Layout is a little funky (shaped like a 'z') so if you are looking for a store you might have to walk twice as much to get to the store and back. Once you get to know the mall you just park near the store and go in to shop. They have the usual anchors, Bass Pro Shop, Khols and... More

There is a large selection of places to shop and some good places to eat in the mall like Ruby Tuesdays and Rainforest Cafe also Portillo's is right outside the mall and many other good restaurants. It is very close to Key... More

The mall is very accommodating and has everything that almost all age ranges could ask for. Seems as though the food courts are in transition of updating and acquiring more to choose from.

The Mills have been open for about twenty years now. It has had a recent upgrade to the wing that ends with Macy's. Many of the stores are the same ones you see in any large mall. The Mills does have a large cinema with lots of screens.

Big mall with a lot of variety. Some of the mall down by Macy's has been updated and looks nice. MAny other areas of the mall do need to be updated. Decent prices and many upscale name brand stores.

I had not been to this mall since the 1990's so it felt like an all new experience. The mall is a typical outlet mall in that basically none of the stores are true outlet stores, but everyone had some really good deals. The variety of stores was nice. There were a few I wasn't familiar with, so I enjoyed... More

I've only gone to gurnee mills a few time, but I'm always excited to go and do tons of shopping. Love their sales and deals. They have a little bit of everything which makes it well worth the drive. If it was closer, I'd definitely make a weekly trip.

Not as good as the the malls in Chicago. It's not multi level but a one level mall in the shape of a Z. The people who visit this mall are mostly Hispanic and was getting cut off and walked into by a few who just didn't care. The food court is interesting, because of the design, but doesn't have...
