A Five Below store may be built between Kohl’s and PetSmart in Peru
Peru Mayor Ken Kolowski said Monday the process is in the early stages.
“We’re excited. Anytime we can bring new and exciting retail to Peru, to our region is a positive step,” he said. “More retail growth coming to Peru is always a good thing.”
A planning and zoning commission meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, at Peru City Hall, 1901 Fourth St., to consider a petition to subdivide Kohl’s property and construct a 10,083-square-foot structure to be leased by Five Below.
At Five Below, most items are priced between $1 and $5 and some “extreme value items” are priced beyond $5. Five Below said it specializes in eight categories: style, room, sports, tech, create, party, candy and new & now.
Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Philadelphia, Five Below has 1,300 stores in 42 states.
