Leavenworth Plaza is an indoor shopping center in Leavenworth, Kansas. Originally opened more than 40 years ago in 1967, the mall was anchored by J.C. Penney, Montgomery Ward and Safeway. Duckwall-ALCO Retail Stores added a store in 1972.[1]

Montgomery Ward became Sears in 1987.[2] A movie theater was added in 1993 after Duckwall-ALCO closed.[3] J.C. Penney closed in 2003,[4] and Sears later closed as well. The mall's original owners, Copaken, White & Blitt, sold it to Colliers Turley Martin Tucker in 2008.[5] The property is currently managed by Dial Properties [6]

The movie theater closed in 2010. Westlake Ace Hardware still operates in a portion of the building.[7] As of 2013, the only remaining tenants are Ace Hardware, GNC, Curves, RadioShack, and Cato Corporation.[8]
