A reader sends us an email which definitely gave us a chuckle:
Just walked by 1620 s Michigan and there is a pink sign up for OMG spa coming soon.
Sign says hair and nails. Apparently michigan s of Roosevelt is becoming a real "spa" corridor, whatever that means...
It is a great observation and definitely is mind boggling to think about how all of these businesses can stay open when you would think they would cannibalize each other. Clearly the overhead expenses are low.
Regardless, it is nice to see some retail activity come to the long vacant 1620 S. Michigan (besides a temporary real estate office and a storage center).
