The only mall that I've noticed seems to be doing well lately is Old Orchard in Skokie. They made it truly interesting with several specialty shops and outlets for mail order stores. Lots of restaurants too. The parking lot is full every time I go there. I grew up in Skokie and the place was about average in the 1960s and most of the 1970s, and a ghost town in the late 1970s and 1980s.

There are fantastic comments here regarding this tid bit of news. Let me just remind some and enlighten others ....THERE ACTUALLY IS THEATRE SPACE LAYING DORMANT WITHIN THE INTERIOR OF THE MALL! yes....what a great space to bring a theatre company! But the right one, please! Also, like the comment bike paths to nowhere....so true! Don't forget Caldwell Corners....Realy! What the heck is going on? Most of us don't need a crystal ball to have anticipated everything on the subject that has happened concerning retail here. But if someone has an extra crystal ball laying around please send it over to the village board.

With that huge underground parking space, they should turn Wonder! into a homeless shelter or a dog park.

Deerbrook mall needs to be revamped. The last time I was there I went into TJMAX and stil cannot believe how that mall can survive being empty inside. Its finall time to figure out an ecomonical way to revamp that mall.
