A very large single level mall. Lots of variety. Not a high end mall. Tries to be a discount mall with high end names at discount prices. Not my favorite mall. I have no problems with large malls but easier to navagate when they are...More

Gurnee Mills is the second largest shopping mall in Illinois, after Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg and ahead of Oak Brook Center in Oak Brook. While purists might argue that it doesn't have as many big-name brand businesses on the marquee, they would have to agree...More

Open every day from 10:00 a.m. till 9:00 p.m. When Gurnee Mills opened in 1991, it was just as large and exhausting -- but WAY more interesting.....and had WAY more bargains. It actually caused the demise of another nearby shopping center. (Alas, poor Lakehurst!) Nowadays,...More

A few nice attractions but over all seems to be going down hill. Lots of options to eat, nice theaters, great Bass pro, but mall seemed a bit seedy in some areas. Need more healthy food options, security that inspires confidence (not insecuity). Improving image...More

Best to visit this huge mall when it’s not real busy or you will find it’s like rush hour traffic with people! Lots of stores and food prepare minimum of two hours to visit great exercise to walk the mall

We found the stores that we wanted for shopping, but so much of the mall is empty. It is huge, so be prepared to walk or do some searching to park near your destination store. Free parking ll around. Plenty of restaurants surround the mall.

Walking the entire length of this mall, I noticed how many of the units are empty. Although this is cleverly disguised by having displays in the window to make the mall look like it has more stores than it really does. The entrances to these...More

Gurnee Mills is for the most part indoors and all stores connected. There are outlier stores and restaurants as well that are not connected and you'd need to drive over to those e.g. Portillo's.

No, they have wheelchairs free of charge, but only if you prove via a government ID that you need one.
