Gurnee Mills reviews
My husband and I took off this weekend and went shopping at Gurnee Mills. Lots of good deals and many new stores. We had a ton of fun just hanging out! more »
Last visited there nearly 20 years ago, and not much changed. Lots of parking, numerous stores for almost every need. Just there really only for the Rainforest Cafe. more »
Beautiful Mall. Clean. Lots of stores. Not many vacant spots 👍 Every store we entered, the staff was super friendly and helpful! Very impressed! I would definitely come back here. Much better experience than my local mall. ❤️
Always loved this mall. They have renovated the food court and it looks great. Management: Please consider doing what Hawthorn Mall is doing to help maintain guests. They are building apartments and common spaces to help bring more people. I love this mall!
