The first tenant to open for business at OXNARD MALL was Unimart, a Los Angeles-based discount chain. The store was dedicated April 21, 1966, with an appearance by Brit songstress Petula Clark. No doubt, she belted "My Love" (which had recently been the nation's number one pop tune).

The Unimart grand opening festivities continued with an April 23rd appearance by Jackie Coogan and Ted Cassidy; "Uncle Fester" and "Lurch" on ABC TV's "The Addams Family".
