Renaissance Marketplace Offers Rialto Local Shopping Opportunities

Rialto residents have been spending a lot of their hard earned money outside of Rialto because the options to shop here at home were extremely limited. Over the last 7 years a slow trickle of new options have moved into the area. Rialto leaders were so worried about the ability for new retail and restaurants to find success in Rialto that they would implore people to tell surveyors that they ate out at least 3 times a week so that we would fit into a certain demographic even if that wasn’t true.

The beginning of the new food options for Rialto was the construction of the In & Out restaurant pad that brought a Chipotle, Major Brain Freeze, Jersey Mikes and Wing Stop. There was supposed to be a Miguel’s Jr and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf but that site proved to be maxed out on space.

Years later the Coffee Bean would happen on the opposite corner and the Super Walmart Development brought things like a relocated Starbucks, Menchies Yogurt and Hawaiian BBQ.

The real influx of desirable food options is this development the Renaissance Marketplace. This development gave Rialto what it was missing out on and that has sent us searching for better food and retail options. Some of the standouts are a Drive Thru Habit, Chick-fil-a, Wich Which and so much more. The Renaissance Marketplace also brought needed retail options into the Rialto area. Even though residents were promised a Target and many residents are still upset over loosing this retailer many of us knew they were never serious.

Rialto will now have a Burlington Coat Factory, Ross and 5 Below.

Outside of the food and retail the coolest part of this development is the new Cinemark Movie Theater………
