It doesn’t hurt that it’s the largest mall in Illinois and one of the largest in the United States. It is undoubtedly the most emblematic of our state too.

Why did Woodfield Mall survive
I believe there are several reasons why Woodfield Mall survived the mall collapse.
First of all, he’s famous. Visitors to Chicago from all over the world make a point of stopping at Woodfield.
Plus, there is so much to see and do there that people always want to check it out. They can even shop there on the Internet. My daughter and her friends will travel from Rockford twice a year.

Like many people who live in this area, I have fond memories of going to Woodfield Mall. As a child with family and later with friends.
It could have been for Christmas, back to school or just going out. I am so happy that he is holding on and being here for many years to come.
