Yorktown Center is a shopping mall located in Lombard, Illinois, United States. It is at the corner of St. Charles Road and Finley Road (U.S Route 34) near Interstate 88 and the James O'Connor Drive exit. The Yorktown Center has always been an open-air facility, but formerly housed Juhl's department store as an indoor mall component until it went out of business on February 4, 1986.
The land that became Yorktown Center was purchased by Henry Hirschfield in 1959 with the intention of creating a new town center for Lombard. Construction began in May 1962 with the grand opening occurring two years later on August 31, 1964. Originally a small outdoor strip mall that also included a Cunningham Drug Store and Lombard Federal Savings & Loan Association (now Chase Bank), it evolved into an enclosed shopping mall and office complex in the 1970s.
Yorktown Center is considered to be one of the most successful malls in America, due to its tremendous success. It attracts approximately 23 million visitors annually and has recently begun a major renovation project after being open for 51 years.
Many stores that have been at Yorktown for many years are moving out for new ones such as New York & Company which moved 10 miles south to Oakbrook Terrace Fashion Outlets in October 2015, Apple Inc., The Gap, Banana Republic, Aéropostale, Justice and Zumiez among others closed down or relocated within the mall itself before this renovation project began.
In April 2017, Yorktown Center announced a major renovation project which includes new entrances, remodeled hallways and restrooms, as well as new landscaping and outdoor amenities. The parking garage will be re-configured to include more spaces and the temporary loss of the second floor is expected to create more room for stores in the main building.
