Shopping and Dining

When it comes to finding a great shopping destination and restaurant selection, Joliet has you covered. The community literally hosts hundreds of choices for those in need of a little retail therapy or a bite to eat.

Louis Joliet Mall is an enclosed, single-level mall conveniently located off I-55 and Rt.30, and is just minutes away from Interstate 80.

Anchored by JC Penney, Sears, Macy’s, and Carson Pirie Scott, this retail hot spot has over 90 merchants. Come shop with us at H&M, PINK, and Pandora. The mall’s dining court has eatery favorites like Taco Bell/KFC, McDonald’s, Panda Express and more, or if you would rather dine in, try TGI Friday’s or catch a game on the big screens at Tilted Kilt. Louis Joliet is also home to the 14-screen all digital Cinemark Movie Theatre showing all the newest releases!

Louis Joliet Mall displays the country’s first, interactive digital ficus tree. It is a must see! Every guest can interact with the tree, take a selfie at the photo booth and send it up the tree to be seen on the 28 40-inch LCD screens.
