Men’s Boutique Notre Goes the Pop-Up Route in Gold Coast

Chicago-based men’s boutique Notre is opening a 1,751-square-foot pop-up lease at the Waldorf Astoria at 11 E. Walton St. in Chicago’s Gold Coast district. The pop-up will be in place through December of this year.

CBRE’s Phil Golding, Todd Siegel and Kim Wiskup represented Notre in the lease. “By entering Chicago’s premier high-street retail market in the Gold Coast, this move shows the strength that the Notre brand has developed,” said Golding. “With this store, Notre will be able to gain more exposure to a new customer base, and continue its development as one of Chicago’s premiere boutique retailers.”

And notwithstanding its sizable online presence, Notre is also expanding its flagship Chicago store at 118 N. Peoria St. in the West Loop to 4,500 square feet. Currently, the firm occupies 1,800 square feet. The store will open in late 2018.
