Amazon Announces Fulfillment Center in North Pekin Amazon purchases 100,000 warehouse in North Pekin with plans to open distribution center in 2022. Pekin, IL- Amazon Prime deliveries will be arriving a little bit faster for Pekin area residents. Web-based retail and delivery giant Amazon plans to take over a 100,000-square-foot warehouse at 1961 Edgewater Drive in North Pekin. The business will be a "fulfillment center," and Amazon plans to open next year, according to a press release from the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council.

While the business has historically been known to sell out as early as 6:00 and 7:00 a.m., Jacqueline and Rick aim to keep doors open until 10:00 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Rick,

But a plot twist to a dream dating back over 14 years ago helped a vision become a reality in 2021: The Bunker Indoor Golf Lounge. What is an “indoor golf lounge” exactly? The Bunker hosts indoor, large-scale golf simulators: a big city offering in our Midwestern, small town of Pekin. Oh, and there’s a full-service bar to boot. “We’re really lucky to have great golf courses in Pekin, and now we can enjoy indoor golf too,” says part-owner Eric. Eric lays out the history of the idea and explains he has wanted to open a golf simulator hang-out spot for over a decade, but the technology- and price- just wasn’t there yet. Eric continues, “I toured a lot of simulators in the Chicago area and then was waiting for the right opportunity.” Eric and business partner Chris checked out many property locations over the years, including the old dance and tumbling building on
