Like it or not its time to start shopping for holiday gifts. Yep that time you love to hate, hate to love whichever category you fall in, it’s got to get done. Questions like What do I get mom? dad? best friend Jim etc. can be solved with a shopping trip. We think there’s one place that can solve it without you having to worry about driving. Chicago’s Premium Outlets in Aurora is your shopping destination. City side transportation options ranging from lyfts, CTA, taxi, users, zip car are aplenty but to head out to Aurora though?!
Kate Spade, Max Mara, Hugo Boss, Coach for Men, J Crew & CrewCuts, Cole Haan Tag Heur and more are all there. The mall knows that some of us city dwellers live and roam the city without cars but love to shop, enter the Holiday Shopping shuttle. For a mere $19.99 (have you seen gas prices lately?!) you can sit back let someone else do the driving and all you have to worry about is who will make your gift giving shopping list this year.
We tested the shuttle and it’s legit. Boarded the bus at Adams/Monroe and arrived at the shopping outlets 40 minutes later(it was during the day light traffic)
Since retailers are clamoring for your hard earned dollars, there will be ton of sales and with Black Friday right around the corner, even better. Max Mara had some amazing dresses and coats (ask for Angelica). Coach For Men had plethora of leatherware for men including briefcases, weekend bags, bubble jackets and wool coats.
Love Essie but hate paying $8 for it? The company store has selections for $5.49 and even had the Clarisonic system on discount.
The Kate Spade store stocked with bags, ipad, macbook cases to wallets, jewelery and much more. Loooove JCrew for men and women and Crewcuts? They have that too. We would suggest going during off peak times (during the day on weekdays).
If you book through the shuttle you also receive a VIP coupon book, the extra savings on top of the ones from the store is icing on the shopping cake. The shuttle runs Friday-Sunday and for the upcoming Black Friday shopping it will depart Union Station at: 8:45am, 12pm and 4pm
The holiday shuttle is being run by Windy City Limousine and you can call Call (866) 949-4639 to make your reservation. Happy Shopping.
PS-We do NOT condone Thanksgiving day shopping, so tacky. It’s a time to eat, eat, watch football, drink and enjoy quality family+friends time.
