Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Each time we walk by Niketown Chicago and we see the enormous multi-story barricade covering whatever is happening inside (if anything) we wonder when Nike is reopening their Michigan Avenue flagship, Niketown. Whelp, we've got a petite update for peace of mind...

...we have no clue. Nike Chicago isn't answering our tweets, our calls or our emails. However, we expect some sort of mystic communication soon because when they suddenly shuttered the only morsel of intelligence they gave us was that the store would re-open mid-September.
