Great Lakes Mall, Mentor’s family friendly shopping destination, is home to more than 120 popular retailers. As a northeastern suburb & bedroom community of Cleveland, Mentor has more than evolved to be a place where people can shop & dine locally - with Great Lakes Mall being the primary driver of this point. Significant reinvestment has been made in the center with the addition of Round 1, Dillard's consolidation & remodel, as well as the addition of Hobby Lobby & Outback Steakhouse on the peripheral.
Great Lakes Mall, located in Lake County Ohio, serves the affluent suburbs that run east of Cleveland along Lake Erie. The center serves a captive audience, with the next closest regional mall more than 25 minutes away. The city of Mentor was named one of the Best 100 Places to Live by CNN/Money magazine in 2006 and 2010.
