Quincy Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Quincy, Illinois. It features amc Slumberland Furniture, with two vacant anchors last occupied by Bergner's and Sears. The mall is managed by Cullinan Properties.

History[edit]

The mall was originally a shopping center called Miracle Mile, built in the 1950s. In 1978, it was expanded into an enclosed property anchored by Bergner's and Sears, with J. C. Penney added on in 1982.[2] In 2006, Cullinan Properties bought the mall from Casto.[3] Six years later, Cullinan asked for the city of Quincy to expand a redevelopment agreement made in 2006.[4] J. C. Penney announced that it would close the Quincy Mall store by April 2015.[5] After its closure, its space was occupied by Slumberland Furniture two years later. The Bergner's store was closed and liquidated in August 2018 following the cessation of Bergner's parent company Bon-Ton.[6]

The parent company of the final original anchor store, Sears Holdings, announced the closure of the Sears store and automotive center on May 17, 2018.[7] After that and Bergner's closed, Slumberland Furniture and Amc was the only anchor left.
