Chicago retailers are taking giant leaps across short spaces this week. First, we got the news that Virtu is moving across the street; now, we hear that J. Crew at the 900 Shops has relocated across the hall. (Thank you, tipster, for the early heads up.)
Still on Level 2, the new store has a Wedding Preview boutique and a Ludlow suit shop for men. "It's large, but sectioned off into smaller, boutique-feeling spaces that house men's and women's fashions," said a rep for the 900 Shops. Each section has subsections for accessories, denim, and beachwear, and the spring collection has already hit the floor.
