Snap to reality: In case you missed the news, e-tailers are going brick and mortar. On the forefront is Piperlime, Warby Parker, Net-a Porter and Chicago's favorite online consignment business, Luxury Garage Sale. Known for their pop-up events, the company's increased visibility has led to increased sales which leads to more scouting for clients to drop-off their stuff or arrange for a pick-up.
All this growth means moving out of their offices west of the interstate and a relocation to Old Town. Construction has begun and the girls are already picking out furniture to fill out the space for (hopefully) an August opening.
In the new store there will be a space for all back of house production people like the photographers and copyrighters for the eBay business. In the front of the store all high end items and premiere items will be shoppable including vintage jewelry which is currently not sold online, just at markets and pop-ups.
