Temecula is a city in southwestern Riverside County, California. Temecula is bordered by the City of Murrieta to the north and the Pechanga Indian Reservation and San Diego County to the south. The City of Temecula forms the southwestern anchor of the Inland Empire region.
The city is a prominent tourist destination, with the Temecula Valley Wine Country, Old Town Temecula, the Temecula Valley Polo Club, the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival, the Temecula Valley International Film Festival, championship golf courses, and resort accommodations attracting a significant amount of tourists, which appreciably contributes to the city’s economic profile. In addition to the tourism sector, the educational, healthcare, leisure, professional, finance, and retail sectors all contribute to the city’s economy as well.
The area was inhabited by the Temecula Native Americans for hundreds of years before their contact with the Spanish missionaries (the people are now generally known as the Luiseños, after the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia). The Pechanga Band of Luiseño believe their ancestors have lived in the Temecula area for more than 10,000 years. In Pechanga mythology, life on earth began in the Temecula Valley. They call it, “Exva Temeeku”, the place of the union of Sky-father, and Earth-mother (“Tuukumit’pi Tamaayowit”). The Temecula Indians (“Temeekuyam”) lived at “Temeekunga” – “the place of the sun”.
Other popular interpretations of the name, Temecula, include “The Sun That Shines Through The Mist” or “Where the sun breaks through the mist”. The first recorded Spanish visit occurred in October 1797, with a Franciscan padre, Father Juan Norberto de Santiago, and Captain Pedro Lisalde. Father Santiago kept a journal in which he noted seeing “Temecula …an Indian village”. The trip included the Lake Elsinore area and the Temecula Valley. Today, over 1,000 Native Americans (this may mean tribal members, but includes those whose families were categorized “Spanish” and/or “Mexican” in the late 1800s/early 1900s) live in the Temecula Valley. The wine industry was founded by the Californios; colonial Spanish settlers planted grapes and vineyards well-suited for the climate.
Temecula is an affluent community. Supported by high median and mean income levels as well as the city’s favorable tourism and resort industries, the city is a prominent tourist destination, with the Temecula Valley Wine Country, Old Town Temecula, the Temecula Valley Polo Club, the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival, the Temecula Valley International Film Festival, championship golf courses, and resort accommodations attracting a significant amount of tourists which appreciably contributes to the city’s economic profile. In addition to the tourism sector, the educational, leisure, professional, finance, and retail sectors contribute to the city’s economy. Additionally, the Outdoor Channel was based in Temecula until relocating to Denver, Colorado in 2014.
FOREVER FLAWLESS Store-Promenade Temecula Mall
The Forever Flawless store is located in The Promenade also known as The Promenade Mall or, simply, The Promenade, a shopping mall in Temecula, California, owned by Forest City Enterprises. Opened in 1999, its anchor stores are J. C. Penney, Macy’s which occupies two anchor spots: Macy’s North (which was a former Robinsons-May) and Macy’s South (which preceded North), and Sears.
Originally opened with 3 department stores, Macy’s opened in 2002 alongside a new concourse of shops. Macy’s and the additional stores took the remaining space originally set aside for an ice skating rink on the south side of the 766,500-square-foot (71,210 m2) mall; the ice rink never came to fruition.
In recent years, the Promenade has gone through some changes. For instance, two new parking lot towers have been built between the Edwards Theatres and Macy’s, and between them, a row of shops called “The Shops on Promenade Drive” have been added, with a new entrance through the JC Penney wing with such stores as White House Black Market, Apple Inc., P.F. Chang’s, The Walking Company, Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma. This section of the mall opened on March 26, 2009. Macy’s acquired the former Robinsons-May location which operates as the Macy’s Men’s, Children and Home store on June 14, 2008, while their original location is a Macy’s Women’s only store.
