Northwoods is the local inside shopping mall for Peoria. In addition to the several anchor stores (Famous Barr, Sears, JC Penney's), there are plenty of smaller retail shops and boutiques. Although there is plenty of parking, the lot is very difficult to navigate and tends to cause traffic jams. There are several food court options and a Gloria Jean's if you get a coffee craving. The mall itself is a little on the old side, but Famous Barr and the large variety of stores make this shopping center worthwhile.
