Ultimately it would wear out and have to get replaced, Brent said, however the car was nonetheless driveable. Our auto claims service is quick and handy, so you will get back on the street tto your dreams wiuth as little interruption as possible.

I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. Can I simply say what a relief to seek out someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know find out how to convey a difficulty to light and make it important.

Extra individuals must learn this and understand this facet of the story. Pekin Mall had a movie theatre, waaay back in the day about 16 years ago. I have never found another pretzel store where they did this.

Pekin Mall is generally regarded as a joke in the town, although its death did cause some small local businesses to pop up, like a used bookstore. Pekin mall had no current bookstore. ALSO— being as you were there in the s, you missed the best part of Pekin. The high school mascot was the Pekin Chinks for years. Yes, Chink, as in someone from China.

We had he Chinkettes cheerleaders and the Chink Rink iceskating and this went on till about , I believe. Stores in Pekin still sell Chink memorabilia. January 12th, at Also lived at the chink rink. I loved the colors they were super cool at the time and it was a nice mall. The big circle flower bed in the center was a fountain originally. I have a pic of me with a clown who was there for an event going on that was in the newspaper right next to it.

The pretzel place was the best!!! I used to get the pizza pretzel they dipped the face of it in sauce and sprinkled parmesian cheese on top. You are right noone has pretzels like that nor does anyone have karmelcorn as good as theirs was. Also used to go to themovies alot.

When I used to go visit my friends in Pekin after we moved to Florida always had to get a pizza pretzel. Donnie April 30th, at 3: A lot of the mall was not finished. Thats going back some time.

Have more PM stories as well — maybe some other time. Even a murder story!!! June 4th, at 2: July 8th, at 5: December 7th, at 5: Also some optical place when you first walk into the main entrance of the mall — I think a Bard Optical? Rob May 5th, at 7: I reside in Pekin. The old mall is gone and the new place really looks good. The area has really changed and many, many more stores are coming on line in the area.

In its day, the Pekin Mall was a very nice and modern place. As time went on and the larger cities nearby opened their malls, our mall slipped and just was never taken care of or modernized. Charles May 27th, at Despite maybe visits to the Peoria area, somehow I never managed to visit Pekin Mall until today.

It still has the ogiginal dark brick decor on the outside. The third original anchor is occupied by Big Lots and Hobby Lobby. Big Lots and Hobby Lobby only have a couple new stores attached to them. Its easy to drive all around the now-three separate sections of the former mall, and you can spot where the old parking lot ended and was added onto with new asphalt. The TSC store is painted white. Behind the old anchor areas are unpainted as well.

I mentioned the mall recently to a guy who I knew grew up in Pekin. He said most Pekin residents eventually grew to hate the old mall; since it was arranged with three dead-ends, shoppers had to turn around and go back when they reached the far ends of the mall.

At least a two-story mall would have offered different stores on the walk back to the car, but he said this one was just awful if you happened to be parked back at the far end of the mall.

Myrna June 26th, at 7: I live near Pekin, IL. This open air concept is a mall, you just have to leave the store go outside to go to the building next door. The company that built the Shoppes was supposed to do the same for Pekin…. I spent most of my teenage years at all of those malls, never considered Pekin an option, even though it was closer than Bloomington. I do remember people used to go there to get their kids pictures taken with Santa Claus around Xmas…it used to be a big deal, a tradition every year for some families.

My youngest has a softball tournament. I was trying to do a google search to find out if the mall ever got rebuilt so I could take my oldest daughter there between games to hang out and look for clothes. I might take some snap shots if I make it there and email them if someone posts me an email address so I can email an update. Of course Pekin also has a public perception problem in our area Central, IL in that it has a recent history years ago of being racist…not just toward the Orientals but mostly the African-Americans.

I know people from Pekin and not one of them is racist…but the perception that Pekin is a racist community still persists, somewhat. TAD August 2nd, at 5: I remember walking out to see it from the North side of Pekin.

All the business owners from DownTown said it would ruin them, and it did. The ivanhoe was a great hang out. She was having tea, and i was just getting out of the Ivanhoe, drinking that pure Pabst Blue ribbon they had on tap. The mall was ugly, stinky, and the biggest thing to hit Pekin since the Santa clause house on Court street.

