Concord, Calif.—October 23, 2017 —The Veranda, the East Bay’s newest destination for next-generation shopping, dining and entertainment, announced today the opening of its first businesses in October and early November. New openings include T.J.Maxx, LunchboxWax, Sleep Number, AAA, Travis Credit Union, Toys“R”Us® and Babies“R”Us®, and MOD Pizza.

“It’s an exciting time at The Veranda as our first retailers begin to open their doors this month,” said Ashton Simmons, general manager of The Veranda at CenterCal Properties, LLC. “The development of this shopping and entertainment complex has been highly anticipated, and we’ll be announcing additional openings and events through the end of the year.”

The Veranda is a 375,000-square foot mixed-use plaza that will feature retail, entertainment and dining opportunities. The property is accented by unique architecture, local art and play spaces, including Northern California’s first-ever Luckey Climber, a climbing structure offering adventure to kids of all ages. Developed by CenterCal Properties, a pioneer in placemaking, The Veranda reimagines the idea of the mall and offers more than retail stores, but a true lifestyle experience with activities for visitors several times per week.
