Antelope Valley Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Palmdale, California, in the Antelope Valley.

Opened in September 1990, its buildings take up around 1 million square feet (93,000 m2). Its physical main building, parking lots, and ring road businesses encompass an area a bit less than 0.5 by 0.5 miles (800 by 800 m).

The main indoor mall currently has about 140 stores with 5 anchor stores, 2 of which are closed - Macy's (formerly Gottschalks), JCPenney, the first Dillard's in Southern California, Sears (closed), and Forever 21 (closed, formerly Mervyns). The mall also has a large Dick's Sporting Goods, which opened in 2014 in a suite originally occupied by Harris and another Gottschalks store.[1] Three other anchors, Bullock's, The Broadway, and J. W. Robinson's were planned, but never opened.

In 2007, the mall went through an extensive renovation that moved the old 10-screen theater to a replacement Cinemark 16-screen "stadium-style seating" theater in the north ring road area.[citation needed]

Mervyns closed in December 2008 and became Forever 21 in 2009. Forever 21 closed in 2018.[citation needed]

On June 22, 2020, it was announced that Sears would be closing as part of a plan to close 28 stores nationwide. Sears closed on September 6, 2020.[2]

In 2022 the mall was acquired by Bridge Group Investments for $60 million.[3]
