From big-name retailers like IKEA, Macy's and Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World to smaller boutiques such as Have to Have, Wine and Cheese by TCC, and The Book Mouse, or the I&M Canal Heritage Corridor covers shopping as diverse as the lansdscape. The Promenade Bolingbrook, Louis Joliet Mall, and Peru Mall are your one-stop shopping and dining centers, complete with special events and concerts throughout the year.

When you're looking for something not-quite new, Mill Town Market or Morris Antique Emporium will meet your needs. Plus, there are dozens of small shops like Uniques Antiques and Countryside Village in towns along the Corridor. Montana Charlie's Little America Flea Market is an outdoor extravaganza of new and old items, furniture and food. Open on weekends, treasure hunters will find everything they desire - maybe even some Route 66 collectibles and memorabilia.

Made in Illinois, August Hill and Illinois River wineries offer tastings, gourmet food items and wine accessories, and of course, your favorite wine to take home by the bottle or case.

Whether you're browsing or on a mission, the I&M Canal Heritage Corridor has every item on your list!
