Sneak Preview: What To Buy From Chicago's New Madewell Store

You may have been sad (or glad!) when the bustling Gold Coast Starbucks (a.k.a. pickup joint) shut its doors back in December, but two beautiful things resulted in the aftermath: A bigger and better location was opened down the block, and one of our favorite retailers, Madewell, took over the old space. Of course, this was not without a complete overhaul — you've probably noticed (and heard) all of the construction over the past few months. While it's still a bit too early to tell, behind those papered windows is a gorgeous 4,131-square-foot retail emporium that's yours for the taking starting Wednesday, April 3.
