Gurnee Mills is an absolutely huge mall. Depending on who you talk to, it's either a discount mall, an outlet mall, or a travel destination. It's not a discount mall, the prices are more expensive. It's not an outlet mall, that's about ten or twenty miles north, Prime Outlets in Kenosha. So... I'll give it a travel destination, because there are interesting stores like Outdoor World and Rainforest Cafe.

We've been visiting it for many years, once or twice a year. It can be a very frustrating place to visit, because it is designed like the letter "N". If you park at one "end" of the mall, you're stuck walking all the way back through the mall at the end of your shopping day. There used to be some areas you could park where you'd be near an end but also near one of the bends, but these spaces are now mostly consumed by large stores. Sadly, stores seem to be going belly up. The economic downturn might spell the end for this monstrosity, because once it loses a critical mass of stores to attract people, I'm thinking attendance will plummet.

I would find GM much more attractive if they would solve the walking problem, like maybe connecting each endpoint to the more distant bend (making a square out of the N). However, I wonder if the day of the mega-mall has passed, and I suspect that the facility is more likely to just close at some point, a monument to failure.

Gurnee Mills is one of the largest malls I have ever been to in the U.S. It is really big. It feels like you're on a field trip when you're walking through. However, it still holds the same elements of a local mall...just bigger in size and selection.

I Think the mall is great, i always fine great bargains and if you start at one end doing one side and then turn around when you get to the other end and do the other side consider it a great work out. if the walk is too much you can always stop and eat at one of the food courts and rest before taking on the walk on the way back. I just think it would be better if there were more maps for locating store. I would also like more american food at the food courts-too too many oriental restaurants for instants hot dogs, beef sandwich and barbaqued foods.

Pros: everything you need in one place

Cons: not enough american food or location maps posted

A friend and I headed out for back to school shopping because of all hype over this outlet mall. We were hoping to find lots of brand names at outlet prices. What we found was brand names at brand name prices. Everything was nice but was the same cost you would pay at any other store that sells that kind of clothes. It was a long drive for a disappointment.

You have to see this place. If you love shopping you will have a very difficult time resisting this mall. They have designer stores, labels and (get ready) all at outlet store prices! It's right off the expressway so it's convenient, although a bit of a hike if you live in the city. Trust me, it's worth it. The have Lord and Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, and a cinema and restaurants.

I just visited gurnee mill mall, had not been there for 1 year. A lot of the stores I used to like are not longer there. The stores are mostly geared toward the pre-teen and teen markets. With the exception of a few stores, there are not a lot of stores for the mature shopper here anymore. Almost not worth the long car trip anymore.

This mall is huge but the way they have it set up is very inconvenient. I would not reccoment this mall because you end up getting so tired and frustrated. Basically you have to start from one end and get to the other end. There is no easy way around. It gets pretty crowded and parking is a disaster. If you are willing to endure then go for it. I'm sure you are bound to find some deals.

This is one of the largest malls I have been to in a long time. We try to make a weekend trip by Great America one day and the mall and other shopping the next. Unfortunately it is not too m,uch of an outlet mall anymore. Vanity Fair clothing store is half off all itemsand I have found some good sale items like a Tommy Hilfiger purse cheap.

I don't like to go to this mall except for a few stores. There are very few deals at this mall anymore. It seems as if they have gone away from having outlet stores. I get very few deals here anymore.

I don't really like this mall very much. Its so big that it is really hard to get around and find shops. And on the weekends it gets so crowded as well. Even though it has tons of outlets inside, I feel that getting around is too big of a hassle. I definitely prefer smaller sized malls.

This place is nice to get nice and cheap clothes from. It includes so many outlet stores so it is a lot cheaper than big shopping malls. Also, it is located in a convenient place that is accessible to everyone!

This Mall isn't much of a price differenct than a regular mall. Also, it is too long. The worst thing about it is if you park at one end of the mall and walk the whole way through, you have to walk all the way back (I forgot how many miles long this mall is, but it is long). My mom couldn't walk back and I had to go get the car and pick her up. Not recommended if you have senior citizens or little children who cannot walk that far.
