The Columbia Mall is a shopping mall located in Columbia, Missouri, United States. It was built in 1985[1] and is the largest mall in its area.[2]

Its anchors are Dillard's, JCPenney, Sears, and Target.[1] The mall also has a post office[3] and a car wash.[4] It was the 3rd mall in Columbia, after Parkade Plaza in 1965 and Biscayne Mall in 1972.[5] In 2013, an H&M store was announced for the mall.[6][7] In March 2014, the mall announced that The Arcade will move into the space previously occupied by the bankrupt Deb Stores. The mall manager, Rusty Strodtman, said arcades seem to be gaining momentum once again, meaning this could be a good long-term fit for the mall if everything goes well.[8]
