Northland Mall- (Sterling, IL)



With some research, there doesn't seem to be a lot of history on this mall, although its 2 hours from Chicago,  on RT-2 off I-88. There isn't much to say in regards to where the mall really began and what its like today, which is why blogs like this exist, to uncover the unknown.

When I went to Northland mall in the summer of 2012, it was a warm Sunday afternoon and the mall closed at 6:00, upon arrival, there were only 3 cars in the lot, before walking in, I didn't know what to expect, yet it was a very small, quite mall plotted virtually in the middle of nowhere, surrounding farm towns and serving the village of Sterling, Illinois.

Most of the mall was vacant, but some stores, the usual empty mall stores, were in here, shops and independently owned clothing stores.

Here are the pictures of the interior of the mall:










There was also a Kmart across the street, the pictures below are from July 2012, Sears announced in October of 2013 that the Kmart would closed by January 2014.
Since closed
