Cold Stone Creamery is holding a grand opening Aug. 15.

The Marketplace at Calimesa continues to grow. With a Stater Bros. supermarket as its anchor store, the Marketplace now includes a Starbucks, Del Taco, Skin Solutions Aesthetics, a 7-Eleven convenience store and a Cold Stone Creamery, which is holding its grand opening on Sunday, Aug. 15. Every purchase leading up to the event earns customers a raffle ticket for a Playstation 5 and other prizes at Cold Stone’s grand opening. The raffle drawing begins at 8 p.m. and participants need to be present to accept prizes. Other stores on their way, with signs out for hiring, are fast-food restaurants Jack in the Box, Panda Express and Arby’s. Also announced as the Marketplace’s first sit-down restaurant is Fire Rock Burgers and Brews, a casual rock ‘n’ roll-themed eatery offering local draft beers and burgers. Located off Interstate 10 at the Cherry Valley Boulevard exit at Desert Lawn Drive, the Marketplace is Calimesa’s first retail center on the west side of the freeway with 100,000 square feet of shopping space. At 45,712 square feet, the Stater Bros. offers full-service meat, seafood, service deli and bakery departments and sushi made in-house daily. It’s a big difference from the other Stater Bros. in Calimesa, which is a much smaller store with less amenities on Calimesa Boulevard. The Marketplace has a “California Ranch” architectural design in keeping with the aesthetic of the Summerwind Ranch development, which includes the Summerwind Trails residential project of 3,600 to 3,700 units at build out. The California Ranch design includes hip and gable roofs, and broad overhangs, while the landscaping calls for low-to moderate-watering plants.

I did see a sign on Starbucks that announced the coming of a WaBa Grill, but don't know the location yet. I 'spose they'll be duking it out with Panda.


What else is coming, or is that still up in the air? I still see lots of bare land as of Aug. 27, 2021.
