A Sloopin Retail Roundup

And the businesses keep on coming...

Over the weekend we had a lot of news on the business front in the Sloop.  Without further ado:

Dental Group of Chicago has moved into the building at the corner of Michigan and 16th (1556 S. Michigan).  They are open for business and are relocating to the Sloop after serving Rush hospital for 40 years.  Their sign also states that they have "Multi-Dentist and Specialist Groups serving all your dental needs in one location".

Annie's Accents officially opened this past Saturday (9/15) at 1237 S. Michigan (where House of Sole used to be).  According to a press release:
Anie’s Accents, in part, reflects the personal fashion sensibility of its owner (Andrea White). White’s own style of dress is casual and elegant, with a penchant for loose, flowing garments. And, although White prefers neutral colors for herself, she plans to delight her customers with vibrant accent colors that add “pop” to any ensemble.

Finally, Chicago Ink & Toner has opened its door at 824 S. Wabash.  This is the space where Canady Le Chocolatier used to be.  It's also ironic that Cartridge World closed it doors and a new Ink & Toner store has already opened up shop (we're guessing that this is happenstance as opposed to strategic).

Congrats to these three new businesses and welcome to the Sloop!  Best of luck!

  1. I miss Canady. You can't eat toner...

  2. I miss Canady too, that was one of my favorite places in the south Loop. I was so sad to see him go, I used to stop their weekly for Gelato...

  3. Michel Canady is no longer doing retail, but he is teaching classes out of a space on the west side. Details at
