Positive Progress Pushes Patagonia

Patagonia store under construction

Our Gold Coast Spy sends us a visual update on the new Patagonia store going in at 48 East Walton Street in Chicago’s Gold Coast.  From the outside, things look pretty complete.  Might it be open in time for Black Friday?

It’s interesting to note that Chicago has developed something of a cold weather clothing belt on the Gold Coast.  In the last few years, The North Face, Columbia, Burton, and Patagonia have all opened up shops within a couple of blocks of each other.  Not far away is an Eddie Bauer store, too. They must be attracted to that wind that blows around the corner of the Drake Hotel (140 East Walton Street) all the time.
