Coming off the heels of a big sale last week the Banana Republic flagship on Michigan Ave has started a store remodel this week. Right now, merchandise has been condensed to the first and third floors while the fourth and second floors undergo the modifications.

This is the first in a 2-part remodel each part lasting roughly 2-months each. Look forward to an all-new paint job, a new ground floor and fourth floor layout, new flooring and updated fixturing. The store is staying open during construction and the last of the sale merchandise that doesn't make it into shopping bags by the end of the month will be shipped to other stores.