You have to remember that Pekin was a sleepy farm town, the biggest thing to come out of Pekin Illinois since Abe Lincoln travelled through was Senator Everette Dirksen. For those not familiar… google him. It was a cool place to be from…. Mike August 17th, at 3: Thanks for the pictures! Jeff Morrissey September 15th, at 8: I grew up in Pekin. I left in 84 going into my Junior year of HS. Yes, when I go back, and look at where the mall once was, all I can think about is how depressed that area is now compared to when I lived there.

Deb September 17th, at 6: OK the denim shop was called the Denim Den. JoAnn Fabrics also had a store down by Lums. The music store was right across from that. What was the name of that store? OH it is on the tip of my toungue…. Great American Shoe Store. Good Times, Good times. Deb, The music store was called Byerly Music. January 12th, at 8: I worked there for four years. Kayla November 5th, at What a trip back in time. I too, remember the opening of the Pekin.

I now live in a city in Northern Colorado. The Mall here is not a place that I take my family to very often. Gang violence is common. Seeing your pictures reminds me of a much safer and simple time when we could go to the mall as teens and safely hang out. It was the failure to update that was unfortunate. Chip November 8th, at Pekin Mall was not the first enclosed mall in Central IL.

Lincoln Square in Urbana is probably older than that. We have been lucky in Central IL that many mall are still alive and well. Hickory Point Mall in Forsyth Decatur may be on a downward slide however. Jonah Norason November 9th, at 5: Gary Anderson December 2nd, at 7: At age 16 I got my first job at the mall. What a fun place to work on Friday nights. I worked there from to The Mall was booming on Friday nights with teenagers.

Then the Mall started to chase the teens away and after that the mall started to decline. What a busy day! Today they have ruined our mall and the history of fine shopping in Pekin.

Gina December 4th, at I am a Pekin naitive. My first job was at Pekin mall in Endicott Johnson shoe store…I loved looking at the pics on the blog and reading some of the comments…. Priceless……I loved the talking plastic Bergners xmas tree…and I do remember some colorful murals that were painted on the wall near Lucas pizza.

Angie December 6th, at I am originally from Pekin. Those pictures are exactly how I remember the mall from 20 years ago. Seeing them brought back so many memories from my chidhood. I had forgotten about so many things like the talking Christmas tree, I too loved it.

Oh and Lucas pizza was so good. I do however remember my Grandfather taking me Christmas shopping there and letting me pick out whatever I wanted. I got the Tiffany album and a Def Leppard tape, I was so excited. He paid for it and as we were leaving the store, the alarm system went off. I was so scared.

They had forgotten to remove the security tab from the album. My two Grandmothers loved Lums so we ate there whenever we visited the mall which was frequent back then. T for the first time at the theater there. I was just back there for a visit at Thanksgiving and we went to Bergners. Thanks again for the memories!

Allan December 6th, at CJ December 9th, at Oh please someone come up with a picture of the naked fat cartoon monster mural from the main entrance area!!?? Any pictures of when the mall was thriving would be so very neat to see! All my friends worked there. It was just a great place to hang out. Bergner's December 24th, at 1: It looks almost modern nowadys. It was established in as P.

January 11th, at Chip December 29th, at 1: Check out the old Bergners sign at Eastland Mall. The store was added in , so the sign probably dates from then. Bergners is on the far side of the mall and only a small portion of the store can be seen at this angle.

For vintage sign lovers, it is worth it. Matt from WI December 29th, at 3: Seen them both in old phone books and ads all the time. Bergner's January 1st, at 8: Bergner's January 1st, at 9: I hope this clears things up for you. Jonah Norason January 1st, at 9: Bergner's January 1st, at A few years later, Proffits Inc.

A few years later, Saks Inc. I know this is a lot of info, but I hope it helps. Sally Foster January 2nd, at 1: What ever happened to traditions like the talking Christmas tree, or their restaurants? Their old script logo? The store looks so much like it used to. Justin January 2nd, at 1: I think my grandpa told me that it is the 3rd oldest in the chain too, so I think your right.

July 19th, at 4: Allan January 2nd, at 5: Jonah Norason January 2nd, at 1: Steven Swain January 2nd, at 6: With a gas canopy, no less. Matt from WI January 2nd, at Steven Swain January 2nd, at In malls where a Firestone was already nearby, the Penney operation was usually closed. Also, Firestone did not take any of the locations that were physically attached to the main Penney store.

