Augustine watched employees at the new Ugg Australia boot and shoe store launch the location with a ribbon cutting, then stepped inside to shop for boots she’ll need for cold winter walks to class when she heads to college.
“I want new UGGs so I figured I’d go to the Ugg outlet,” she said. “I’m going to DePaul so I figure I’ll need lots of warm stuff.”
Other stores that opened Thursday include Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Clarins luxury skin care, Robert Graham clothing, Abercrombie Fitch Outlet, The Limited Outlet, Old Navy Outlet, Tommy Hilfiger Kids and Vince apparel.
