Santa Clarita is ranked No. 22 in the 2018 California Retail Survey, which compares retail sales activity across the state’s 482 cities and 58 counties.
One of only 42 cities with a retail market above $2 billion, Santa Clarita ranked ahead of Los Angeles County neighbors Beverly Hills, Burbank and Pasadena – bolstered by local options that include the Westfield Valencia Town Center, the Valencia Auto Center and recent additions such as Nordstrom Rack.
The county’s third-largest city should receive another boost later this year with the planned groundbreaking for the SCV’s first Laemmle Theatres. It’ll be located near the city’s new parking structure in Old Town Newhall, a complex that will add 372 parking spaces on 9th Street between Main Street and Railroad Avenue.
Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco are – predictably – 1-2-3 in the latest survey. Regionally, Ventura is 46th, Palmdale 68th and Lancaster 89th.
The California Retail Survey ranks the largest cities in California based on dollar volume, growth rates and sales per outlet, according to a city-issued news release on Monday.
