Confirmed: First West Elm Location in Chicago

Back in February (brrrr - we don't even want to think about last winter!), we put together a post, based on an email from a reader about the possible locations for the first West Elm in the city. According to their website, is set to open this Fall and now we know exactly where...

The other day, we stopped in at Peets and on our way out saw the sign pictured above, which had just been unveiled. The old Whole Foods at the corner of North and Sheffield is currently being transformed into a shiny, new (very big?!) West Elm.

Construction has been underway in the space pretty steadily all summer, so possibly the opening estimate of "Fall 09" as listed will be accurate. Now, we're looking forward to our first-ever West Elm visit!
