Nampa is Idaho’s second largest city, both in terms of population and area. Thanks to its size, Nampa is home to two of the largest shopping centers in the state of Idaho, Karcher Mall and the Treasure Valley Marketplace. Both of these malls combined allow everyone to find anything they need in one afternoon: groceries, retail, dining, and movies.
The Karcher Mall opened in August 1965 and has maintained a steady presence as a shopping and entertainment destination in the Treasure Valley ever since. Until the Boise Towne Square Mall opened in 1988, the Karcher Mall was the largest shopping center in the Treasure Valley. Currently, the mall has 28 stores, with Big 5 Sporting Goods, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Mor Furniture, and Ross as the main anchor stores. Surrounding the mall are restaurants such as Applebee’s and Chipotle, as well as a US Bank and Bank of the West. By the end of 2019, a demolition and renovation of 81,000 square feet will result in several new mall tenants and nine residential buildings with 216 apartments. The Karcher Mall is surrounded by other shopping centers to fit a variety of needs: Home Depot, Savers, Harbor Freight, Winco Foods, Regal Edwards Nampa Spectrum Movie Theater, and the Nampa Reel Theater.
Treasure Valley Marketplace
The Treasure Valley Marketplace is a 700,00 square-foot mall on the north side of the Karcher Road exit off I-84, and is owned by CenterCal Property management, which also owns the Village at Meridian. The mall contains 37 stores, including some of the largest retailers in the country: Costco, Kohl’s, Target, Old Navy, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Best Buy. If you get hungry while you shop, stop in at Qdoba, Olive Garden, Crumble Cookies, or Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. Directly across the street from The Treasure Valley Marketplace are more places to shop and dine, including T.J. Maxx, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Burlington Coat Factory, Panera, and Cracker Barrel. In 2018, the Nampa City Council voted to zone and develop a 76-acre mixed-use development near the Marketplace on the corner of Midland Boulevard and Cherry Lane. The development will add a 200-house subdivision, two facilities for assisted and independent senior living, and a small commercial area.
