===North Henderson Street===
 
The other major shopping district in Galesburg is the area around North [[Henderson Street]] and [[Carl Sandburg Drive]].  This is the more typical big-box [[suburb]]an shopping area, and generally you have to access it by car.  It features the [[Carl Sandburg Mall]], which is basically a [[Sears]], [[K-Mart]], [[JC Penney]], and [[Bergner's]] with a few shops in the hallways between them.  A [[Hy-Vee]] grocery store is there, and there is a [[Target]] just west of Henderson on Carl Sandburg.  The [[YMCA]] and the [[Showplace 8]] movie theater are further along Carl Sandburg, near the intersection with [[Fremont St.]]  There is a [[Staples]] on National Blvd., but the turnoff is confusing and half the time you'll end up on [[Highway 34]], so it's easier to head to the [[Lowe's]] parking lot off Carl Sandburg east of Henderson, and cut through there.  Further south on Henderson, there is a sex shop, [[Romantix]], located at the intersection of Henderson and Losey streets.  There is also a standalone [[Hy-Vee Wine and Spirits]] on Henderson, and an [[Econofoods]].  There are several restaurants along the road, including [[Old Peking]], [[New China Buffet]], the [[Rib Shack]], [[Perkins]], [[La Gondola]], and fast food restaurants like [[Taco Bell]] and [[Arby's]].

===Meth Lab District===

This is one of the sketchier areas of Galesburg, and, lucky for us, it borders Knox on the south and west.  [[Sigma Chi]]'s house, for instance, used to be a [[crackhouse]], and directly behind it there was a [[meth lab]] that was torn down.  The [[Monmouth Blvd.]] area just off the northwest corner of campus is a major hotspot, and [[Quick Sam's]] is a major gathering point for a host of strange people.  The [[Galesburg Police Department|police]] make an appearance several times a week, at least.
