GANT HEADS TO CHICAGO: Gant Rugger will open its first store in the Midwest next week, a 2,000-square-foot space in Chicago. Located at 1702 North Damen Avenue in the Bucktown area, the unit will be the largest Gant Rugger store in the U.S. when it opens July 1. Restored metal-framed windows front the space, with the airy interior incorporating custom mahogany bookshelves, Danish midcentury furniture and salvaged wood floors covered in Persian rugs. The store joins four existing Gant Rugger stores in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco; three Gant stores in New York, Boston and Georgetown, and a Gant Campus store in New Haven.
