Anaheim Center ad (Anaheim Plaza)

Anaheim, California - 1965

Even though this vintage ad says Anaheim Center, I'm assuming (judging by the store lineup and location anyway) that it's still the Anaheim Plaza (as we knew it in more recent years), just going by a slightly different name. Or was it originally called Anaheim Center? Not sure.

This great image was provided by, Dan Goodsell, of Tick Tock Toys. Thanks again, Dan! :)

Wow! Thank you for posting that interesting bit. It has always been Anaheim Plaza. I worked there in the 80s and managed to get engaged to two of the guys I worked with LOL! On a clear day you could see downtown LA from the roof top. Do not ask me what I was doing on the roof!

The Anaheim Plaza was #2, next to the #1, the Buena Park Mall. The A-Plaza was a teens delight back in the 60's, except for The Broadway Store, where it was considered too pricey for teens (our mothers shopped there for Christmas and hosiery). It was a very nice plaza, and it's too bad it went into such disarray, way before it's time! Sad to see that go by the wayside. It was a great place to shop, meet boys and just enjoy!
