The South Shore Chamber is launching a new storefront activation project called Play, See, Shop South Shore at 1900-1912 E. 71st Street. Our Grand Opening is Saturday and Sunday, January 14th & 15th from 11-7pm. Sponsored by Chicago's Business Affairs and Consumer Protection this Activation Hub will run from now through March 30, 2023. We have taken 5 vacant storefronts and created 3 amazing new activations:

Connect Art Gallery - 1904 E. 71st Street
