Everytime we go to Northbrook Mall, we have a good overall experience. We like the fact that it is never overcrowded like most other shopping centers in the area, offers a very good selection of shops and is a fun place to be. Our toddler adores the large play area with a treehouse and we like the restaurants. One important plus for a bargain shopper is that the stores always seem to have a good assortment of sale / clearenced goods. I also love the resting areas with elegant leather sofa sets.
