Deerbrook Mall is a regional mall in Deerfield, Illinois Located on 130 acres (0.53 km2) its current anchor stores are, Sports Authority, TJ Maxx, Jewel Osco, Office Max, Ulta, and Bed Bath and Beyond. Former anchors include Best Buy, Bally Total Fitness, Old Country Buffet, and Blockbuster Video. The Great Indoors closed after just one year in business and Wonder! after four months in the same space.

Venture, the now defunct retail chain was ten year tenant in the mall. It closed its door and moved out in January 1989. Other stores no longer in the mall were Service Merchandise, Spiegel, and Loomcraft. Marshalls used to occupy the space now used by TJ Maxx. An initial anchor of the mall was Montgomery Ward, a now defunct full line department store, which also operated an auto repair and tire facility in a separate building located immediately southeast of the mall building.

In 1998, Lend Lease Real Estate Investments bought the mall from Valenti Builders a Northfield based company.

Deerbrook Mall used to house a four (4) screen movie theater. The theater opened in the mid-1970s as a twin. Two auditoriums were added in the 1980s. The small quaint but popular theater dimmed its lights for the last time in 2001. It was operated by General Cinema. Today it remains closed and shuttered, with black plastic over the internal windows. The marquee is still attached to the wall and the General Cinema sign still hangs outside overlooking a parking lot which functions for trucks delivering merchandise .

It is located on Waukegan Road, between the Edens Spur and Lake Cook Road.
