Gurnee Mills, which opened in 1991, draws on a trade area of over 10 million customers and has nearly 23 million visitors per year from 10 million cars per year. The exterior design of Gurnee Mills is inspired by the agricultural structures of the American heartland, while the interior is based on a “Main Street” theme. Grange Hall, the mall’s center court, was designed in the spirit of an old American variety store.
State-of-the-industry entertainment and video systems throughout the mall enhance the shopping experience, which create excitement and motivational opportunities. The entertainment court resembles a movie sound stage with a video-wall backdrop of 25 multi-image projection cubes. The Dine-O-Rama food court features three hot-rod vendors and high school themed tables inlaid with yearbook and sports photos from local schools.
