Kiehl's Michigan Avenue Flagship opened on November 16 of last year sadly sans-airplane, breaking Facial Fuel sales records and making their mark in the Thanksgiving day parade.
The 1,277 square foot shop has 19-foot high ceilings, higher than any Kiehl's nationwide. This high ceilings have allowed iconic Kiehl’s imagery to be more impactful than ever before, using more props than before. The photobooth and motorcycle have been in place for awhile now but the airplane just flew in this past week.
High up above all in the front of the store there's a scale replica of a bi-plane originally owned by Aaron Morse, the second-generation family member who headed the company beginning in the 1960s.
