Lonely Planet review for City of Chicago Store
This city-run store is a mecca for those wise enough not to try to steal their own ‘official’ souvenirs. Cheerful city workers will sell you anything from a decommissioned city parking meter ($175) to street signs for famous local streets ($50). The usual array of Chicago books, shot glasses and pint-sized metal replicas of the city’s tallest buildings are also available.
