We were told that the Mart was open the day after Thanksgiving. It was open but many of the stores were closed. We picked up quite a few ideas from the stores that were open.

I was here a number of years ago for a national business event. The site was well run and the history of the building itself was also interesting

We found that may merchants are closed on Saturdays and were very disappointed to find that this was one of them. Only a few stores open and we really wanted to check out the design stores. Thank goodness the Kohler store was open so our trip on the bus then the brown line wasn't a total waste of time.

Way out of my price range, but a person can dream. Some amazing kitchen set ups in this building. Can't even imagine having the money to buy this stuff.

My husband and I are shopping for fixtures and furnishings and we found everything we could ever want - and more at the Luxe Home boutiques. It's the first floor of Merchandise Mart, and the only one open to the public. We visited on a Saturday and arrived shortly after their opening at 10am. I would definitely recommend arriving early...

WE have for years come down to the Chicago Mart to place our orders and attend the sample sales. AS of Spring of 2012, most of the showrooms told us they were going out. WE were completely shocked and dismayed at the news. There was a fall sample sale arranged for Nove. of 2012 so we went. It's absolutely heartbreaking... More
