Smart Strategies for Shopping the Magnificent Mile
Imagine this: You’re in Chicago and you’re walking past 460 stores as well as incredible hotels, attractions and restaurants as far as the eye can see. Does this sound like a dream come true? If so, the Magnificent Mile is for you. Don’t miss your chance to experience its glamour as you picture yourself strutting down the sidewalk with multiple shopping bags dangling from each arm. If you’re planning a spending spree soon, here are a few smart strategies for shopping the Magnificent Mile.
1. Plan Ahead
Start by browsing Magnificent Mile’s website to view the vast assortment of stores, boutiques and restaurants nearby. From there, you’ll be able to narrow down the places you “must” visit rather than wasting precious time and energy on stores you could have passed up.
2. Study the Map
Some people find it easiest to study an interactive map before planning out their day. The Magnificent Mile can be overwhelming, so having a visual guide can help you stay on track. Studying a map or keeping it open on your phone as you shop can also save you from missing a store or having to backtrack.
3. Bring a Friend
Shopping is even better when you bring a friend along. After all, who will give you their honest opinion on that trendy jacket you’re thinking about purchasing? And don’t forget about inviting someone to eat lunch with. There are too many tasty menu options to order just one plate!
Are apparel stores at the top of your “must visit” list? Or would you prefer to check out every pet boutique on the block?
