Shopping and Dining


Monrovia has become a regional shopping destination that includes more than just the typical department stores and large retailers. The walkable and quaint Old Town district offers exceptional shops in a “Main Street” atmosphere, with art galleries, gift shops, doll and toy emporiums, vintage boutiques and antique marts mixed among a fabulous selection of restaurants on pleasant, shaded streets.

The Huntington Oaks Shopping Center on Huntington Drive includes a Kohl’s and Marshall’s, Trader Joe’s, Toys “R” Us, a Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kirkland Home along with other retailers. Huntington Oaks features an expanding restaurant row with new additions of Panera Bread, Smash Burger, Chipotle and Menchies.


On the east side of Monrovia, just off the 210 Freeway at Mountain Avenue is the Monrovia Auto Mall featuring a wide variety of vehicle brands sold by several dealerships, including BMW Mini, Jeep, Acura and Honda, to name a few that are available.

In 2010, a partnership between the City, Chamber and the Old Town merchants began a Shop in Monrovia campaign illustrating to residents the financial benefits of “Putting Your Money Where Your House Is.” Shopping local keeps dollars circulating in our community, rather than flowing out. This in turn helps maintain our parks, library and public spaces, and funds vital services and programs. The Shop in Monrovia campaign has continued and keeps the community informed on the Shop in Monrovia facebook page.
