Located just 3 minutes from the Best Western Midway hotel is the Ford City Mall. Ford City Mall is one of the oldest shopping malls in America and started its life off as a colossal aircraft engine assembly plant for testing engines for the famous B29 Bombers. In 1965 the remaining buildings were converted into a large enclosed Mall and a smaller Strip mall and opened as the Ford Mall. In 2017 major renovations were completed and the Mall received a complete makeover including new floors, repainting, new LED lighting and renovated entrances. Today the complex remains one of Chicago’s largest enclosed malls and top shopping destinations.
Ford City Mall is your one-stop shop for fun, food, and retail shopping. Ford City Mall offers everything from dining to entertainment, to shopping and more! It is home to Carson Pirie Scott and JC Penney and has over 135 stores and restaurants including Applebee’s, Bath & Body Works, The Children’s Place, Footlocker, Kay Jewelers, Marshall’s, Old Navy, Victoria’s Secret, and 5-7-9, along with a 14-theater AMC Cinema. An H&M store is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.
