Rent The Runway to Debut Chicago Storefront

Rent the Runway will open the doors to a Gold Coast storefront Thursday, making Chicago the third city to host a freestanding store from the popular online retailer.

The company’s CEO and co-founder Jennifer Hyman told Chicago Magazine they chose to come to the Windy City because it is already home to some of its most loyal customers, and they wanted to bring them the opportunity to rent, see and try on the designer duds in person.

The magazine reports the shopping experience will offer in-store styling appointments and same-day rentals.

Borrowing a dress for a long four-day weekend could run anywhere from $30 to upwards of $800, the publication reports. Designer accessories will also be available to rent.

Chicago’s Rent the Runway will be located at 710 N. Wabash Ave. and open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
