Southport Avenue has been voted #6 in USA Today‘s top shopping areas in Chicago.
“If shopping independent stores are more to your liking, head to Southport Corridor, easily accessible via the CTA Brown Line and a short walk from Wrigley Field. Southport oozes “Chicago” with an eclectic mix of clothing and accessory boutiques, dynamite restaurants and family attractions. Krista K is a well-regarded boutique stocking a thoughtful mix of emerging designers and perennial favorites. Men should stop in at the Denim Lounge for Men for superior denim and gifts for guys. M2 Boutique offers gorgeous bags and gifts of all sorts. Long-time neighborhood outdoor and equipment store, Uncle Dan’s, will outfit you in clothes and accessories for men, women and kids. When you need a lift, head to Frio Gelato for a scoop of rich gelato and icy sorbets made with fresh ingredients as well as allergy-friendly ingredients. Southport Corridor is also home to an Amazon Store as well as several upscale national chains such as Anthropologie, Kendra Scott, Lush Cosmetics, Bonobos, Evereve, Lou & Grey & Johnny Was.”
