Fashion Outlets of Chicago
With more than 180 outlet stores, Fashion Outlets of Chicago offers Chicago-area shoppers a plethora of choices that span two floors packed with merchandise available at a deep discount. With its entire shopping area under one roof, shoppers don’t have to brave the lake winds of downtown Chi-Town to get great fashion at fabulous prices.
With free parking in a covered garage and discounts up to 75% every day, not just during after-holiday sales, the Fashion Outlets of Chicago attracts native Chicagoans and tourists alike. Only a five-minute drive from O’Hare International, and 15 minutes from the city center, the outlet mall, in suburban Rosemont, has positioned itself to attract visitors from all over the Chicago metropolitan area.
With outlet stores run by high-end retailers Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, the Fashion Outlets of Chicago is sure to attract an upscale clientele. World-renowned design houses such as Gucci, Michael Kors, Prada, Burberry, and Tory Burch also have staked out territory in the outlet mall. Other well-known national brands such as J. Crew, Swarovski, Under Armour, Cole Haan, Forever 21, Banana Republic, and many more all have outlets there, making the fashion outlet mall a force to be reckoned with among Chicagoland retailers.
Fast food choices abound in the food court, as well as an upscale restaurant, Villagio, for shoppers who want a more relaxed dining experience. Wheelchairs and strollers can be rented, and there are currency exchange booths for those who have just arrived from outside the country.
One of the outlet mall’s most attractive features for travelers is their BAGS, Inc. program. This service, certified by the TSA, allows Fashion Outlet visitors to print their boarding passes, and then check their luggage and their shopping bags through to their final destination. Indeed, the Fashion Outlets of Chicago is a serious shopper’s paradise for travelers who can’t quite kick their shopping Jones before skipping town.
For a mere $5, serious shoppers can also purchase a Green Savings Card, which offers a plethora of discounts and buying incentives. If the card can save you more than $5, the card has saved you cash. Most shoppers find that they can save much more than their initial investment on their first trip to the mall, provided they need a few things.
Fashion Outlets of Chicago, however, can become addictive. With every day discounts totaling up to 75%, bargain hunting can quickly become more than a spectator sport.
