Capital Mall is a shopping mall located in Olympia, Washington. Its major anchor stores include Macy's, JCPenney, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Best Buy. The mall was known as Westfield Capital from 1998-2013 under Westfield Group ownership.

History[edit]

Capital Mall was opened in 1977 by The Hahn Company and acquired in 1998 by Westfield America, Inc., a precursor of the Westfield Group, which renamed it "Westfield Shoppingtown Capital", dropping the "Shoppingtown" from the name in 2005.

The mall began with three anchor department stores and a smaller junior anchor. Its first store, The Bon Marche, was followed by J.C. Penney and Frederick and Nelson (which became a Mervyn's in 1992).[1] A Lamont's was a junior anchor until its closure in 2000; the space reopened as a Best Buy three years later. Upon acquisition by Westfield, it underwent a $50 million expansion and renovation, adding the "Promenade at Westfield Capital" with Borders Books and Music and Bed Bath & Beyond in August 2006. A 14-screen Century Theatres multiplex opened on May 25, 2007. Borders closed in 2011, with T.J. Maxx replacing it in October 2011.

Mervyn's closed its 99,924 sq ft (9,283.2 m2) store on December 31, 2006 and the space has since been divided into smaller sections: Forever 21 opened in August 2010, REI opened in May 2011, and Total Wine & More opened July 2013.

In October 2013, Westfield sold a controlling interest of several malls in the United States to Starwood Retail Partners, which included Capital Mall.[2]

In October 2016, Dick's Sporting Goods opened a new junior anchor store in the mall.[3]
