Los Cerritos Center Entrance

Los Cerritos Center has been a cornerstone in the City of Cerritos since its opening in 1971. Owned and operated by the partnership of Macerich in partnership with the Cadillac Fairview Corporation, the center has experienced tremendous success over the years and has grown into the 1.2-million-square-foot, super-regional shopping center that it is today. Strategically located near the intersection of the 91 and 605 freeways, Los Cerritos Center features three major department stores, including Nordstrom, Macy's, Sears, an 85,000-square-foot Forever 21, and more than 180 specialty shops and restaurants.

Since opening in 1971, the Center has undergone four major renovations and additions. The most recent phase of development, completed earlier this year, encompassed the construction of a new 139,000-square-foot Nordstrom along with the addition of a 36,500-square-foot wing to the mall. The new wing includes popular stores such as Apple, M.A.C. Cosmetics, True Religion Brand Jeans, Carlton Hair International, Vision Shoes, Foreign Exchange, and Love Culture.

“Los Cerritos Center has had an exciting year with an expansion of the center, two new department stores, and great new tenants. Our recent success is a direct result of the incredible partnership with the City of Cerritos. We are so fortunate to be based in a community that believes in providing outstanding services to their businesses and a tremendous quality of lifestyle to their residents.

“With nearly 40 years in Cerritos, Macerich and Los Cerritos Center consider it a privilege to be a part of this city. We eagerly look forward to a continued relationship that will bring the very best retail can offer to Cerritos and to our shopping center.

“On behalf of the leadership of Macerich and all the employees at Los Cerritos Center, we thank you for your kind recognition.”

—Ken Kraus, Senior Property Manager, Los Cerritos Center
