Kennewick's Columbia Center mall is kicking off the back-to-school shopping season Saturday.
Simon Property Group Inc., a retail real estate company that owns Columbia Center mall, is holding a series of "Back At It" events geared toward tweens and teens at about 55 malls nationwide, including in Kennewick.
"This year, we are very excited to be teaming up with Teen Vogue, the authentic source for young trendsetters interested in emerging fashion, beauty and pop culture," said Jordan Youngs, Columbia Center mall's director of marketing and business development.
Those who attend will receive a Teen Vogue and Simon Malls Trend Guide, featuring fashion tips for some of the trendiest looks, along with free gifts for the first 300 who register.
The Saturday event also will feature a fashion show starting at 2 p.m., with local students modeling clothing from some of the mall's shops.
Community youth organizations plan a meet-and-greet at the mall, and the mall will have a job fair featuring seasonal jobs open at mall stores.
