Yesterday, on the fifth floor at Water Tower Place a vinyl banner was stretched onto a large storefront that advertises the coming of an A|X Armani Exchange. The space, number 503, which previously was home to French Connection is currently undergoing prep work by Englewood Construction for General Growth Properties. If all goes according to plan the new store will start interviewing potential workers within the next 3 months for an opening in September. This is the second A|X Armani Exchange store in the city and the sixth location in Illinois.
