Ah, the mall. I think every 80s/90s kid has fond memories of days spent at the good ole’ mall.
We’re lucky in my “view” as our community has a solid mall (Hilltop Mall) with over 35 stores and 200 workers. 12 of those businesses are local – which means they would love your support! I see many favorites on this list!
- Buckle – headquartered in Kearney
- CR toys
- Exact Eye Care
- Grandpa’s Corner
- Grow Nebraska
- Ideal Furniture
- Imperial Palace
- Kasans Case Shop
- Sequel Bookshop
- Small Cakes
- Sporting Edge
- Sports Village
- The Bandwagon, LLC
