Chicago is no slouch when it comes to awesome shopping options. From the swank department stores and luxury flagships of the beloved Magnificent Mile to the discount outlets of the Loop, there’s certainly something for everyone in the Windy City. But as much as we love the easy shopping options of those neighborhoods, there are a few areas whose shops we find especially enchanting: Namely, Wicker Park and Logan Square. With their collective array of sleek boutiques, concept stores, and under-the-radar shopping options, we can’t seem to stop ourselves from bee-lining it to those neighborhoods whenever we find ourselves in the Midwest’s biggest city.
Since Lollapalooza is upon us — we’re guessing you may find yourself in Chi-town with a few extra hours to spare — we thought now would be as good a time as any to share some of our favorite shopping destinations in and around those neighborhoods. Whether you’re looking for a few easy pieces to supplement your summer festival uniform or something just a wee bit fancier, you’re guaranteed to find it at one of these must-visit Chicago stores.
