Cobb Place is a 335,190 square foot shopping center at 840 Barrett Parkway Kennesaw, Georgia, in northern Cobb County, Georgia. It opened in 1987, the year after the Town Center at Cobb opened on the other side of Interstate 75.


The original anchor stores were Lechmere, Service Merchandise, and Uptons (all of which went out of business nationally), with entertainment outlets Q-Zar and AMC Theatres. After closing, Lechmere's location later became Phar-Mor, and after that became Bed Bath & Beyond, which in 2003 moved to a newly constructed store adjacent to its old location in Cobb Place. The former BB&B space was completely gutted, and became a Designer Shoe Warehouse. The former Service Merchandise is now American Signature Furniture. Smaller stores to its left were demolished to become Cost Plus World Market, and the same was done to its right for a new Basset Furniture, and a Thomasville Furniture store.

In the summer of 2000, the AMC 8 Theatres moved to a new location on Cobb Place Lane, where it became a standalone cinema.

A small United States Post Office branch is also located at Cobb Place, along with several restaurants, a vacuum cleaner store, and various others.


The center also owns a short road, Cobb Place Parkway, which runs essentially due north/south from Cobb Place Boulevard on the north to Barrett Parkway on the south, where is become county-owned Home Center Boulevard.

Cobb Place Boulevard is a half-circle road which runs from the first intersection southwest of I-75 to the first intersection northeast of Cobb Parkway (U.S. 41), behind the former Kmart. West of Barrett Lakes Boulevard and the end of the McCollum Field runway, the area is an office park, though its relation to the shopping center's management or ownership is unclear. The northeastern end is one of the most accident-prone intersections in the county.[citation needed]

Cobb Place Lane is a short spur leading to the AMC theatres, almost opposite Cobb Place Parkway.
