Shopping At Ontario Mills For Back To School And The Holidays!

We just finished up back to school shopping – which is usually a real pain. However this year it was much easier than the years past because we went shopping at Ontario Mills, and if you’re in Southern California, you should definitely check it out!

Ontario Mills is located in Ontario, CA at the 10 and 15 freeways. It’s California’s largest outlet and value retail shopping destination with more than 20 places to dine and over 200 stores boasting some of the biggest names in men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, jewelry, sporting goods, footwear and more. Whatever you’re looking for, you can find it at Ontario Mills.

Usually when we do back to school shopping, it’s a big production. I have to take the girls separately from Ethan because while the girls love shopping, driving to 10+ different stores is not Ethan’s idea of a good time. What’s great about shopping at Ontario Mills is that we can hit all of the kids’ favorite stores – like Nordstrom Rack, QuicSilver Outlet, Justice, H&M, Forever 21, Old Navy, Abercrombie & Fitch Outlet, and our newest favorite place to shop, the Skechers SuperStore (topped only for the girls by the Disney Outlet!) – all in one place.

There are stores for the parents too! I can’t go to Ontario Mills without hitting the Coach Factory Store and Restoration Hardware Outlet. You can check out a list of all of the shops at Ontario Mills here.

What I love about shopping at Ontario Mills is that we got all of our back to school shopping done in just one afternoon! From backpacks to shoes and clothes, and even school supplies, we found it all in one spot. It’s convenient, affordable, and fun. Not only did we get our shopping all done, we even had time to stop for lunch at Rainforest Cafe.

But there’s so much more than just shopping at Ontario Mills. Whether you want to stop for a quick bite in the food court or sit down for a meal at a great restaurant like Market Broiler, Dave & Buster’s, or Johnny Rockets, there are many food choices for even the pickiest eaters.

There’s lots of entertainment, too. Hit up a comedy show and dinner at the Improv or catch a movie at AMC 30 Theatres. You can even play like a kid again at GameWorks.

Because Ontario Mills is so big, you’ll want to check out the map to find your favorite stores. We spent the afternoon wandering and found many stores we didn’t even know were located at Ontario Mills. And check out the Deals at Ontario Mills on their website so you can hit the sales that you won’t want to miss!

Now that back to school shopping is done, holiday shopping is up next. I love the idea of being able to go shopping for everything on my holiday list and being able to do it all in one place. I can shop for the kids, family, and even for holiday decorations. Bonus points for being able to go during the school day when the crowds or smaller than on the weekends. Don’t forget to become a Mall Insider so you’ll be the first to know about retailer deals and mall events. Plus you’ll have a chance at a $1,000 shopping spree…perfect for holiday shopping!

I highly recommend visiting and shopping at Ontario Mills if you haven’t been there before. Lots of parking, lots and lots of shops and dining, great deals, and fun too!
