Belvidere Discount Mall,
2101-2245 Belvidere Road, Waukegan


The Belvidere Discount Mall has developed a market niche within its community.  What distinguishes the Belvidere Discount Mall from the numerous retail centers nearby is our unique tenant mix along with our “best of both worlds” physical layout.

With a mixture of regional/national retailers and a dominance of local retailers and service businesses, we offer shoppers a one-of-a-kind unique shopping environment, rather than a “cookie-cutter” mall with the same tenants that can be found in hundreds of other malls across the country.  Our store sizes range from 300 square feet on up to further enhance our variety.  Most of our retailers have taken a  “no-frills” marketing concept which allows them to offer true “discount” prices.  Our image within the community is that of a truly discount mall.

We offer the convenience of an enclosed shopping mall with all the advantages of a strip center — street identity signage for all tenants, single-floor layout, and a simple floor plan so your store, and your customers, won’t get lost in the shuffle.
