Likewise, Windy City Chicago is planning to organize its own shopping bonanza that would attract shoppers from around the world. The festival would concentrate around the Magnificent Mile, which is known for its high-end boutiques and expensive malls. The Magnificent Mile in Chicago also houses some of the country’s finest hotels, restaurants and entertainment spaces. The festival would last from Aug. 28 through Sept. 8. Lucky shoppers stand to gain discounts, gifts and even prizes.
For instance, one of the lucky shoppers would get to stay at the presidential suite in Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park Hotel. The Magnificent Mile shopping festival would also be the scene where big prizes, street performances and many other fun activities would be held. This Summer Shopping Festival sure is going to be one of the most talked about events in Chicago in the coming weeks.
