P.F Changs, one of the first free standing restaurants near the Columbia Center Mall is set to close their doors by the end of January.

The company issued a statement that reads -  “It has been our pleasure serving guests for the last 10 years at our Kennewick location, however, our lease has expired and we will be closing on Jan. 21,”

P.F. Chang's has been in the same location at 8108 W. Gage Blvd in Kennewick since opening it's doors in 2007.

There are roughly 50 employees that will be displaced but the company has offered to transfer employees to other restaurants if desired. The Tri-Cities has only one location between our three cities.

Columbia Center sold the land over 10 years ago and isn't the current owner of the property.

It's always sad to see a closure here in the Tri-Cities.
