Shopping malls take on a whole different meaning once you become a mother. As a teen, you were probably looking for a place to hang out all day. Most moms, however, are just trying to grab what they need and go, and maybe, if they’re lucky, have a chance to buy a grande mocha latte from Starbucks before one of the kids throws an epic ‘hangry’ tantrum or has a diaper blow out.
Luckily, at Fashion Outlets of Chicago, moms are never far from mind.
For kids only
You no longer have to trek all the way across the mall, through the crowd, with kids in tow, because the two stores you want to visit are on opposite ends.
At Fashion Outlets of Chicago, the majority of the mall’s family-friendly retailers are housed in what’s known as the children’s wing.
Disney Outlet, Carter’s, Oshkosh B’gosh, Stride Rite and more of your favorites are just steps from each other, making that get-in-and-get-out-quickly plan all the more accessible.
Deals and steals
Kids clothes can get expensive. Factor in the amount of time they’ll actually wear certain outfits (hello, growth spurts), and the cost per wear is high. Just in case you didn’t gather this from the name, every store at Fashion Outlets of Chicago offers up to 75 percent off regular retail prices.
Want more ways to save? Purchase a Green Savings Card for $5, and receive additional discounts in 90 participating stores, equaling more than $800 in savings.
At your service
Concierge services are generally reserved for hotel stays, not trips to the mall. Or so you thought.
Have a question? You can text the concierge desk staff at 847-957-4600, and you’ll receive a response within two minutes during the mall’s regular operating hours. Don’t want to lug all your packages? They’ll deliver your packages to your home, office or hotel within a 10-mile radius (for a nominal fee)!
Visit them for stroller rentals and gift wrap, also.
Kids are generally better behaved when they’re fed. Can’t we all relate? Luckily, most of the quick-service restaurants offer kids’ menu options.
And if you’re looking for more than a quick bite, pop across the street for a sit-down meal at MB Financial Park, home to Sugar Factory American Brasserie, Fogo de Chao and Hofbrauhaus Chicago.
Fashion Outlets of Chicago has raised the bar of what moms can expect of their mall experience. Your shopping expectations might never be the same again.
