Does This Store Closure Spell The End of an Eastern Iowa Mall?
A photo began circulating Facebook on Tuesday, August 1st of one of the anchor stores at the mall. The home decor super store located at 2060 Crossroads Boulevard now has a banner spread across the building.
It reads "CLOSING: This location only..."
According to ScrapeHero, only 2 of the 264 At Home locations are in the Hawkeye State.
This Crossroads store was the second At Home store location to open in the state of Iowa. Back when it opened several years ago, the big box store brought 25 jobs to Waterloo.
Including the department store, there are 22 businesses/groups that are a part of the Crossroads Mall in Waterloo. This includes the Crossroads Marcus Theater, Applebee's, Bath & Body Works, and Finish Line.
Over the past few years, stores at this mall have been closing at a very rigorous pace.
2018 ~ Yonkers Closure
2019 ~ Sears Closure
2021 ~ Buckle Closure
We reached out to At Home store officials but have yet to hear back on the store closing. In addition, we reached out to officials from Waterloo Crossroads Mall and they had no comment about the situation at this time.
There appear to be no other plans for more store closures at the mall either.
If there is any additional information about the closure of the store, we will make sure to bring that to you as soon as possible.
