Spencer Gifts in Lakeforest Mall to Close in September

Spencer Gifts has announced it will be closing its Lakeforest Mall location on September 24.  Spencer’s is one of the last national chain stores remaining at the mall, leaving only Aeropostale, Bath & Bodyworks, Champs Sports, Finish Line, and Macy’s. A representative from Bath & Body works tells us that the Lakeforest Mall location would be closing before the end of the year.

Spencer’s in known for selling novelty items like lava lamps, shot glasses, t-shirts, and 18+ items like lingerie and sex toys. According to their website, Spencer’s is “the mall destination for entertainment, excitement, and fun” and has been in business of over 65 years.

“Starting out as a mail order company in 1947, Spencer’s opened its first retail store in 1963 at New Jersey’s Cherry Hill Mall. From the outset, Spencer’s quickly became an oasis within the mall environment offering our guests an entertaining experience both through its merchandising and product mix and grew to a national chain by the mid-’70s. In 2003, under new management, Spencer’s lifted the bar higher and set out to reinvent itself. Remaining true to its roots, this reinvention set Spencer’s on the path to greatness in a subtle shift from Spencer Gifts to Spencer’s in newly re-designed funky, industrial spaces with an award-winning downtown club look.

Over time, Spencer’s has become a one-stop trend shop for the latest pop culture styles. From TV shows and films to video games and anime, you’ll find a little bit of everything at our stores.

Spencer’s now operates over 650 stores throughout the United States and Canada, and is proud to be one of the longest running shows in the mall. Strong operating disciplines combined with our unique merchandising formula underpins our continued growth, as Spencer’s has become a staple of the mall culture. Walking into a Spencer’s reminds you that not everything has to be so boring and serious all the time. Because, at the end of the day, life’s a party–and we’re makin’ it fun!”
