FULTON MARKET — Women's clothing retailer Free People will open their new Fulton Market shop Friday.
The new 10,950-square-foot Fulton Market store, at 1101 W. Randolph St., is the brand's sixth location in the Chicago area. The bi-level shop that specializes in trend and vintage clothing for women will officially open Friday, but the store is hosting an opening party from 6-8 p.m. Thursday.
Free People's full women's fashion line will be for sale on the first floor, while the second floor features a wholesale showroom.
Anthropolgie, another Urban Outfitters brand, has also signed a 10-year lease to open a store in the 1000 W. Randolph St. building a block away.
Free People first announced plans to open on Randolph in May 2016.
Sandwiched in between the neighborhood's destination restaurants and warehouses, more and more retailers are beginning to call the West Loop home. Lifestyle retail shop Rider, custom suit shop BLVDier, luxury retailer Billy Reid, Kit + Ace and M2057 by Maria Pinto all opened in the neighborhood in 2015.
Home to Google's Midwest headquarters, the booming Fulton Market neighborhood is poised to welcome a slew of new hotels in the next few years and McDonald's corporate headquarters at the old Harpo site in 2018.
