Publisher Comments:

Whether you have just a day to blaze through town or want to do some serious browsing, this guide is for you.

> Shopping tours with a mission—beauty items, things for your home, cool

   clothes, and only-in-Chicago souvenirs

> 200 best-in-neighborhood picks, grouped by local area

> 13 maps pinpointing whats where in each neighborhood

> Store names in text and on maps color-coded by category

> Two PopOut maps showing the core of the city

> Backed by the experts at Where® magazine, which has been helping travelers

   find the fun since 1936

Synopsis:

Sophisticated shopping writeups taken from Where magazine, neighborhood maps marked to show store locations, and a full city's worth of detailed pop-out maps on the inside front and back covers will help travelers zero in on the most interesting shops wherever they are. A section of thematic shopping itineraries guides visitors all over the city to the best places for bargains, women's clothing, cooking items, and the like. Store suggestions are completely independent, provided by an passionate local shopaholic with a gift for making each store come to life on the page.

Synopsis:

Every neighborhood that matters to shopaholic travelers has its moment in this pocket-friendly guide. From Michigan Avenue to Wicker Park, the collection is thoughtful and finely tuned. Readers will find not only traditional favorites, the chains and the malls that some travelers from small towns in the Midwest simply don’t have at home, but also those perfect, small, out-of-the-way wonders that make a good trip great and that distinguish Chicago as the truly world-class city that it is.

About the Author

Jennifer Berg sometimes feels that she was born to shop, and she seizes every opportunity to download her latest find for publications such as DailyCandy and the twice-yearly Boutiqueville issues of Chicagos provocative alternative weekly, Newcity.

Joe Viesti has toured more than half the countries of the world to capture images for the National Geographic Society, American Express, Kodak, Nikon, Encyclopedia Britannica, the Ford Foundation, Microsoft, and AT&T, to name a few clients. His work is also represented in many volumes of books on travel, architecture, and design.
