The Red Balloon Children’s boutique, located at 3651 N. Southport Avenue came out swinging in 2014, vowing to fight the national retail chains on the Southport Corridor.
“Someone’s gotta do their part to fight the national big box encroachment,” the owner said to then DNA Chicago.
Unfortunately, The Red Balloon announced their closure on January 1 and will now remain at their Bucktown location. Did you shop at The Red Balloon? What can save small independent shops on Southport?