In those cases, the Auto Center was converted to storage or sales space. Katelyn January 8th, at 9: I 19 years old and have lived in Pekin my whole life. Cris January 9th, at 9: Not quite like fine wine but none the less, pleasing in some crazy way. I think my iron-on Tshirt log was Rocky Balboa…. Prange Way January 10th, at I recently found your site for the old Pekin Mall. I am from Pekin and can tell you quite a bit about the mall. Currently development is stopped at the mall site, there are about 15 stores there now and still many empty spaces.

The mall is completely outdoors now. Pekin Mall'r January 13th, at 4: I have many good memories of the Pekin Mall. There was always something going on. Whether hanging out with friends, going to the movies, or checking out the attractions — I especially enjoyed the cars shows and boat shows — it was a great asset for the community. I cannot understand how we let it die.

The new mall configuration is not pedestrian friendly. If you want to go from one end to the other, you must drive. There are few sidewalks and no direct walkways to use. A road has been built through the original store entrance which splits the shopping center in two. Chip January 14th, at Cullinan Properties screwed this place up. They did such a great job at the Shoppe of Grand Prairie. ECV is an divided strip plaza. They did the same thing at College Hills in Normal.

Torn down the mall, build a road through the center of the property dividing the anchors. Fill the space with a parking lot and make it impossible to go to all the building without getting runover by a crazy Central IL driver.

College Hills in still half empty after it was re-developed. Aaron January 15th, at 7: I remember the mall well. I know…dating myself and that mall. I worked in Walgreens Restaurant! Yes, Walgreens had a restaurant right across the mall from Lums. Back in the Malls hey day it had alot of good stores.

I met him when I was a waitress at Walgreens. I miss the mall and wish that Pekin could some how have managed to hang on to it instead of the sad little things we have there now.

No matter what, I will never forget those shiny floors. No matter how bad that mall looked those floors were always shiny. Lisa Dierker January 24th, at 1: There were hardly any people there! The store was old, and really needs updating. Now, if it was a Tuesday night or something, it would be understandible. But, it was Saturday! Now instead of bursting at the seams, it has fallen into deep disrepair, and no one was there!

And to top it off, there are almost no stores left at Sheridan Village! Kim m G February 9th, at After the mall opened, I loved going to the Pekin Mall with my mom, sister, and girlfriends. I buried my face into his arm when the huge toothy shark turned to us! Of course, I always did all of my Christmas shopping at the wonderful gift shops. Wish I could remember the name of the shop down the steps from the popcorn shop, because it was my favorite.

You could count on a delightful scent of fresh popped popcorn and caramel corn at the Karmel Korn shop. Not sure how the tellers at the CEFCU credit union worked with the constant smell of delicious popcorn smells next door.

When I was a junior in high school, I applied at a clothing store no one has mentioned, the Paul Harris shop. I worked there until I went away to college. I loved this store with the mirrored tile facade and trendy clothes. They, also, had the hippest musack. She was the first girl at Pekin High to wear a 12 carat gold fingernail!

She had to work to pay for that baby! As the roof continued to decay, more and more profitable shops moved out and into the new two story mall in Peoria. After college, I left this area for almost 20 years. It was so unbelievable! Lastly,as for the interior design and colors of the mall, it was modern to us. This mall did NOT warp our design perception.

I am now a successful corporate facility interior designer with a large local company. All I have to say is: Thank you, again, for this stroll through time! I plan on sending this link to all my Pekin friends! The mall location has gone through a drastic transformation, and it is much better than it was a few years back….. January 23rd, at 3: Thanks for noting that the colors were not truly warping..

When the mall was new, I thought it was a magical, beautiful place! It was the 70s after all. And I agree about the cyclical nature of color and fashion.

I travel quite a bit and note that many of the new, trendy hotels are decorated with those bright orange, lime and sunny yellow colors! JW February 9th, at 3: It was so amazing when it was open.

But some of my tumbling lessons were on Sundays when it was closed. It was kind of creepy but cool because all of the stores had those metal bar door going across them and all the halls were dark. LA February 10th, at They sold records…[remember those?

Their big store was in downtown Peoria. They had the restaurant in the Pekin mall, and one on Knoxville Avenue in Peoria. The mall also had a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream store. They used to wash the 3 gallon ice cream cartons and place them in front of the store for people to take home FREE!

