In Addison, Illinois, located on Route 20 and the Veterans Memorial Expressway (Interstate 355) is a small shopping center, with two big box stores, two smaller stores, and a few restaurants. It was not always like this, what originally was here effected the outcome of what is here now.
In the 70s, when the chain Venture was prospering in several big cities in the Midwest, one of the many Chicago locations was built here. In 1998, Venture closed and Kmart took over, and some point shortly before that, Sam's Club and Best Buy opened.
In the 1993 map, Venture, Best Buy, Sam's Club and Denny's can be seen.
Sam's Club was renovating the store during the summer.
Here is the Best Buy store during its liquidation:
In these pictures, the Office Depot was still open, but I guess not for long.
In November 2014, the Office Depot was closed and was being cleaned out. I later learned a Goodwill Center was opening in 2015.
A lot has changed here at this shopping center over the years, particularly in the last 3 years.
