About 10 minutes east of the mall and at the corner of Airport & Garfield Roads you will find Cherryland Center. The former indoor mall has been converted to a strip mall format and houses Big Lots, Asian Buffett and the Traverse City’s Curling Club. There are plans for bringing more activities to the space.
