Boutiques @ The Plex gives shoppers access to stores from four counties at one location


You’ve seen the advertisements. You’ve wondered what it’s all about. The Boutiques @ THE PLEX is the shopping opportunity that you’ve been waiting for and it’s almost here!

On Saturday, August 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. you’ll have the opportunity to do all of your small-town shopping in one place, the McKendree Metro Rec Plex.  The new McKendree Metro Rec Plex is located at 205 Rec Plex Drive in O’Fallon, and will be turned into more than 25,000 square feet of shopping heaven.