Two of those cartons held all our scarves and mittens in the coat closet. January 15th, at 7: My parents bought the ice cream store franchise when the mall first opened in 71, the fall of my freshman year we did not live in Pekin but in a town about 15 mi away.

My entire family worked there or spent time in the mall while we were working. My mother made all the cakes ice cream and combo cake and ice cream. We always washed out the ice cream tubs and set them out front for people to take. For some reason people loved them! I remember all the other stores mentioned.

The sale paid for college for me and my siblings. The mall was good to us. The store looks so retro and hideous now but it was new at the time. The pictures are so familiar it is eerie. Our classmates worked at the shoe store across the mall aisle from us. Cannot remember whether it was Nobles or Kinneys. Thanks to the author of this article for the photos! Thanks to all ice cream fans for my college education!

CL February 11th, at But in order to take the garbage out you have to walk through the old mall up towards bergners and out that side door! Bergners has now put a wall up between the old mall and its store but its still cool to see the old mall is still sitting in all its retro glory! Teresa February 12th, at 5: I live in Louisiana, but have been there a few times as a kid.

I remember the Orange Bowl, they had good pizza and some orange icee drink. Linda Bach February 17th, at 7: Back then, the mall was the only shopping in the Pekin area except for the K-mart which was nearby.

One of my best memories of the mall: If you ordered from their catalog, you were automatically entered into a contest. To make a long story short, I won the car. It had to be ordered from a local Chevy dealer. It had a big sign on it saying I had won it in their sweepstakes. When it finally came time to take the car home, we had to go there as the mall was closing and wait until the mall was completly empty. Then they wanted my husband to drive the car up a ramp, down the hall to an exit large enough to drive a car through it.

I said I wanted to drive it out. Well, I convinced them that I knew how do drive a stick and off I went driving through the mall. By the way, the car was a real lemon and I hated it. Prange Way February 17th, at My parents had a Citation from before when I was born until I was about 7.

Most of my memories of it involve not being able to see over the dashboard, but it seemed to be kind of a lame, cheap car. I was actually kind of embarrassed of it because it was a weird swoopy shape and not sporty at all.

Kathie February 18th, at 2: Thanks for the memories, I was born and raised in the outskirts of Pekin, and I remember shopping DownTown going from store to store at Christmas time, all of the decorated store fronts, and I even visited the Santa House on the court house lawn. Now those were the days! Then the Mall came to town and that became our place to shop. The thing I miss most is the old Down Town Pekin.

Val February 19th, at 1: It was a shame to see the Mall go down the tubes, You could do almost ALL your shopping there at one time.. I myself do not like what they have done with it. But what can you do. Todd February 22nd, at I kinda remember opening day. I had a polaroid picture with him and he autographed it. I still have it today. Lucas pizza was good. I guess back then for a kid from a small farmer town it was an exciting place to go on the weekend.

July 30th, at Kathy February 23rd, at 4: I worked at Murphy Mart for the last two years they were at the mall. It was a lot of fun to work the checkouts by the restaurant and the opening to the rest of the mall.

I used to love the candy bins at Swiss Colony. They had like 6 bins of candy named after alcoholic drinks. I had to ride it! The Music Shop was down by Lums. It may have been a different name before that. I loved the mall. It was so big and had so many stores with such a variety of things to shop for. It was so outrageous! I miss the mall. Ryan February 26th, at 3: I grew up in Pekin and that being said, i grew up at the mall just like every other kid.

I was completely shocked when i moved back to the area in after being gone for only 6 years to see how much it had changed!! What a relic though.

The pictures you put on here have brought back quite a few memories. Jeff March 17th, at 2: My family moved to Pekin when I was only 4 years old, right about the time that the mall opened.

It was the very first enclosed shopping mall I ever remember, and it was quite the place as I remember it. My family left Pekin when I was around 10 years old or so, back in Was involved with that for a few years.

I forget the store that was on the other corner. Kinney Shoes was also near there. Have never been able to find that smell again! The grill had chandeliers with the bouncing orange candle flicker lightbulbs. Further toward JCPenney, I also remember a wig store up near the corners by the big ramp. JCPenney was a big store as I remember it, and they had a big sporting goods and electronics area where they sold Jokari , a candy counter, and an area with records.

