Jeep, you are correct on Jubilee Cafe's Peoria location. It was doing good business. I guess the land value was just to tempting. Like we need another gas station, a failed donut shop (now cheap glasses place with horrible advertisements). It was a good place to eat, especially for breakfast.
I grew up in this area. It was Dixie Cafe, then Oogies, then Jubilee. There was also a craft stor next to/attached to it. I'm also positive the gas station was always there...but just something else. Who remembers when Silo was there...? What did they sell...appliances? That strip mall needs an upgrade...except for the Famous Footwear the rest looks awful and is dumpy..as are the businesses. I'd heard Sonic wanted the Krispy Kreme now Stanton Optical spot but it was already taken...and before or after..they also eyed the Glen/Univ spot but Starbucks got it.
p.s what is w/ strip malls/res going in already crowded shopping areas...i.e. Qdoba, Panda Express, Chipoltle, Chik-Fil-A? Put something in that dang ShopKo (which the sign on Allen did/has said sale pending for a loongg while).
