Downtown Shopping in Clovis CA
Clovis is one of the San Joaquin Valley’s shopping, dining and entertainment meccas.
The Old Town/SoFi District attracts scores of locals and visitors for a unique shopping and dining experience. The former Gastro Grill has recently been rebranded as The Craft House, a made-to-order, farm-to-table restaurant with a reputation for truly delicious offerings. In addition, two new taverns – The Fifth on Fifth Avenue between Clovis and Pollasky Avenues and The Saddleback on Clovis Avenue between Fourth and Fifth Avenues – have enhanced the area’s nightlife.
The addition of these three new businesses has further enhanced the strong appeal of the Old Town/SoFi District, said Shawn Miller, Business Development Manager for the City of Clovis.
The other area within Clovis with multiple dining, shopping and entertainment venues is along Shaw Avenue near the Sierra Vista Mall. The Mall itself features Kohl’s, Sears, Target, a large movie theater, numerous restaurants and two large entertainment venues offering indoor go-kart racing and laser tag.
The recently-closed K-Mart and Toys R Us stores across from the mall have also found new tenants. Hobby Lobby is opening in the former Toys R Us space and At Home, a Texas-based home décor store, is opening in the former K-Mart space, Miller noted.
In addition, five new hotels have recently opened, are under construction or in the planning stages in that area. An 80-room La Quinta has opened and a 114-room Towne Place Suites by Marriott, a Home2 Suites by Hilton and a 100-room Courtyard by Marriott are all under construction with a fifth hotel space carved out in city plans.
