There are two options for Bloomingdale’s in the downtown area: Bloomingdale’s Medinah Home Store and Bloomingdale’s. The home store is located in River North in what was once a temple for the Shriners, an intriguing Moorish building topped with an onion dome, with dark brown bricks and gorgeous stained glass. You’ll find a huge selection of bedding and home furnishings, along with a new department devoted entirely to Nespresso. Time it right in any department, and you could hit some great sales here. Even if you’re not interested in perusing the artfully displayed, high-end kitchen accessories and bathroom necessities, go for the architecture. About nine blocks away is the more traditional Bloomingdale’s, a six-level version of it, with cosmetics and accessories and apparel for men, women, and children, located in the 900 North Michigan Shops. The store always seems to be hosting a great sale, so look around for savings.
