Shopping: The Loop & State Street
Having played several different roles in the world of Chicago shopping, State Street has reemerged as a top contender as far as shopping destinations go in the Windy City.
Gone is the classic Marshall Field's and in today is a modern Macy's. The charm of the old building remains however, and Macy's has filled what could have been a void with grace and poise. In addition to the great shopping at Macy's, comes a plethora of events, trunk and fashion shows and even flea markets giving the State Street neighborhood shoppers all the more to buzz about.
State Street isn't just about Macy's though, today it also means superb bargain shopping. Designer bargains are everywhere here: Filene's Basement, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Forever 21 and more create a the perfect line-up for budget-conscious spree-shopping.
La Salle Street
