past few months, they have been very busy. I usually go to Westminster because it is not so crowded. Rossmoor Shops is getting a new Marshall's where the old Circuit City store was located--I just hope they don't let the store get trashed like the Ross Stores.
