Columbia Center Mall is a shopping mall located in northwestern Kennewick, Washington, owned by Simon Property Group. It is the largest mall in southeastern Washington, with Macy's (Originally The Bon Marché), and JCPenney as its anchors.[2] It opened in 1969,[3] and has undergone two major renovations. In 1988, the expansion opened anchors Sears[4] and Lamonts (later Gottschalks, The Bon Marché Men's and Children's, now Macy's Men's and Children's).[5] The second in 1997 on the site of a former Pay 'n Save, brought Barnes & Noble, Old Navy, plus a renovated eight-screen Regal Cinemas (Columbia Center 8), which closed in July 2018, and was demolished for a Dick's Sporting Goods that opened in Fall 2019.[6]

On December 28, 2018, it was announced that Sears would be closing as part of a plan to close 80 stores nationwide. The store closed in March 2019.[7]
