700-776 E. Rollins Rd
Round Lake Beach, IL 60073
Typical suburban retail strip originally anchored by OMNI Superstore (later Dominick’s Fresh Store) and Walmart. Lost Dominick’s in 2007 – cited as “underperforming”, and Walmart in 2009 to a new supercenter about a mile north. Some tenants lingered until Meijer announced plans to build a new store on the site. Explored during the early stages of demo thanks to a snoozing security guard. Both anchors and the L-shaped strip connecting the two were torn down; Meijer now occupies that site. A small strip closest to Rollins Road remains with tenants, and still bears the Mallard Creek name.
