    Carson, Pirie Scott was one of the 2 major department stores in Chicago with a long local history. It was closed a number of years ago, but recently was taken over by Target. The discussions on how to display the Target logo were long, but I think it's worked out nicely. Inside it is very clean with bold colors, while retaining the old architectural features. The cast metal and curved glass facade is an unique example of Chicago architecture.

    Various: More State Street shopping

    by Dabs Updated Apr 26, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    State Street, "That Great Street", used to be THE place for shopping in Chicago, now the most popular place to shop is the Magnificent Mile of Michigan Avenue.

    But there are still reasons to head to State Street the former flagship Marshall Field's which is now a Macy's (see separate tip), the Louis Sullivan designed Carson Pirie Scott department store (closed in early 2007 but the building is still cool); Nordstrom Rack, Filene's Basement, TJ Maxx and Loehmann's for those of you looking for a bargain; H&M for the younger crowd.

    If you get hungry while shopping, you are within walking distance of many fine restaurants including the Atwood Cafe in the Hotel Burnham, Heaven on Seven on Wabash, the 7th floor of Macy's which has an express version of Frontera Grill, Park Grill, The Gage and a variety of other choices that you can see on the attached website.

    What to pay: You can spend as much as you will buy but is it not very expencive.

    Carson Pirie & Scott: Furniture and Furnishings on State Street

    entrance to the furniture department, off Madison

    If you are coming to Chicago to look for things to decorate your home or apartment, or to investigate furniture options, don't figure the classic old department stores on State Street. They really do have excellent "departments" for interior design - and their prices are quite reasonable. (If only shipping weren't so expensive!)

    Carson Pirie & Scott has some very nice coffee tables - maybe on my next trip to Chicago. . .

    Marshall Field's - State Street location: A "must see"!

    by spunkygirl60637 Written Jan 14, 2004

    This is a CLASSIC department store, filled with all kinds of great merchandise. The store employees are helpful, too!

    It's a really nice place to browse, even if you buy nothing.

    What to buy: winter clothing! Seriously, at Field's, you can find just about anything. What I truly love, though, is the amazing candy department in the basement.

    Also, don't miss the Frango mints and other varieties of Frango candies!!!

    What to pay: It's an upscale store, but you can find bargains in the sales racks. And the candy (in the basement) isn't too expensive.

    Old Navy: State Street Shopping

    by londonlover Written May 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the area's biggest Old Navy stores, that bastion of American pop fashion. I never find much there, but I know a lot of tourists would like to see it. This one is on State Street, adjacent to Marshall Fields.

    What to pay: moderate to inexpensive
