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.


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]
