FASHION OUTLETS OF CHICAGO: LUXE SHOPPING WHEN YOU’RE STUCK AT O’HARE

One thing I love about flight delays is having plenty of time to browse the airport shops. But at O’Hare International Airport, you’re not limited to the concourse merchants. Take a shuttle to nearby Fashion Outlets of Chicago and you’ll find more than 130 designer outlet stores, an impressive art collection and high-end amenities.

The two-level shopping center is anchored by Bloomingdale’s The Outlet Store, Forever 21, Last Call by Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th. How cool is that? Even better, the center has outlet stores unique to the Chicago area, including Barneys New York Warehouse, Burberry, DVF, Gucci, Joe’s Jeans, Prada and Tory Burch.

Add a touch of sweetness to your day at Lolli and Pops, a fantastic candy store with artisan truffles, chocolate room, gummy and jelly bean bars, and retro and international selections. Or stop by the Lindt Chocolate Bar Café for specialty chocolate drinks and confections.

The Concierge Services desk on the first level offers translation services and currency exchange. They’ll store your luggage while you meander through the mall, and then they’ll check and deliver it along with your shopping bags directly to your flight. Boarding passes are issued here too. (Nominal fees may apply.) A large video board tracks upcoming flight information.
