If you're looking for the convenience of one-stop shopping in a clean, inviting environment, visit Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton. Stoneridge, although more on the upscale side of 'normal', offers a wide variety of shops and department stores, ranging from Sears to Nordstrom and Pottery Barn Kids to Coach. Grab a bite to eat on the go at McDonalds, or have a relaxed, sit-down meal at the Sweet River Grill and Bar. Unlike other malls I've frequented in the past, Stoneridge is always clean, and the two-story structure is large and airy. Take the kids to see Santa Claus at Christmas time or the Easter Bunny during the Spring. I've even seen a giant pumpkin in the center court at Halloween! In addition to all of the shopping benefits, it's also a great place to just walk on rainy days. I definitely recommend Stoneridge for your next shopping excursion!
