Spring Hill Mall is a regional shopping mall in West Dundee, Illinois and Carpentersville, Illinois.

History

Spring Hill was developed by Homart Development Company, then owned by Sears, Roebuck & Company. The mall opened in October 1980 with two anchors, Marshall Field & Company and Sears, Roebuck & Company. Originally, Carson Pirie Scott was scheduled to open an anchor store at the location now occupied by Kohl's (originally MainStreet); however, Carson's store was cancelled, although the chain did open a Honey Bear Farm store in the west wing of the mall in October 1980. In later years, Carson's itself did open at the mall, by acquiring former anchor Bergner's (which was added in 1981 as Bergner-Weise). Bergner's parent company, P.A. Bergner & Co acquired Carson Pirie Scott and Bergner's elected to re-brand its Chicago-area Bergner stores, including Spring Hill Mall as Carson Pirie Scott. The vacant anchor location on the Northwest Side of the mall opened in 1984 as Joseph Spiess Company, an Elgin, Illinois-based specialty department store company. Joseph Spiess closed the Spring Hill Mall store in 1994. This store was later Wickes Furniture and then became a Steve and Barry's (closed in February 2009). It was later Home Furniture Mart, now an American Eagle Furniture.

On January 24, JCPenney announced that they would close this location by June 1, 2011.[1][2]

Today, the 4 anchor stores are Carson Pirie Scott, Kohl's, Macy's and Sears, with the former J. C. Penney space sitting vacant. The Marshall Field's store was renamed Macy's on September 9, 2006.

In 2011 General Growth Properties, following its bankruptcy, spun off 30 mall properties into a new division, Rouse Properties, Inc.[3] Spring Hill Mall was one of the properties transferred to Rouse Properties.[4] The property is currently owned and managed by Rouse Properties, one of the largest mall owners in the United States.

The site was previously the D. Hill Nursery, which relocated to Union, Illinois to make way for the mall.[5]

The mall is actually in two cities. The two anchor wings that include Carson Pirie Scott and Kohl's are located in Carpentersville, Illinois. To this day, Carpentersville retains control over the issuance of building permits and business licenses and the village provides police and fire services to that portion of the mall solely inside Carpentersville village limits.
