Six suburban shopping malls were built in the Sacramento metropolitan area during the mid-20th century. These are indicated with black squares on the map below.

A seventh mall-type center, DOWNTOWN PLAZA, was a center city redevelopment project, which opened in 1971. It is shown on the map by a gray square. The eighth mall in the region, WESTFIELD GALLERIA AT ROSEVILLE (nee' GALLERIA AT ROSEVILLE) opened in 2000.

The focus of this section will be the mid-20th century suburban shopping malls in Sacramento and its environs. Hence, six "Sac-Town" shopping facilities will be covered.
