On October 16, our fourth annual Racked Awards gala celebration is taking place in NYC, where we'll toast our country's best and brightest retail stars. We'll announce one winner daily leading up the party. We asked you where you love to shop, and you voted for Fashion Outlets of Chicago as the winner of Best Shopping Center, choosing from 500 N Michigan, Block 37, Shop at North Bridge, and Water Tower Place.
Located in Rosemont, Fashion Outlets of Chicago brought outlet shopping and deals closer to the heart of the city. The two floor outlet mall is home to 130 stores, ranging from high-end labels to department stores to mainstream brands at up to 75% off . Some favorites include: Gucci, Michael Kors, Prada, and Theory.
Several stores with only one Midwest outlet presence can be found at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago—Barney's New York Warehouse, Brunello Cucinelli, Burberry, Diane Von Furstenberg, Etro, Moncler, Ports 1961, Tory Burch Outlet, and the only Herve Leger outlet in the world.
Fashion Outlets of Chicago houses not only great retail, but also great art. Throughout the mall contemporary art installations are integrated into the architectural framework of the property in partnership with The Arts Initiative.
