The company currently has a Lincoln Park store on a stretch of Armitage Avenue that is home to several online retailers with offline stores where customers can check out goods in person. Bonobos, eyewear shop Warby Parker, men's accessories shop Tie Bar and interior design company Interior Define sit within two blocks of one another. Though some 900 North Michigan Shops offer showrooms or bespoke items, Bonobos will be the shopping center's first store where shoppers can't walk out with purchased goods, said 900 Shops spokeswoman Lauren Edelman. After customers visit the Bonobos store, their purchased items will be sent from the Massachusetts warehouse.
