Claire's moving within mall

Contractors put up a marquee at Claire's new location at the Cross County Mall in Mattoon on Monday.

MATTOON -- The Claire's shop at the Cross County Mall is scheduled to be closed today (Tuesday, June 25) through Thursday as it prepares to reopen in a new location there on Friday.

The Cross County Mall reported that the Mattoon Claire's is moving east from its longtime storefront to a new location three doors away, on the east side of GNC. This newly renovated location had housed a seasonal display of Christmas miniatures in recent years, but has been vacant otherwise for many years.
