Woodfield Mall Named Among Nation’s Top 10 Retail Center Experiences

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (Aug. 8, 2019) Woodfield Mall, a Simon property with a distinctive collection of nearly 300 stores, has been named one of 2019’s Top 10 Retail Center Experiences by Chain Store Age.

The largest shopping destination in the Chicago area, Woodfield Mall is home to five major anchors and a who’s-who of the country’s most popular brands and market-exclusive concepts. The mega-mall supports its compelling retail mix with equally compelling dining and entertainment options, such as the popular Improv Comedy Club, PAC-MAN Entertainment, a first-of-its-kind 3D creativity museum called Blocks to Bricks, and more than 40 restaurants and food purveyors.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized in this way,” said Laurie Van Dalen, General Manager of Woodfield Mall. “Beyond recruiting the best retail and mixed-use concepts to meet our customers’ evolving needs, we continually reinvest in creating an appealing environment where shoppers want to come to enjoy the social and sensory advantages of brick-and-mortar retail.”

Citing the mall’s ongoing enhancements, including a recently opened, state-of-the-art Dining Pavilion, the Chain Store Age editors heralded Woodfield Mall as a “prime example of an enclosed mall that’s withstanding the challenge of e-coms and town centers.”

The annual Top 10 list, which recognizes brick-and-mortar retail venues and mixed-use properties that exemplify excellence in overall customer experience, Chain Store Age solicited nominations for the Top 10 list earlier this year from the more than 100,000 retailers and allied professionals who read its magazine, website, and newsletters. Its board of editors selected the list, and the July/August digital edition can be found by clicking here.
