New box store coming to Streator

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2016

The Northpoint Shopping Center in Streator could soon be a busy place again.

The Streator City Council had a special meeting Tuesday night to talk about a Big R Store locating in the plaza. Plans are for the store to open up next year in parts of the old Kmart, CVS and Radio Shack buildings. This weekend a new movie theater is set to open in the shopping center.

To help attract the Big R to Streator, the city council has worked out redevelopment agreements using bonds and a TIF district. The closest Big R to the Illinois Valley is in Morris.

The company sells farm and livestock merchandise along with home and garden items, clothing and sporting goods.
