Glendale Fashion Center was a regional shopping mall in Glendale, California anchored by department stores, which today is the site of a large power center by the same name.

The center opened in 1966 anchored by a J. W. Robinson's department store,[1] as well as Joseph Magnin and Desmond's.[2] Later, Joseph Magnin moved to the Glendale Galleria and a local retailer, Webb's, expanded the space from 30,000 to 67,500 square feet and moved into it on September 27, 1979.[3]

After damage in the 1994 Northridge earthquake the existing mall was demolished and the site was turned into an open-air power center,[4] the 264,474-square-foot center with anchors including Strouds Linens, Michaels, Ross Dress for Less, Ralphs supermarket, Longs Drugs (now CVS Pharmacy), Barnes and Noble, and Nordstrom Rack.[5]
