The Nordstrom here is so big and so expansive that it takes hours just to find what you want and it has everything.

I like to try stuff on then buy - so this mall has a great selection.

Half a century ago, coming upon Oakbrook Mall at night was almost like arriving at a magical oasis. There was very little else in the area (or even traveling to it); so emerging the darkness and spotting the white lights outlining the buildings was almost ethereal.
Obviously things change, but this is still a special place to visit. A wonderful variety of shopping options exist; from moderate to high end, and ordinary to unique, one has many choices among which to pick.
And, a wide selection of dining establishments allows one to satisfy almost any culinary craving.
Some people seem dismayed with an open-air area in winter (and sometimes it can be a bit challenging); but there is something rather special about walking around the mall at night, around Xmas (especially if a light snow is falling).
Actually, all the seasons add a unique flavor to enjoying the experience.
Heavy duty shopping, or laid-back strolling and browsing; this is a wonderful place to spend a few hours or several days.

Having lived in the area my whole life, we have been frequent visitors to Oakbrook Mall. While a number of malls are boarding up, Oakbrook is actually expanding and improving constantly. The mall is a destination for any visitor to the Chicago area. The restaurants are top notch and the shopping goes from affordable to very high end. If your in the area, make a point to stop by!

Oakbrook Center still holds up even during the challenging retail environment.

Anchored by Nordstrom’s, Macy’s and Nieman Marcus and augmented by boutiques such as Tiffany’s, LV, Apple and Samsung—there is some great shopping to be done. There are also some excellent restaurants from which to choose.

So many high end stores to patron and places to eat, it’s a great place to really splurge or just spend an afternoon.

A new AMC mega theatre is opening soon and it will be a great addition.

It is an outdoor mall so winter can be brutal—but it can also be beautiful-decorations and frozen fountains.

It’s worth a drive out to the burbs. If nothing else you save a few percent over city taxes.

Worth a visit.
