The news of Abercrombie & Fitch has been one of the biggest commenting events on our social media platforms, and one of the highest views on the blog. However, many of you have commented about chain stores taking over and that you would rather shop small. Here’s some of the favorite small businesses on Southport Avenue in Chicago. Which one is your favorite(s)?
The van was located later in the 1600 block of S. Lawndale.
Three dogs are reunited with their owner after the Dogaholics doggie daycare transport van they were in was stolen Thursday afternoon in Lakeview on the North Side.
Just before 5 p.m., an employee parked the white van in an alley behind the business in the 3600 block of North Southport Avenue with a Great Dane and two short-haired pointers inside, Chicago police said.
The driver left the keys in the ignition, with the doors locked, while he ran inside to grab another set of keys, according to police and Dogaholics general manager Ben Montgomery.
When the driver returned someone was driving away in the van, police said.
Dogaholics offers pet grooming, boarding and daycare services. Montgomery said the driver was preparing to bring the three dogs back to their home.
All three dogs – Keith, Pappy, and Stella – belong to the same owner, Montgomery said. The Great Dane is about one year old and the short-haired pointer siblings are closer to five years old, according to Montgomery.
The owners offered a $10,000 reward to bring them back.
The van was located a few hours later in the 1600 block of S. Lawndale after a concerned citizen called police, according to CPD. All three dogs were found inside the vehicle unharmed.
The owners said the dogs were hungry and a little shaken up, but otherwise OK.
Montgomery said nothing like this has ever happened at their business.

“After 10 years of providing pet parents with the best products for their furry family members, this week, Dogaholics takes its final walk as a retailer. The time has come for me to officially hand over the retail leash… actually lots of leashes…and lots and lots of dog food…to Bentley’s Pet Stuff (formerly Bentley’s Corner Barkery). Dogaholics will continue to service Chicago through doggy daycare, boarding, grooming and training.”
