(updated August 2008)

There are three main shopping districts in Galesburg. Close by is the downtown area (Main Street and side streets around it from Broad to Chambers), which has mostly smaller specialty shops. On Seminary Street just south of Main Street there are some especially nice gift shops, a great bakery (Uncle Billy's Bakery), and an excellent specialty food store (Cornucopia: cheese, grains, spices, sandwiches, "health food"); just north of Main Street is Innkeeper's Coffee, a great source for coffee and tea. The second area is north on Henderson Street. Here you'll find a grocery store (Hy-Vee) and Sandburg Mall.  The Mall has a range of small stores, along with the anchors:  Bergner's (a relatively nice department store), J.C. Penney, Sears, and K-Mart.  Another discount store, Target is on Carl Sandburg Drive, just north of the mall.  Lowe's and Staples are the other side of Henderson St. from the mall; entrances from Carl Sandburg Drive.  A third shopping area is north on Seminary Street, at the intersection of Rt. 34.  Here you'll find a SuperWalmart (including a grocery store) and Menard's.   There's a third major grocery store (another Hy-Vee) on E. Main Street.
