Old Country Buffet abruptly closes in Kennewick

The Old Country Buffet by the Columbia Center Mall is now closed.

The all-you-can-eat restaurant announced Tuesday that it recently closed one of its two Kennewick locations after many years.

The remaining assets of the Columbia Center location being offered to the general public through a strategic partnership with Auction Nation, a national online auction company.

“It is sad to see this location close its doors since so many local patrons have been coming here for years,” says Mats Myhre, a spokesperson for Auction Nation.

Myhre described the closure as an “amazing opportunity not only for people in the restaurant industry but for patrons and the general public alike to bid on and purchase the assets from Old Country Buffet”.

Each store contains kitchen equipment, smallwares, furniture and decore.

The other location at 6821 W. Canal Dr. in Kennewick remains open.
