FAIRFIELD — Shoppers at the former Solano Mall got some big reminders Monday that the new name is Solano Town Center.

The new name and logo went up on the sign that towers above Interstate 80. They went up above the doors of one the mall’s main entrances, the one on the southeast side with the huge Solano County mural. More sign changes are coming.

“We put great effort into discussing the merits of reframing the mall’s name to make it more consistent with our strategic goal of creating a hub for shopping, dining and entertainment for Solano and surrounding counties,” said Amber Rich, the Solano Town Center marketing director, in a press release.

Solano Town Center General Manager Monty Stephens on Friday said the mall is more than retail stores, though it has those. It also has such services as a dentist and chiropractor. It has community events such as serving as a polling station.

Stephens considers the mall, along with downtown Fairfield, a community gathering spot, he said. That’s why the name changed from Solano Mall to Solano Town Center.

The mall had been called Westfield Solano mall until June 15, when the sale of the property from Westfield to Starwood Capitol Group became official. The name went back the original Solano Mall for the next few months as a holding action until a new name was announced.
