My sister recently moved 1/2 a mile from here. I was not thrilled because so many outlet malls just do NOT live up to the hype and are filled with empty storefronts.
This outlet is the exception.
Some reviewers have said the look for more non-shopping amenities. I do not. I only go the outlets to shop.
The brand names here are diverse so I found something for everyone.
What I really noticed however was the salespeople. They were attentive, considerate and helpful as well as professional and knowledgeable.
I especially was impressed with Vera Bradley, Talbots and Merrill. Carter's had a fantastic sale! $3.99 on almost everything. My kids grow so quickly and having quality clothes at such prices really has me very happy.
It is an outside mall and I visited on one of the hottest days in Illinois history (over 100 degrees)!
So dress properly for the weather. The good thing about this is the crowd doesn't get as bothersome because everyone is not on top of one another.
I would go online and sign up for a VIP membership. If you do this online and print out the page - bring it to the INFORMATION DESK in the FOOD COURT and you will get a ton of coupons that apply even on top of the sales, claearance, etc...! If you sign up on site - it costs $5.00. Online - FREE!!! I love FREE!
All in all I really liked this place. I will be back.

Disappointed in brand of stores and inventory at stores. If you are in this area, go further to Gurnee Mills...better store variety, better deals and more non-shopping amenities.

may be i am visiting at a great time of the year. or may be i am just plain lucky. or may be this place always has great offers going on. but i just shopped and shopped and shopped. and i know, i'll be going there for more. all good apparel brands have their outlets here, and offer great deals on most merchandize.

the only drawback - too few restrooms for such a huge place. so the restrooms were always crowded, and a bit dirty

This is one of the few outlet malls that seems to keep stores. I love the Talbots and Crabtree Evelyn stores at this mall. The mall is clean and well kept.
