The Colonial Park Mall is a shopping mall in Lower Paxton Township, Pennsylvania, about 3 miles (4.8 km) NE of Harrisburg. Located at the NE corner of U.S. Route 22 and Colonial Road in the Colonial Park CDP just east of Interstate 83 and south of Interstate 81, it serves the eastern and northern suburbs of the Harrisburg metropolitan area. Its current anchor stores are Boscov's and Sears.

History[edit]

The mall originally opened in 1960 as an open-air center called Colonial Park Plaza and featured Sears and Food Fair as anchor stores. It was enclosed and renamed Colonial Park Mall in 1970.[4] Three years later, Pomeroy's was added to the mall.[5] In 1987, Boscov's was added. That same year, The Bon-Ton company acquired the Pomeroy's chain from Allied Department Stores and rebranded the stores as The Bon-Ton in 1990. The Bon-Ton store closed in 2018.
