Downtown Tucson has had its ups and downs but the Chicago Store has been serving music lovers for 90 years from their location on Congress Street. The building itself is famous, too, with its kooky murals and I think I read that it is getting some kind of facade facelift as part of the ongoing downtown revitalization. A branch location recently opened on Speedway ~ very sleek and modern. To read more about them and see photos of the new store, click here. Photo courtesy of Roseann Milano.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
