SANTA ANITA, Calif.
— When I first came here 15 years ago, it was a brand new mall, with no stores or parking.
The mall was packed with people on a Sunday afternoon, but the mall felt empty.
It felt like we had all moved to another country, and we didn’t have anything.
When we arrived, there were more people than I had ever seen at one mall.
We thought we were going to be the only people in the mall, but we were the only ones.
We stayed a little longer than we should have and we went inside to get our things.
The mall was crowded.
People were buying and selling things on the sidewalk.
It was a rush.
I’m a woman, and I’ve been here for 15 years.
At the end of the day, I feel like Santa Ana.
It’s not a place you can just walk around and have fun.
It can be a very busy place.
It has a lot of people.
There are lots of stores, but they’re all in one corner of the mall.
It feels like Santa Monica.
The people are kind and helpful.
But the mall has been a great asset to us, so we love it.
We just wish it was more accessible.
I went into the mall to buy shoes, socks, hats, sunglasses, shoes, hats.
There were tons of things.
There was a lot to choose from, and you could spend your money where you want.
The mall had the biggest selection of jewelry in Santa Ana, and it was really nice.
There’s a lot that’s beautiful, and there’s a good selection of things to buy.
I’ve never had such a wide variety of things, and when I was shopping, I just didn’t feel like there was a place for everything.
I felt like I had to buy everything that I could.
I like the fact that there’s so many people here.
There is a lot more people here, and they’re very nice.
But, if you look at it from the outside, I don’t see a lot going on in this mall.
The malls are all in the same area.
And, I think, that’s one of the reasons why it’s been so successful.
They all have their own things that they do.
They’re in different areas.
You can’t just walk into one area and just go shopping.
We’re a small mall, and this is our fifth year.
It looks a lot like it did in the early ’90s.
But we’re really trying to grow.
We have more stores, we have more customers, and more and more people are coming into our store.
It’s a very diverse store, and so, we’re trying to bring in a mix of people, and that’s our main goal.
We hope that we can grow our stores in a way that helps people find what they’re looking for.
