Mattoon Rural King announces move to Cross County Mall


MATTOON, Ill. (WAND) - Rural King is moving its Mattoon location from its current freestanding store to the Cross County Mall.

It is part of Rural King Realty's efforts to revitalize the mall that has struggled to keep stores over the years. It took ownership in late 2017.

Rural King will move to the former Sears space to drive more traffic to the mall and other businesses in the area.

Construction will begin in August 2018, and the company plans to move in January 2019.

The current store, located at 4216 Dewitt Avenue, will continue to serve as a distribution center, and the headquarters will be expanded into the current Rural King store space.
