Since opening, the Gurnee Antique Market has maintained a reputation as one of the premiere shopping experiences of its kind in the Chicagoland area. Or Milwaukee, for that matter. We are always interested in talking to quality dealers who might want to join us, so please get in touch if you’d like more information.
The Market offers dealers the following amenities:
Building: The building was designed and constructed in 1998 with its current purpose in mind. Wide aisles and a thoughtful layout allow for excellent customer flow and access. Parking is plentiful in our dedicated lot, and there are large well-maintained bathrooms. A 24 hour security and fire system is monitored by local authorities.
Location: Located between Chicago and Milwaukee, the Market is easy to find with high visibility & easy on-off access from I-94 (Illinois Tollway). The many local attractions nearby mean the Market is on everyone’s radar. Or… GPS?
Marketing: Dealers are supported by signage (including on I-94), local and regional advertising, e-marketing, social media, direct marketing and public relations campaigns. With our own backgrounds in marketing and commercial real estate, we love new ideas and suggestions!
Booth Space: Dealer spaces range from 9.5' to 19' wide and are 10' deep and well-lit. Side walls are typically 7' tall and rear walls are 8' with a ceiling height of 10'. Walls are textured hardboard, making it easy for hanging things. All booths are carpeted. Dealers are welcome to paint or otherwise customize their space with management’s approval.
Showcases: The Market rents locked showcases spaced throughout the Market to eliminate the "glass tunnel" effect. Dealers may place their own showcase in their rented booth. Staff members carry keys to assist customers.
Services: The Gurnee Antique Market is fully-staffed with a knowledgeable sales force and industry recognized management. Dealers are not required to work. Carts, dollies, ladders and tools are provided to assist dealers in booth setup and maintenance. A call-light system is in every aisle for customers to request assistance.
Leases: We’re so convinced you’ll love it here, that there is no annual contract to sign. All leases are month-to-month.
