[Dead Malls] in Illinois Active and Closed
As far as I know, these are the "dead" malls that are still operating in the state of Illinois, based on my knowledge of visiting every mall in the state.
Click on any of the malls below and it will redirect you to my original post of the mall.
Alton Square mall- Alton
Charlestowne mall (Quad St. Charles)- St. Charles
Sandburg mall- Galesburg
River Oaks Center- Calumet City
Machesney Park Mall- Machesney Park (Rockford)
Lincoln Mall- Freeport
Oak Mill Mall- Niles
Belvidere Mall- Waukegan
Village Mall- Danville
***I have sadly not been to these three, the last three malls in the state I have not photographed. SoI do not stand to my word just yet that I have been to "every" mall in Illinois.
Hickory Point Mall- Forsyth (Decatur)
Illinois Star Centre- Marion
University Mall- Carbondale
Otherwise, here are the malls that I have been to before closing, now they are closed or demolished.
Evergreen Plaza- Evergreen Park: closed and has since been demolished.
Lincoln Mall- Matteson: entire mall closed except for anchor Carson Pirie Scott.
Deerbrook Mall- Deerfield: interior closed off for redevelopment.
Here is an article from to the Tinley Park Patch from March 2014 on a complete list of dead and long gone malls in Illinois.
