A.Okay Official . Chicago
Another stop during my rushed stay in Chicago was A.Okay Official. This store opened earlier this year by husband and wife team Jason and Jessica Uzarraga, and is a blend of all things enjoyed and interesting to them. Their primary stock is custom and limited edition sneakers, and collectible and custom modern toys. Their store is clean, sleek, merchandised well, and contains a large selection in the moderate sized space.
Completing this independent business are paintings and works by local artists adorning the walls, which range in styles and prices. The entire establishment has a local, unique vibe which fits the community perfectly. Got some well conditioned stuff to sell? They do consignment too. Check out this Chicago Reader Article for more info and photos.
A.Okay is at 3270 North Clark just north of Belmont. Online at aokayofficial.com
