Golf Mill Shopping Center is a super-regional shopping mall located on 239 Golf Mill Center in Niles, IL, United States. The shopping center has a gross leasable area of 1.1 million square feet. It is managed by Sterling Retail Services. It borders the intersections of Golf Road (Illinois Route 58), Milwaukee Avenue (Illinois Route 21) and Greenwood Avenue. The shopping center has over 100 specialty shops, five department stores (JC Penney, Sears, Target, Kohl’s and Ross Dress for Less), an AMC movie theater, two grocery stores (Shop & Save Market, Gordon Food Service Store), an XSport Fitness gym, a 9-story office tower and other outparcels.


Opening Day

Golf Mill opened to the public in October 1960 as an open-air mall and featured an office tower (designed by Chicago architect Edo Belli to look like the top of a golf ball) and Sears. It featured a full "mill" theme, complete with ponds, bridges, and a working waterwheel. Soon after opening, a Lord's department store was built, but closed after a few years and was replaced by JCPenney. Around that time, the Mill Run Playhouse was built at the north end of the complex. It wasn't connected to the mall corridors proper.


In 1989, MainStreet became Kohl's. In 1998, a Target was built near Kohl's. General Growth Properties took over management of Golf Mill Shopping Center in 1994. Value City Furniture was added in 2005. In 2006, GGP remodeled the mall, installing new flooring, a new facade, lighting, and entrances, but only in part of the mall. The remodel brought a 12-screen Kerasotes movie theater. In 2010, Kerasotes ShowPlace 12 was acquired by AMC. After a turn of events with General Growth Properties, Milwaukee Golf Management Corporation took over management of Golf Mill Shopping Center in 2009. Ross Dress for Less opened in 2012. Sterling Organization purchased Golf Mill Shopping Center in August 2014 via a private equity fund, and its subsidiary, Sterling Retail Services is currently managing the property on behalf of the fund.
