Chicago shines in its shopping and entertainment offerings.

Dive headfirst into some of the best shopping in town at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago, located only 24 kilometers from downtown Chicago. This expansive, indoor outlet destination is packed with over 130 designer stores featuring savings of up to 75% off – and that’s just the beginning of what’s on offer here. Anchored by Bloomingdale’s The Outlet Store, Neiman Marcus Last Call, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th and Forever 21, the Fashion Outlets stands apart as the only multi-level shopping outlet in the U.S. Midwest. Its variety of stores, friendly customer service and accessibility to the cosmopolitan city of Chicago, makes it more than just a place to score huge savings.

Major Labels

If you’ve got a taste for the finer things in life, Fashion Outlets has you covered, offering a bevy of high-end retailers. Luxury labels like Gucci, Prada, Burberry and Tory Burch are well represented here, alongside hard-to-find outlet stores such as AllSaints, Longchamp, Stuart Weitzman, Ted Baker and Karl Lagerfeld Paris. Feel like you’re shopping Madison Avenue at Barneys New York Warehouse, or pick up a trinket (or five) at Swarovski. To array yourself in classic American attire, head to Michael Kors and Calvin Klein.

Beloved Brands

With so many favorite brands on offer here, you may want to devise a shopping strategy before you go inside. Start with the essentials: Banana Republic, J. Crew Factory, Gap Factory Store and Levi’s to stock up on denim and comfortable urban wear. Get yourself workout-ready at lululemon athletica and Under Armour, or shop beauty and wellness stores like L’Occitane and The Body Shop. The under-25 crowd will enjoy jaw-dropping sales at American Eagle Outfitters and Theory, while the savings really pile up at kid’s stores Janie and Jack and The Children’s Place. Other surprises here include Kipling, Vineyard Vines, Le Creuset, UGG and BOSE outlets.

The concierge will also make dining reservations, print boarding passes or exchange foreign currency. Need something fitted? Head to Nordstrom Rack’s Alterations Service.
