By Mike Hazlip—
Sunrise Mall is losing another retailer, as a clothing store in the mall’s more active section announced they will close at the end of June.

An employee for Choice told The Sentinel that the impending closure is due in part to a recent rent increase and lack of foot traffic. Signs posted at the store say the business will close June 30.

The employee, who did not provide a full name, said the store’s merchandise will be sent to other affiliated stores located outside the Sacramento area.

The store sells women’s and children’s clothing.

As previously reported, while the mall saw the closures of several tenants last year, it also saw the opening of a toy shop, jewelry store, and a tech store. A West African cuisine and a performing arts nonprofit also opened at Sunrise Mall in 2022.

The city’s long-term plan for Sunrise Mall includes guiding redevelopment of the nearly 100-acre site to include adding up to 2,200 multi-family residential units, along with 480 hotel rooms, 320,000-square-feet of retail, 960,000-square-feet of office/employment use, and 450,000-square-feet of community or institutional space.

According to the city, the first phase of the plan will likely involve developing unused parking areas over the next five years, with the full plan expected to take 20 years. The second phase will likely incorporate office space, retail, dining, and an extended-stay hotel. The third and final phases include redeveloping the existing mall into a new “21st Century Main Street.”
