Another mall not worth visiting
May 2021 • Couples
My husband and I decided to come here tonight to get some walking in and check out the mall since we haven’t been here in a couple years. It’s gone downhill in a big way!

Walking in felt like being transported back to the 90’s with the outdated decor. A lot of the old stores are gone and have been replaced with sketchy looking, cheap, and generic clothes stores. The Saks Off Fifth, one of my favorite stores to poke around in, is one of the stores that’s disappeared. The amount of empty storefronts is incredible.

This is absolutely not an outlet mall in any sense of the word, there are only a couple ‘outlet’ stores here. That said, I enjoy the Macy’s here since it’s cleaner and more spacious than the ones closer to me. Is it good enough to get me to visit again? Nope.

Disappointed
May 2021 • Family
This mall is so empty rundown and lost its charm been coming here for over 30 years. Way to many empty stores and the stores that are there are generic with stuff no one really buys or needs. It's gotten ghetto big time

Trashy and low class
Oct 2020 • Family
This is not a nice mall. It is large and has plenty of stores, but not very nice stores. It has a different feel than a normal mall and the clientele has much to be desired. Skip this place unless you really need to buy something.

Hasn't changed much.

Last visited there nearly 20 years ago, and not much changed. Lots of parking, numerous stores for almost every need. Just there really only for the Rainforest Cafe.

It's an interesting mall with all the factory outlets. Shopping here not only felt nice but reasonable also .
They have two food courts and a Rainforest Cafe . Decent food options are available. Mall has kids play area and multi brand outlets like Macy's and Marshall's.

Located Near Dangerous Environmental Hazard
Nov 2018
Unfortunately this shopping mall is located near two plants that emit cancer causing gases into the air. (It's called EtO; google Stop Eto Lake County for info). Most visitors are unaware of the public safety hazard. Many locals I know avoid shopping here and go to Pleasant Praire Outlet mall in Wisconsin instead, which is about 15 minutes away

I love this mall, so many stores. The Nike Outlet store didn't have a nice variety of shoes but lots of discount clothing. One of my favorite malls!
