Chicago's go-to neighborhood for boutique shopping, Wicker Park, will be the scene of a serious "last-call" sidewalk sale next month. On August 17 and 18 from 11am to 6pm, the stores that line Division, Damen, Ashland, North, Western and Milwaukee will slash prices on sale items and launch pop-up sidewalk shops.
The event coincides with Chicago Fashion Fest, the full-on fashion extravaganza that will completely shut down Division Street. More than 60 boutiques are joining in and the current list of participants appears after the jump.
