We're not sure if you noticed, but there's a new store at 56 E Chicago Ave at Rush. It's called Couples Corner and it sells an array of adult items including lingerie and the Fifty Shades of Gray series. The store has been open for about 2 weeks and upon our visit today - it looks like business is booming. We always felt like the world's second largest Anthropologie and Italian cashmere house, Marlowe needed co-tenancy of this nature. After all, the Viagra Triangle IS what the Gold Coast is known for.
