Wenatchee Valley Mall is a shopping mall located in East Wenatchee, Washington. It opened in 1978[1] and is anchored by Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy's, Ross Dress For Less, and Sportsman's Warehouse.

The gross leasable area of the mall is 340,786 square feet (31,660.1 m2),[2] meaning it is smaller than a regional mall, per the definitions of the International Council of Shopping Centers.[3][4] However, despite its small size, Wenatchee Valley Mall is the only mall within an 80-mile (130 km) radius of East Wenatchee,[5] and thus serves a population of over 200,000 people.[2]

History[edit]

The mall opened in 1975[6] with Sears (1973[7]), Lamonts (2nd phase), and Buttrey-Osco Food & Drug.[8] The Bon Marché had planned to add a store at Wenatchee Valley Mall as early as 1996;[9] however, the store did not open until taking the former Buttrey building in 2001. This store became Bon-Macy's in 2003, and Macy's in 2005. Gottschalks, which replaced Lamonts in 2000, closed in 2005, and was replaced with Bed Bath & Beyond and Ross Dress For Less.[10]

Sears closed in 2013 and its building was sold to Sportsman's Warehouse the same year. In turn, Sears opened a smaller-format store.[11]
