Last Friday evening Henri Bendel opened on the second level of Water Tower. This is the first store in the Chicago market since the closure of their previous Chicago store in The 900 Shops in 1998.
The shop flaunts their signature stripes, chandeliers and sparkles on every surface. Focusing on small leather goods, necklaces, rings, bags, scarves and fun baubles, the shop is now expanding a reputation in beauty and fragrance categories.
Now, while supplies last when you spend $150 or more you'll receive a limited Chicago edition Henri Bendel tote. Plus, they're giving away a $1,000 gift card and a trip for two to New York to meet with and see the Rockettes perform in 2012.