I remember buying several 45 singles there as a kid…. Bergners also had a special toy department at Christmas time, near the back, and Santa always came with his real reindeer. And that talking Christmas tree… Gotta love that! I remember the place always being somewhat crowded most every Friday night. Shannon March 18th, at 3: Every kid I know who grew up in Pekin had some kind of game for hopping around on those stripes. To me, the green was alligators and the blue was water — and I could swim so I opted for the blue.

What a great site this is, with great memories! Jeff March 19th, at 4: The other things I remember were the sidewalk sales where the stores would have racks and displays in the mall areas with all kinds of specials. Now that I think, JCPenney also may have had a restaurant situated somewhere near the rear parking lot entrance. At least a hot-dog counter or something like that. I also liked the big chocolate chip cookies, but not as much as that danish!

I do also remember one other big shopping area in Pekin at the time we left — and it was pretty new too. Anybody else remember that place? Jeff, Totally remember trick-or treating and sidewalk sales! Kathy Jean March 20th, at 8: Kurt March 21st, at 1: I obtained microfilm prints of articles from the Pekin Daily Times, dated August 2nd and August 4th These were courtesy of the Pekin Public Library thanks! Both articles were about the opening of the Pekin Mall. It also included a site map showing all the original stores and their locations.

Unfortunately due to the microfilming process most of the articles are of very poor quality, and one is almost unreadable. Posting scans of the copies I got would be useless so I am going to transcribe what I can read and post it here. Anyway, as a teaser here is the store list sans the diagram for now.

Kurt March 21st, at 6: OK, thanks to labelscar. I had to redraw it due again to the poor quality of the copy I received, but it was good enough to put this together.

I used a scan of the original title block and Pekin Mall logo. You can find it here:. Wow, looking at that map makes it seem like it was just yesterday the mall opened, but at the same time it seems so long ago. Jeff March 21st, at 8: Wow, Kurt, thanks for putting the map up!! That sure fills in a lot of blanks for me!

Here are my thoughts:. I could be wrong though. Denim Den later located across from the narrow hallway from the restrooms and admin offices I believe. THAT became a big store for the designer jeans crowd! The unnamed store right next to it was 20th Century Tuxedo I believe.

Jonah Norason March 21st, at 9: Thanks for the map. Kurt March 22nd, at 7: Austin March 30th, at Meghan April 10th, at Wow this was like a trip down memory lane.

And the 5, 10 and 15 store that was a name from my past that I had completely forgotten about. Dione April 10th, at It was where I bought Ghostbusters, my first cassette tape. I remember my grandpa buying me my first piece of Michael Jackson memorabilia from the Iron on T Shirt store. It was where I saw a slew of childhood movies for the first time.

Popeye, Annie and E. Lums for dinner with the grandparents, chocolate pudding with a tiny bit of whipped cream on it!

I worked at Stuarts in college, learned there that I could never work in retail! The perms at Regis stinking up the place. Hot Sam on my lunch break….. Funny thing is, I was never allowed to hang at the mall. Only when I spent the night at a friends…how harmless that seems to me now compared to what teenagers are doing I know, I work with them everyday!

Village Plantation, when it was on its downfall…Thanks for this blog! Joann April 13th, at 7: WOW Brad, We are all having such good memories about the mall.

The Pics, the colors, the connection! I was able to connect to alot of memories that brought back good feelings, great experiences and then BAM…. TJ April 17th, at 1: I was in Pekin over the weekend and got into a discussion with my little brother 34 years old now about the old mall.

I grew up in Sunset and my friend and I rode our bikes there several times a week. We would get our candy at the Walgreens and then see both features at the movie theater. Well, they moved and I not only went in there, but I worked there, too. I remember my regulars coming in after their morning walk around the mall.

Bold patterns and colors were all the rage back then. Of course, I never could explain the mural of naked blobs…but I remember we would go into hysterical giggles when we noticed that someone had stuck gum in strategic places. It drove my mom crazy. People can think what they will of the Pekin Mall, but for those of us that grew up in that sleepy little farm town, that Mall was connected to some of our fondest childhood memories!

It had a bunch of pictures around the board if I remember right of the inside of the Pekin Mall in its early days. December 16th, at Megan April 19th, at My family has a copy of Pekinopoly.

