From our friends in the nitty gritty retail sector we affectionately refer to as "Off Michigan Avenue", we hear that the entrance to sub-street level tenant (below the closed Culti Milano shop) Rochester Big & Tall on Chestnut will soon be closed off, as in, sealed... maybe forever. Rochester Big & Tall... we know, "Racked, WTF you talkin' bout Rochester Big & Tall for?" Well, not that we know when any of this is going to happen, and we wouldn't have brought it up if a few weeks ago there weren't people milling about in the ceilings on the second and third floors of the building where Escada used to be--but it brings us one hopelessly hopeful step closer to a 5-storey flagship (of some sort) with fast escalators from top to bottom. Perhaps Uniqlo?
