We are planning a trip to see my daughter in Chicago area this fall.
I haven't seen her and her husband in several years now. The last time we went there was a brick and mortar shaving store we went to.
For the life of me I can not remember what the name of it is.
Any help please?

I will be the third in line to say Merz Apothecary

And in case it is not, you need to go there anyway. Allow plenty of time and take lots of money.

Almost certainly it was Merz. They have two locations, one on the north side where they started, the other in the Palmer House hotel downtown,

I might add that the owners are some of the greatest folks around - a lot of fun.

Be sure to go to the Lincoln Square location. This is the original one on the far north side. Eat lunch at the German Brau Haus and check out the local shops. Funky bookstore/coffee shop, toy store, home decor and more. Cool little neighborhood it sits in, very walkable. Also, an awesome grocery right there nearly next door - go! Imported stuff a lot from Germany. The neighborhood is historically German and more than one employee has an accent.