Brad there sadly summed up what a lot of people in Pekin are like, really racist. I grew up in Pekin and it was in junior high when they started tearing the mall down.

It reached nearly to the ceiling of the mall and had several hundred hand carved horses. I remember first seeing it when I was either seven or eight… The last time it was there was when my now 12 year old brother was 4, so about I looked forward to riding that carousel every single Christmas.

Ahh, I miss it. When I buy a new book, I usually intend to read it, or at least start to, that day, not a week later. TJ April 24th, at 9: Apparently I do have a better memory than my family. They told me I was making the game up. Sadly, I have no idea what happened to it over the years. PJoe April 25th, at 3: I remember my wife first told me she would go out with me there.

She also worked at the Zales before they closed; it was the only store at one end of the mall. But anyways thanks for the memories. Chris May 5th, at 1: I grew up in East Peoria in the late 70s and all through the 80s. We used to hang out at Pekin Mall all the time. I remember going to movies there on saturdays. In the 90s most of these were sold off to become Co-Op Records. Ed May 13th, at 7: Boy, this really brings back memories. I grew up in the Pekin Mall.

My friends and I were out there every day. I asked my wife out for the first time, in the old Sears, almost 34 years ago. We never really thought of it as an ugly mall. But you have to remember, this was in the 70s. There was quite a bit of wild colors at that time. Green was one of the most popular colors around. Looking at the photos and the map, kind of makes me sad. Oh well, I guess you have to go with the changes.

Ed Ruskin May 20th, at 8: Mark Wilson June 3rd, at 3: Man I remember the Pekin Mall! Fondly, embarrassingly and nostalgic all at once. For some stupid reason I was not allowed to go the mall and hang out.

I would always sweat it out if I saw someone my parents knew which in the thriving populated metropolis of Pekin, was just about every time — so it was always an adventure — yet I did it several times a week. I can recall when there was nothing near the mall — then came some bank, and some development across the street I think it was a lumber yard and McDonalds.

They used to have the albums displayed 1- 50 I think it went that high. Then to top off the night, when the movie was over and I had to call my mom to pick me up. Boy did we show the phone company who was boss. Matt from WI June 3rd, at 4: They did have some American faire as well like burgers and fries.

SMB June 9th, at IIRC, there was also a Musicland but i may be confused.

I worked at Lums from or thereabouts. The Ivanhoe was a total dive with a darkly lit ambiance-perfect for a beer bar in a mall! Friday nights were pretty amazing with the amount of high school kids hanging out, sober and otherwise.

I was a Monicals sp? I did shed a tear when I came back to town post college for a visit and the mall was gone for all intents and purposes. February 3rd, at 6: Kim June 16th, at 8: I worked at that mall for over 20 years at the Waldenbooks. I was lucky enough to get out a few months before Waldens closed them. My friends there told me of how the company treated everyone slike garbage while they had to close up their store.

Typical of a company to expect everything from their employees, yet dump on them in the end. Also, we kept getting the runaround from the company that bought the mall…so it never seemed to us that they tried to do anything except make excuses for not fixing anything…for several years people in the stores there were unsure of havimng a job.

I remember the bathrooms at the theater were upstairs all by themselves kindof freaky for a kid. We had our after prom event there, where we stayed there all night and played games and ate.

The talking x-mas tree at Bergners was a hoot. I used to climb inside of it and freak my mom out as she was frantically looking for me. Alladians Castle was the first place that I ever saw skeet ball. That candy store down on that end of the mall that had hundreds of different types of candies.

Michael August 1st, at The only thing i miss from the old mall would have to be Walden Books and Alladins castle…without walden there are no good bookstores in pekin!!

Tim O'Brien September 4th, at 1: This page is a blast from the past….. Graduated in ; The drinking age was 18 years old. We used to hang out at the Ivanho — a bar located on one creepy end of the mall.

Visiting home from the University, We staggered out of the mall way too many times. There was nothing else to do in Pekin Il. A nice town to be from — far from. Mary September 12th, at 3: I grew up in that dreary town…. These pictures make me extremely happy that I now live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Julie September 18th, at There was also a theatre in that mall — easiest to access from the backside of the building. Kevin September 23rd, at Northwoods was okay, but Pekin Mall always seemed more relaxed and comfortable. We often parked outside Walgreens and walked through it to get to Lums for the evening meal.
