Strip malls have improved to the point where they rival traditional shopping malls. The best ones have a grocery store, drug store, multiple places to eat, and more. The strip mall at Camden and Union in San Jose is the best. It has Armadillo Willy’s, Jamba Juice, Peet’s, Five Guys, Chipotle, Lucky, CVS, and Great Clips, where I get my hair cut.
If that’s not enough, there’s Cambrian Park Plaza Shopping Center across the street, with a Togo’s and Round Table. However, Cambrian Park Plaza Shopping Center got sold and we’ll be getting condos and office space in there. Stay tuned for more.
