Southcenter 50 Celebration

July 31, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On July 31, 1968, Southcenter Mall opened its doors to the public. When it opened it was the second largest indoor mall in the country. Only a mall in Honolulu was larger. The stores on opening day featured an auto parts store, drug store, and a gas station. While stores have come and gone, four stores, Bon Marche (Macy’s), Nordstrom Best (Nordstrom), JC Penny, and Zales Jewelry have operated since the Mall’s opening.

This July 31st, the City of Tukwila, Westfield Southcenter, and the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Southcenter Mall with an evening reception.
