The Disney Store is returning to the Sunvalley Mall, has learned.

The new store, which will be one of the few concept stores opening throughout the country, will include interactive concepts aimed at increasing traffic. Some of the features will include a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, a store theater and several other activities for children.

The store is expected to open in the Spring of 2015.

Because there isn’t enough Disney crapola shoved down our throats already.

Gag me with a spoon!

That sounds fun!

I miss the original concept of the Disney store, with higher end items that were more unique. I found nothing to purchase in the last seven years of its existence.

They pitloted a cool Disney play place like The Jungle in Westlake Village (So Cal) about 14 years ago that didn’t survive but was fun to visit when we saw family.

I wish they could have kept a store open while remodeling like they have done with other shops. I miss having them there.

Glad they are coming back. My son loves that store

What? A store that doesn’t just sell merchandise to over sexualized teeny boppers….I am shocked

Thank you Mayor,!
The Disney Store is one of our favorite stores to visit in the mall.

taking my name doesn’t make you me. So sad.

I’m actually happy that Disney closed down for a little while. My 4 y/o learned that is she told her grandparents that she wanted to go to Red Robin for dinner that it would mean a trip afterwards to the Disney store. I’m glad Concord is getting a new store in SunValley.

One of my ex soccer coaches worked at the Disney store in the sun valley mall for years. Then I heard he went to prison for child porn.

No joke.

That's All Folks! July 16, 2014 at 9:48 AM

I miss the Warner Bros. store with Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner.

Does anyone else... July 16, 2014 at 9:49 AM

Remember how huge the Disney store was when it first opened in the mall many years ago, then how they gradually scaled it down until it disappeared? Seems like Disney might want to consider an alternate location such as Broadway Plaza, where customers might actually buy something rather than just window shop.

P.S. Bring back to Sunvalley Ice Rink!

Look at all you negative Nancy’s. Really? People these days really should get their heads checked for complaining about a new Disney store. Life is too short to be angry and make negative comments!! Get over yourselves!!

Whoot Whoot….Hail Goofy

Pat July 16, 2014 at 10:07 AM

I am excited about this!

Jason L. July 16, 2014 at 10:11 AM

Enough of this! Bring back Bally’s Aladdin’s Castle/Cyberstation, B.Dalton, Waldenbooks, and Software Etc. That was then the mall actually was a place you wanted to go!

I knew the closure was temporary while they remodeled, what I’m not a fan of is laying off all the cast members. They could have opened a temporary store, as others have done, and not put all the workers on unemployment, with no guarantee of getting their jobs back. Poor move Disney. One of the few reasons I’ll go to the Mall.

Marie July 16, 2014 at 11:36 AM

Bring back Marie Callender’
That is all

More overpriced made in China crap we don’t need.

TJ Jones July 16, 2014 at 12:44 PM

Sunvalley Mall is fading into obsolescence. Scrape it and start over with more a “Main Street” feel with art/entertainment/recreation uses.

Cuzzzzzz........... July 16, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Gee……a store that doesn’t sell ghetto/gang bang wear and doesn’t play rap-crap music. What a concept.

Vindex July 16, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Super excited. One of the only reasons I went to the mall. I was bummed when I saw it close!

innapropriate location much..... July 16, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Too bad is across from Victoria’s Secret store 🙁

Donald 23 July 16, 2014 at 3:35 PM

I know…I avoid walking on that side of the mall when my kids are with me….

Mika July 16, 2014 at 4:23 PM

Joy. Oh joy. Not!

Just Sayin' July 16, 2014 at 5:48 PM

Opening in Spring will allow for an early start for 2015 Christmas sales. Smart move. BTW the new Hobby Lobby store in Concord has a huge display of Christmas ornaments and stuff. Shop early !

It's 'Meme' is that you Ma? July 16, 2014 at 5:50 PM

As we walk the walk and keep the walk of illusion of that walk we keep our children safe from the walk of our “Frozen” elders…

Thanks Disney for helping us to forget forgetting…

I applaud Disney for helping our kids to a better hope for what and can be!

Didn’t realize the store had closed, but then again I rarely frequent the mall anymore. It’s just easier to do shopping online. The mall has seen better days.

Walnut Creek Resident July 17, 2014 at 8:21 PM

I did not realize it ever left!!!

Cat Wrangler July 17, 2014 at 11:02 PM

Oh Mickey … You’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Mickey, hey Mickey ! Oh Mickey!

Original Nancy July 18, 2014 at 12:00 PM

I no longer take my kids to Sunvalley Mall. Too dangerous.
