Panama City Mall is a single story enclosed shopping mall in Panama City, Florida. Opened in 1976, it features J. C. Penney, Dillard's, Sears, a Bed Bath & Beyond, and Planet Fitness as its anchor stores. It is owned and managed by Hendon Properties of Atlanta as of September 2013, purchased from CBL & Associates Properties.

History[edit]

The mall, built by Charles N. Agree, opened in August 1976 with Sears and Gayfers as its anchor stores.[1][2]

An East Wing, and J.C. Penney anchor store, were completed in November 1982. The Gayfers store was rebranded by Dillard's in 1999.

Cost Plus World Market and Linens 'n Things were both added to the mall in the late 2000s, resulting in the relocation of existing stores.[3] Linens 'n Things is now Bed Bath & Beyond, while Cost Plus World Market has since moved to Pier Park at Panama City Beach, Florida. Planet Fitness is now open next to Dillard's
