Westfield Louis Joliet Mall, formerly/informally known as Louis Joliet Mall, is a shopping mall in Joliet, Illinois. It is located at 1118 Mall Loop Drive, Joliet. Its four anchor stores are Carson Pirie Scott, JCPenney, Macy's (formerly Marshall Field's) and Sears. The mall opened in 1978 with Sears and Marshall Field & Company. Bergner's opened in September 1979, and JCPenney would move from downtown to the mall one month later. In the beginning, Louis Joliet Mall had stiff competition from the slightly older mall a few miles away on Jefferson Street, Jefferson Square Mall. Many shops had a location in both malls (Stuart's, Musicland, Printer's Ink, etc). After the Wieboldt's at Jefferson Square closed in 1987, many of these stores either went to Louis Joliet Mall or simply closed their Jefferson Square location.

Louis Joliet is a one-level mall with Macy's and JCPenney at one end and Carson Pirie Scott and Sears at other end. There is a food court off the main corridor in the center of the mall.

The Carson Pirie Scott in the mall was originally a Bergner's when it opened. It was converted after the merger of P.A. Bergner with Carson Pirie Scott.

The Marshall Field's store was officially renamed Macy's on September 9, 2006.

The Westfield Group acquired the shopping center in 2003, and renamed it "Westfield Shoppingtown Louis Joliet", dropping the "Shoppingtown" name in June 2005. However, most locals do not use the Westfield name for the mall. Many call it "Joliet Mall", or "Louie Mall".

The mall itself (not including anchore stores) is one floor and contains a variety or shops, stands, and food shops.Louis Joliet Mall also houses a Tilt video arcade, a play-area for children with seating for parents and a TGI Fridays restaurant.

Louis Joliet Mall has also begun construction on a new multi-screen Cinemark movie theater scheduled to open in 2009, replacing the current Silver Cinema theater.
