HomeGoods to call Kennedy Mall Home



One of the nation’s most popular destination for housewares and home décor is on its way to Dubuque, Iowa.  HomeGoods will debut at Kennedy Mall in the near future.  The new HomeGoods will occupy a spacious 24,217 square foot location next to HuHot Mongolian Grill.  Books-A-Million, which is currently located in that spot, will be moving to a new 12,212 square foot space that in part of the former Younkers store.  Both HomeGoods and Books-A-Million will be accessible from both the exterior of the mall and the interior concourse.  Another popular shop, Captured on Canvas, will relocate to a new, larger location across from Bath & Body Works.


Work is currently underway to create the new store spaces for HomeGoods and Books-A-Million.  An exact opening date for both has not been established but will be announced in the coming months.


            HomeGoods offers an ever-changing mix of merchandise, including furniture, rugs, lighting, soft home, decorative accessories, tabletop, cookware, and much more.
