Summer is closing out, and that means major price cuts on the garb you've had you eyes on for the last couple of months. Bucktown is laced with some of the coolest stores in the city, so start your sale shopping on Damen Avenue. You'll find major discounts from the likes of Helen Yi, P.45 and Vivid Braille—but sales aren't just for the ladies, either. RSVP Gallery and Apartment Number 9 hacked prices to clear out the old (and make room for the new!). Wander on the side streets, or make your way down Milwaukee to hit some other Chicago favorites like Eskell and Rudy's Roundup (their closing-out sale is insane!) If you're down with the sale tour this week, check out the list of shops you cannot miss.—Mackenzie Nielson
