California Fashion Mall is a clothing store which has been operated by David Kim in the former Woolworth's on Block 86 at 1901 3rd Avenue North since the 1980s.

The store was vandalized and torched during riots on the night of May 31, 2020, leading to significant structure damage and the loss of an estimated $200,000 in merchandise. Volunteers helped to remove broken glass and board up the store, but Kim is unsure if he will be able to reopen.
