It's been over two years since we featured our original article on Brentwood shopping, "Brentwood Shopping: An Up and Coming Haven". Since then, more developments have been planned and more stores have opened. With the October 2008 grand opening of the Streets of Brentwood, our original prediction that the list of stores would double in two years may have come true. As stores come and (sadly) go, our list of Brentwood Shopping by location may not always be perfectly updated, but we will try to do some updating at least once a year. Promise.
So what has developed in the last two years?
The Streets of Brentwood, an outdoor mall featuring a 14-screen multiplex and over 60 specialty stores opened in October 2008. It's a great place to hang out with plenty of parking and a nice big piazza, and hopefully, more restaurants and some coffee shops to follow. Personally, I'd be happy to see some Crate and Barrel or Williams Sonoma-type of stores as well.
Several shopping developments have opened along Lone Tree Road, the area's main shopping strip. Among the big store openings in the last two years were the Best Buy and Walgreens at Brentwood Junction, and Office Max at Brentwood Station.
JC Penney also opened its doors over a year ago on the Orchards at Slatten Ranch, which is a shopping development that when finalized, will be adjacent to the Slatten Ranch shopping in Antioch.
The Shops at Fairview at the corner of Balfour Road and Fairview also opened in the last two years, and is anchored by a Longs Drugstore.
Other big store openings along Balfour Road include Food Maxx which now stands where Albertson's used to be along Balfour Road, and Walgreens on Balfour Road and Cortona Way, near McDonald's.
The Sunset Plaza on Brentwood Boulevard has several smaller niche stores such as Brentwood Bike Co. and King of Kings Christian Bookstore.
We are currently checking out all the other stores in these and other developments and will update our list of Brentwood Shopping by location shortly so please check back again.
