Cascade Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Burlington, Washington.[1] Opened in November 1990, it features J. C. Penney, TJ Maxx, and two Macy's stores. Macerich owned the property before selling it to Merlone Geier Partners in January 2017.

History[edit]

Cascade Mall was built in 1989 by Winmar Company. Its original anchor stores were J. C. Penney, The Bon Marché, Troutman's Emporium, and Sears.[2][3]

Winmar also built an adjacent strip mall called Cross Court, which featured a Target store.[4] The opening of the mall caused many stores to close in nearby Anacortes.[5] The Emporium store later became a second Bon Marché before both Bon Marché stores were re-branded as Macy's.

In 2012, mall management removed the food court and replaced it with a TJ Maxx.[6]

Mass shooting[edit]

Five people were fatally shot at the mall on September 23, 2016. The shooter was Arcan Cetin, a 20-year-old emigrant from Turkey.[7]
