Since opening, the Gurnee Antique Market has maintained its reputation as one of the premiere outposts of exceptional antiques available in the Chicagoland area. Or Milwaukee, for that matter. We are always interested in talking to top quality antique dealers who might want to join us. While spaces do not turn over frequently, we keep a list of interested vendors and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please get in touch if you’d like more information.
The Market offers dealers the following amenities:
Building: The 21,000 square foot Antique Market was designed and constructed in 1998 with its current purpose in mind. Wide aisles and thoughtful layout allow for excellent customer flow and access. Parking is plentiful in our dedicated lot, and state of the art security means your inventory is safe and secure, even when you’re not around.
Location: Located in between Chicago and Milwaukee, the Market is easy to find and inviting. Easy on-off access and high visibility from (Illinois Tollway) I-94, with a number of local attractions nearby mean the Market is on everyone’s radar. Or… GPS?
Marketing: Dealers are supported by local and in-store signage, plus 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 and make it easy for hanging things. All booths are carpeted, and dealers are welcome to put down any removable floor covering over the carpet if preferred.
Showcases: The Market rents locked showcases which are located throughout the market to eliminate the "glass tunnel" effect. Dealers may place their own showcase in their rented booth. On-site staff members carry keys and are able to assist customers who need help at any time.
Services: The Gurnee Antique Market is fully-staffed with a knowledgeable sales force and industry recognized management. Dealers are not required to work their booth, but are certainly welcome at any time. Carts, dollies, ladders and tools are provided to assist dealers in booth setup.
Leases: We’re so convinced you’ll love it here, that there is no annual contract to sign. All leases are month-to-month.
