    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.

    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

    Carson Pirie & Scott: Furniture and Furnishings on State Street

    by yooperprof Written Aug 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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. . .
