Sustainable outdoor lifestyle brand, Timberland which for months has been building out a N Michigan Avenue storefront is finally opening this Friday August 10. The store will sell men’s and women’s apparel, accessories, Chicago-specific products and (duh) their iconic footwear.
The space is designed to reflect the company’s long-standing commitment to sustainability, and was built with the environment in mind. The store features include reclaimed wood and industrial machinery, used for table bases; recycled stoneware floor tiles; FSC-certified woods; reduced-wattage LED lighting; Energy Star-eligible equipment and appliances; low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints; and water-conserving plumbing fixtures.
