History[edit] In February 1955, it was announced that a major shopping center on a 50-acre site at 174th Street and Hawthorne Boulevard would be constructed. The center was officially opened on August 22, 1959 as the "South Bay Center" (later known simply as "SBC"). The architects were A. Quincy Jones, Frederick Emmons and Victor Gruen & Associates. The center included a large, freestanding, 4-story May Company department store (with an actual public bomb shelter in the basement). The store also included a book and record department, furniture department, camera shop, soda fountain and the sit-down "Bay Shore Tea Room" restaurant. Surrounding the department store was an "open air" shopping center with shaded outdoor "breezeways." There were 37 tenants on opening day: Adlee’s, Aitken’s Chic Accessories, A-1 Photo Service, Armand’s Sewing Center, Bakemasters, Bank of America, Beacon Cleaners and Dyers, Center Stationers, Children’s Fair, Children’s Shoeland, Gallenkamp Shoe Store, The Hair Stylists, Harris & Frank Men's Clothes, Hartfield’s, Helen Grace Candies, Innes Shoes, Dr. Irving, Optometrist, Jaxson’s, Lawson’s Jewelers, Leeds Shoes, Moran Drapery Stores, Modern Woman Store, Motherhood Shops, J.J. Newberry Co. Department Store (including a lunch counter), Norm Manning, Pavsner’s Barber Shop, Ralphs Super Market, Randall’s Shoes, Rancho Music Box, South Bay Bakery, South Bay Bowling Center (with 54 lanes and the Steak Knife Restaurant), South Bay Liquors, South Bay Shoe Repair, Sweet ‘n Eat Shoppe, Thrifty Drug (with ice cream counter), Vitamin Bay, and Wragg’s For Men. The grand opening featured a circus in the parking lot and a draw for a car as a grand prize.[2] On November 1, 1960, the Democratic nominee for President, John F. Kennedy, gave a speech at the South Bay Center on the last stop of his campaign tour. Kennedy won the general election eight days later, becoming the 35th President of the United States.[3][4] During the 1960s and 1970s, many stores would open and replace older ones. In the south parking lot, a car wash and theater opened. Later on, some new tenants made their debut in the late 1960s and mid-1970s, which included Sunset House Gifts, Florsheim Shoes, Nobby, Pier One Imports, and Putney Station Restaurant at the north parking lot near Artesia Blvd. On August 26, 1985 Forest City Development built an attached fully enclosed indoor mall to replace the open-air shopping center, to become the "Galleria at South Bay." It included additional anchors Nordstrom and Mervyn's, which had opened a few months earlier.[5] In 1992 Forest City sold a half-interest in the center to CalPERS,[6] before buying it back in 2001 and changing the official name to South Bay Galleria. In the meantime the May Company store had adopted the Robinsons-May name in 1993 and General Cinema had constructed a 16-screen multiplex cinema in 1997,[7] before the company was sold to AMC Theatres in 2002. In September 2006, the Robinsons-May store was renamed Macy's. In December 2008, the Mervyn's department store chain closed all of its stores due to bankruptcy, including the South Bay Galleria store. In December 2008, it was also announced that the Kohl's department store chain had bought 48 Mervyn's properties, including the South Bay Galleria property, and would take over the retail space that was formerly occupied by Mervyn's. Four years later, on December 4, 2012, it was announced that Nordstrom would relocate to Del Amo Fashion Center, after nearly 30 years of service at the South Bay Galleria, as part of Del Amo's reconstruction project.[8] On August 24, 2015, the South Bay Galleria has announced that they will hold off on finding a replacement for its newly departed Nordstrom store, until the entire mall is renovated.[9] The former Nordstom currently serves as a Wonder of Dinosaurs exhibit.[10]

Anchors and major tenants[edit] Macy's (347,000 ft²; opened on August 22, 1959 as The May Company) Kohl's (84,000 ft²; opened 2009, previously Mervyn's) Wonder of Dinosaurs (161,000 ft²; formerly Nordstrom)[11]

In movies and television[edit] The South Bay Galleria has been used as a backdrop for several movie and television productions, including Fat Albert.
