Meet your friends under the Great Clocks for a day of shopping at Macy’s on Chicago’s legendary Loop. With nine stories of clothes, furniture, and house wares, a trip to this landmark department store can help you upgrade your wardrobe, home, and life all in one afternoon. Marvel at the gorgeous 1892 building, with its massive granite pillars, three-tiered waterfall fountain, and iconic Tiffany glass ceiling. Use your pals as a support system, asking them to weigh in on which dress will work better for a hot date, or which tie matches your buddy’s new dress shirt. And take advantage of services you won’t find shopping online by signing up for a fashion trend seminar—which includes time with a personal shopper—or quizzing the sales associates in the various boutiques on the most stylish looks for the season. After you’ve loaded up on the essentials (and a few splurges) head to the seventh floor, where the Walnut Room restaurant has been an oasis for weary shoppers since 1907. A round of ice-cold martinis under the breathtaking Austrian chandelier will help you end your day out with friends on a sophisticated note.
