Cascade Mall was an enclosed shopping mall in Burlington, Washington, United States. Opened in November 1989, the mall's anchor stores are AMC Theatres and TJ Maxx. There are 4 vacant anchor stores that were once 2 Macy's stores, Sears, and JCPenney. Macerich owned the property before selling it to Merlone Geier Partners in January 2017. The mall permanently closed on June 30, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some stores will be allowed to stay open if they provide essential services, including those on the outer perimeter.
Cascade Mall was built in 1989 by Winmar Company. Its original anchor stores were JCPenney, The Bon Marché, Troutman's Emporium, and Sears.
Winmar also built an adjacent strip mall called Cross Court, featuring a Target store. The opening of the mall caused many stores to close in nearby Anacortes. The Emporium store later became a second Bon Marché before both Bon Marché stores were re-branded as Macy's.
On October 16, 2014, it was announced that Sears would be closing in January 2015. JCPenney followed suit in 2018. In January 2020, Macy's announced that it would close both of its stores as part of a plan to close 125 stores nationwide, leaving AMC Theatres and TJ Maxx as the only remaining anchor stores left.
Cascade Mall was sold to Merlone Geier Partners in January 2017 for $25 million.
On June 9, 2020, Cascade Mall announced that it would close permanently on June 30 due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The interior is set to close, while exterior-facing tenants will be able to continue to operate.
