Charlestowne Mall is a two story shopping mall located in St. Charles, Illinois. The mall's anchor stores include Von Maur (formerly JCPenney), Carson Pirie Scott, Kohl's, and Sears. The centerpiece of the second level food court is a two-story carousel.
Charlestowne Mall was built on the far east side of St. Charles. It opened in 1991. Throughout the years since, it remained pretty much the same. The only major changes during its years so far have been the construction of the Cinema on the Northwest Anchor slot of the mall. The only department store change was in 2001, when JCPenney closed their location because it was labeled as an "underperforming" store, however the next year, Von Maur remodeled the anchor and opened a location there. As of 2008, the movie theater and the department stores are doing well, however, the mall tenants are struggling and the mall will likely close if the department stores start closing.
