Happy Birthday Schaumburg! You’re turning 60 this year on March 7, 2016 and we’re happy to celebrate with you!
In honor of your birthday year, we’re doing a monthly blog posting based on some of our favorite things about you.
During the month of March we’re asking the readers of this blog to share their favorite memory about Woodfield Mall. The shopping center opened in 1971 and has been one of the cornerstones of the community. People have flocked to the mall for the variety of stores, the restaurants and the various events that have been held in the stores and Center Court.
If you have a favorite memory about Woodfield, please do share it in the comments below. Maybe it’s a restaurant that is gone but not forgotten? Or a store that carried your favorite brand of clothes? Or you were one of the lucky ones who saw John Travolta in his appearance at the mall? Whatever that memory may be, we’d love to hear from you!
