Celebrating fifty years of the largest mall in Illinois.

Woodfield Mall Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

It does not hurt that it is the largest mall in Illinois and one of the biggest in the United States. It is arguably the most iconic in our state too.

Why Has Woodfield Mall Survived

I believe there are many reasons why Woodfield Mall has survived the collapse of the shopping mall.

First of all, it is famous. Visitors from around the world to Chicago make it a point to make a stop at Woodfield.

Also, there is so much to see and do there, people still want to check it out. They may even shop there over the internet. My daughter and her friends will take a trip from Rockford a couple of times a year.

Memories Of Woodfield

Like many people that live in this area, I have great memories of going to Woodfield Mall. As a kid with family and later with friends.

It could have been for Christmas, back-to-school, or just to hang out. I am so glad that it is holding strong and will be around for many years to come.
