The Peru Mall is a 78-store shopping center located in Peru, Illinois. It is the largest mall within 50 miles. The mall is anchored by Bergner's, Sears, JCPenney, and Marshalls, plus a movie theater.[1] Directly outside the shopping center are Applebee's and Subway restaurants. The 465,000-square-foot (43,200 m2) shopping center is also the largest mall within a 55-mile (89 km) radius and serves as the major commercial center in the city of Peru.

History[edit]

Rubloff Company of Chicago built the mall in 1973 and 1974. It originally featured Bergner's and Montgomery Ward.[2] The mall later gained J.C. Penney as a third anchor, and underwent a renovation in 1989.[3] Sears later replaced the former Montgomery Ward, and Marshalls was added in 2006. MC Sports was also in the mall until it moved in 2007.[4]
