Hawthorn Mall
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 May 2017

I visited recently to pick-up a purchase that my wife had made online. And the mall still looks to be in good shape (clean and well maintained) but I do wonder about its future.

Sears, JCP, Carson's, and Macy's are the "anchor" tenants and in the current era where Amazon (and others) are killing brick-and-mortar retail in a wholesale way, one needs to wonder how long a place like Hawthorn Mall can survive.

Now, granted, there's plenty of smaller retailer tenants there. And they added a theatre and a Dave & Buster's recently, so they're diversifying. I just hope that it is enough. I hate the traffic on IL-60 around the mall but I am thankful for the taxes that they pay (not that they're enough to make the local property taxes on homeowners reasonable).

Perhaps the answer is to just move away from Illinois and its corrupt governmental units and just rely on Amazon and Netflix for shopping and entertainment.

We visited this mall a few times on the last month. It id not too big, but has a lot of great shops. In the food court you can choose from a lot of different fast food restaurants. We were there with two babies, so we usef the family lounge a few times. There is a big room for families with children, the kids can play, you can feed and change them. Overall, yoi habe everything in one place. We usef some coupons, so we even saved some money :)

Hawthorn Mall is a convenient shopping center for Lake County. They've done a nice job with the recent updates to the exterior and addition of the movie theater and more dining options. Claim Company and Dave & Busters are family favorites. The mall hosts a variety of events that cater to kids. Highlights include the holidays with Santa and the Law Enforcement expo. Our kids love seeing all the police vehicles and getting stickers, etc.

Upgrades make it nicer than it use to be. Hope there is more to come. I rarely venture out into the actual mall. Recent restaurant upgrades and movie theater attract more people than it use to.

Hawthrone mall is definitely improving. The two new additions that are the best by far are the AMC theater. Talk about luxury. I won't go to another theater. You have reserved so no need to rush. The seats are the type you see in home theaters. They do recline all the way and there is enough room if you have your feet raised for a person to be by.
And the movie, go to Maggiano's for dinner. Make sure to have reservations. Always delicious. Or Claim company. Great salad bar.
They are better stores al the time, such as Michael Kors and Francesca's. Hope they continue with the improvements.
