“Opening in Chicago is sort of a homecoming for me,” Snyder said. “Growing up in Iowa, Chicago was the ‘North Star’ of cities and I quickly developed a love for the humanities, architecture and in fact, the retail it had to supply. Since founding my brand in 2011, we’ve spent a whole lot of time growing Chicago to now be our fourth biggest e-commerce market, so when it was time to expand, this was a really essential market to finally plant physical roots and join the ranks of other premiere luxury brands here.”
