Stores, design, shopping, bank. Very nice. You can get lost in time, yet it also has the new and improve enhancements.

“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

So much to see, so huge an area to conquer. Was told during a tour that at one time this 2 square block building had it's own zip code. Plenty of places to eat, bank and shop inside. Can be overwhelming and quite disheartening when you see how the truly wealthy outfit and furnish their homes/condos. The best of the best, spare no expense. Great for ideas on building or renovating. Great selection of materials, lighting, plumbing fixtures, etc.

“It's a landmark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

Of course you want to go into the Mart. There are so many beautiful product displays such as furniture and household items, but done in a way you have never seen. So classy, so historical, and so interesting to view.

“HUGE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

Known in Chicago simply as "the Mart". I attended a Home Decorating exhibit/show at the Mart. The event had hundreds of interior room vignettes to display wares and decor. The enormity of this building is daunting. I believe that entrance to the Mart is limited but there are a few "open" days available to the public. If you have an opportunity to go, you will not be disappointed.

“If you looking to remodel, decorate or renovate this is the place for you!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

This building has so many great stores from tile stores, wood floor stores, kitchen cabinets etc. I was really impressed. My husband and I spendd 2 hours here just browsing around. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to remodel, decorate or renovate. If you are hungry they even have a food court.
