According to our friends at Curbed, the Blackhawks store on Michigan Avenue is about to expand. The store occupies a spot in the Art Deco skyscraper at 333 North Michigan Avenue. The building is currently undergoing a $48 million renovation, and plans about the Blackhawk store's fate—would it stay or would it go?—had been unclear.
Now, reps confirm that the sporty shop will not only stay, but expand to more than twice its current size. What will the new, bi-level hockey shrine sell? Not many upsets here: the team's official website lists "licensed clothing," "game-worn jerseys," and "hats" as some of the inventory items.
