Gurnee Mills is an indoor mall, established in Gurnee, Illinois, a village west of Waukegan, Illinois. It's located about halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a 40 minute drive either way, and near Six Flags Great America. It is a single-level Z-shaped mall. At 1,800,000 square feet (170,000 m2) of gross leasable area, it is the fourth largest mall in Illinois, and is visited by more than 20 million people each year. Gurnee Mills opened on August 8, 1991.
Gurnee Mills was initially owned by Mills Corporation. In 2007, the Simon Property Group acquired the Mills Corporation. In April 2010, plans for a $5 million renovation were announced. The renovations are expected to take up to 3 years to be completed. Some parts of the rehab have been delayed, but new retailers continue to open. As of May 24, 2011 Macy's was announced to be opening in the mall, on the former site of the Circuit City store sometime in 2013.
