We are recognized as an All American city, and for good reason!

Conveniently located between the beaches and entertainment destinations of iconic Orange County, Westminster offers some of the most dynamic and unique retail development opportunities in Southern California.

Within 20 minutes of the city’s center are the most affluent households in America, and the largest concentration of Vietnamese-Americans in the United States. This combination provides potential retailers with the opportunity to reach a broad demographic base that is actively looking for variety in shopping and entertainment choices, from large, well-established brands to emerging and edgier boutiques.

Authentic and alive, Westminster is home to a thriving retail mix with strong and sustainable market demand for new retail development. By encouraging entrepreneurial enterprise, providing business support services, as well as creating innovative private/public partnerships, we are continuing to move Westminster economically forward. We invite you to discover Westminster.
