Chicago may be known as a shopping mecca thanks to the Magnificent Mile and the iconic Macy’s on State Street, but it’s also full of small, independent store owners with a flare for fashion, food, and everything in between.

Old Town is no exception. While you may have spent late nights hopping between bars, come day time it’s the perfect spot to get interesting items you won’t find anywhere else. Here are a few of our favorites that are located just minutes from our luxury apartment rentals in Chicago, Old Town Park:

1. Fleet Feet Sports


Shoe lovers, rejoice! If you have a thing for super slick kicks and sneakers, then consider Fleet Feet your mecca. Since 1996, they’ve been offering the trendiest athletic gear to suit you up from head to toe.

2. Greenheart Shop


Now you have the perfect excuse to shop till you drop! At Greenheart, you’re not only purchasing beautiful products, but you’re giving back to those in need, all at the same time.

Greenheart Shop is Chicago’s only non-profit, fair trade shop. This means they go out of their way to source products and curate a collection that does as little harm as possible to people, communities, and the environment. All of the products they sell are fair trade, eco-friendly, or carry a social mission.

3. Luxury Garage Sale


From Chanel to Gucci, you’ll find new and preloved fashion at this trendy boutique on N. Wells Street. Need some guidance? They also offer styling services to ensure you’re the best dressed person in the room. From a wardrobe overhaul to outfitting for a special event, their fashionistas are here to help.
