Columbia Place is one of South Carolina's largest shopping malls, with nearly 1,100,000 square feet (100,000 m2) of retail space. The mall is located just off Interstate 20 and Interstate 77 on Two Notch Road in Columbia, South Carolina.

Opened in 1977 as Columbia Mall, it was originally anchored by Belk, JCPenney, and Sears. Rich's opened a few months later. Dillard's replaced Belk in 1995 and closed in late 2008. JCPenney left the mall for a new Lifestyle Center, Village at Sandhill ten miles (16 km) away in 2007. Current major stores include Burlington, Macy's, and Sears. It is home to the only Macy's location in more than a 50-mile radius, which helps solidify the mall's presence and position in the market.

The two-level mall added an 8 unit food court in 1997 and received its first renovation in 2002. Columbia Place was built by Kahn Development Company and the Richard E. Jacobs Group and was purchased by CBL & Associates in 2001. For a period of time the mall was leased and managed by Spinoso Real Estate Group of N. Syracuse, NY after being lost by owner CBL & Associates Properties in a foreclosure action. CBL & Associates Properties also lost their former Citadel Mall property in Charleston, South Carolina in 2013 after foreclosure.

The road that loops the mall's parking lot is known as Columbia Mall Blvd and is the address for many outlying businesses including McDonald's, Party City, and Virginia College.

On October 31, 2014, Las Vegas real estate investor, Moonbeam Capital Investments acquired Columbia Place Mall.[2]
