And now, the latest from Racked Chicago, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
EVERYWHERE - Everybody and their mother is having a sale right now. If you can't find a place to spend your cash, don't blame us.
WICKER PARK - Early in the week we reported that the Lomography Store and Gallery had set an opening par-tay date and already ordered the pizzas. Then later in the week we found out that The City of Chicago put the kibosh on some plans and have no choice but to delay the opening.
BUCKTOWN - Nifty artist-designed shoe brand, Bucketfeet has decided it's about time to do a local pop-up instead of just music fests and selling online. Apartment Number 9, also home to the stunt-y and fun eyeglass frame company, Warby Parker is playing host.
