The Shops at Mission Viejo to Welcome Six New Retailers

The Shops at Mission Viejo is preparing to give a warm welcome to six new stores, studios and restaurants that will be joining the center over the next few months, including Madewell, The Melt, Full Psycle, A Pea in the Pod, Soma, and Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks.


“We’re excited to welcome a mix of new fashion, dining and lifestyle options for our shoppers,” said Patsy Sanquist, Director of Marketing and Business Development for The Shops at Mission Viejo.


Scheduled to debut on January 26, Madewell is the perfect shop to find great jeans and create an effortlessly cool wardrobe.  The 3,400-square-foot store will be located on the upper level, near Center Court.


In celebration of their grand opening, Madewell will be inviting blogger Courtney Halverson of Pretty Little Fawn and fashion photographer Sisilia Piring, to join in the excitement on January 26 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. In addition, Madewell will supply delicious sips and snacks for shoppers to enjoy, as well as a take-home complimentary Bien Fait Tote with any purchase, while supplies last.

Following shortly after, The Melt will be making its appearance with a 2,000-square-foot eatery and outdoor dining area in mid-February. Located on the lower level near Nordstrom, The Melt will offer fresh American cuisine, made with 100 percent natural ingredients.


Also slated for a mid-February opening is Full Psycle, a full-body cycling studio with spin classes that pair standard indoor cycling routines with strength training and pilates-based core exercises.


Three more retailers are slated to join in the spring, one of which is A Pea in a Pod, a store featuring luxury and casual clothes for mommies-to-be. The store will be located on the lower level near Nordstrom.


Soma will also join in the spring, moving into a roughly 2,200-square-foot storefront featuring lingerie and loungewear.


Offering another sit-down dining option, Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks will be the final retailer in the lineup, expected to join the center this summer. The restaurant specializes in gourmet burgers, fresh cut fries and tropical drinks that will pair well with their great happy hour deals.
