Merrillville-based ChicagoLand Popcorn has announced plans to open a second location within Lake Central Plaza in St. John, Indiana. The approximately 1,500-square-foot store is scheduled to open this summer by August. It's conveniently located on Route 41 and 82nd Lane approximately two miles south of Route 30 across from Lake Central High School, and two miles north of the Shrine of Christ's Passion, a premier attraction in NWI.

ChicagoLand Popcorn joins more than 25 existing retailers and restaurants. The store opening coincides with the completion of the final Phase of the Lake Central Plaza development. "We look forward to adding a new location that is more convenient for our customers who live in and near St. John," said Dwayne Walker, president of ChicagoLand Popcorn. "We're excited to bring our flavors, event services, corporate gifts, and our established brand of customer service to this key geographic area of our expansion strategy."
