Corinne just shot me the press release for the opening of the new Chrome Chicago store. There’s been a bit of buzz about it lately and now its official! Check the official press release below…and peep Chrome of course!
San Francisco, Calif. (May 11, 2011) – Chrome, the world’s leading manufacturer of bike
messenger bags, footwear and urban cycling apparel, is proud to announce their third retail flagship store
coming to Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. The Chicago shop follows in the footsteps of their first
and second shopfronts located in San Francisco and New York City, respectively.
Chrome Chicago opens its doors to all Saturday June 4, 2011 with a continued commitment to bikes and
the people who ride them.
“We’re super excited to open our Chicago shop,” says Chrome Director of Marketing, Matt Sharkey. “Our
shops are more than just a place to get the newest Chrome gear. People can build a custom bag at our
Chrome Customs sewing station, discover new music after hours at our Third Thursdays monthly music
series, discover new artists, hang out and watch bike and skate videos, start or end an alleycat race, or
just stop in to find out about city hot spots. We really see these shops as regional community hubs, and
can’t wait to watch it all unfold in Chicago.”
