On August 16, 2019 the Village joined The RoomPlace for the grand opening of their newest location in Town Center Mall. RoomPlace Chairman Bruce Berman was joined by Washington Prime’s CEO and a number of dignitaries from both companies. Chairman Berman related that he was born and raised in Lincolnwood and was excited to be back in the Village. Mayor Bass and Trustees Ikezoe-Halevi, Klatzco and Sargon attended the ceremonial ribbon cutting, at which Mayor Bass spoke on behalf of the Village and welcomed The RoomPlace to the Lincolnwood business community. The RoomPlace is a Chicago-based furniture store chain with 25 locations in Illinois and Indiana. The new store occupies the former second floor and 40% of the first floor of the former Carson’s that anchored the southeast corner of the Lincolnwood Town Center Mall.
