INTRODUCING: For The First Time Ever, The Indie 38

View as Map

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Chicagoans more than East, and West Coasters, are rooted in our neighborhoods -- and we're gosh darn proud of it. Through these pockets of culture scattered throughout the city there are plenty of little shops and boutiques to support. To acknowledge our weighty feelings toward small, independently-owned businesses we've made for the first time ever, The Indie 38.

In our ultimate list of local shops, leaving out members of The Racked 38, we've included a high-end, mid range and very accessible array of places to spend your cash from Pilsen to Roscoe Village. Feel like we've left out somebody who deserves to be in The Indie 38? Let us know via the Racked tip line or by leaving a comment.
