Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Did you know you can read the hottest retail stories of the day in your Facebook newsfeed? Not that we have crazy hot stories all the time but sometimes we do. Maybe if you like crazy hottness happening in the Chicago retail scene you would also like Racked Chicago on Facebook. If you don't have Facebook, well, then you're the only one in the world and you should be on Twitter instead. We're on Twitter too @RackedChicago, but we're not flaming on our Twitter like we are on our Facebook. [The Management]
