Rumors have been flying for months about a Magnolia Bakery in Chicago. Today we have confirmation that it is a reality! According to Chicago Breaking Business, Magnolia Bakery has signed a lease for 2,550 square feet in the Block 37 shops. The NYC cupcake haven, made famous by Sex and the City, will be located on the first floor of the indoor mall and is slated to open in June. We can't wait to welcome them with open mouths.
