Chicago Shopping



Merchandise Mart

Merchandise Mart Review

This massive marketplace between Wells and North Orleans streets just north of the Chicago River is more notable for its Art Deco design than its shopping. Much of the building's stores are only for the design trade, meaning that you have to be an interior designer to access their wares. However, the first two floors have been turned into retail with the unveiling of LuxeHome, the world's largest collection of high-end kitchen, bath, and building showrooms that are open to the public. Tenants include de Giulio kitchen design and Waterworks and the Chopping Block, a local culinary school with a loyal fan base, has a spacious location here.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
