My first exposure to Garrett's popcorn was as a gift & it was some of the best popcorn that I had ever eaten so when I found out that it hailed from Chicago, I made it a point to drop in and get some on our trip. This location was just steps off of Michigan Ave making it a popular... More

Don't get me wrong this is a Chicago iconic store and their popcorn is extremely good but it's really really expensive, I found Montgomery Popcorn Shop now called Ken's Popcorn in Aurora to not only be a third of the price if even, but it is just as good if not better... So next time try n go west for... More

I made it with only 10 mins left of the shop being open. The staff were still warm and welcoming. They even helped me figure out what flavor and size to get because I was in a rush since I knew they wanted to close. Then to top it off they didn't charge me taxes because today was tax day!... More

Not only the best caramel popcorn, the best employees! We are only an hour from Chicago and whenever we drive in, we make it a point to stop at Garretts. And when family or friends come in for a visit, always on the to do list. Last time we flew out for a family get together, we brought them Garrets,... More

For years I waited in line for the warm caramel corn, not realizing what I was missing out on with Garrett's mix. Couldn't imagine cheese and caramel would compliment each other so deliciously. Now, I just buy extra to make up for lost time ;)

Cheese and Carmel popcorn is my favorite mix. Perfect balance of salty and sweet. This too will become your favorite popcorn!

You can not leave Chicago without trying Garrett's, even if you don't love popcorn you must try Garrett's. If you like popcorn you will be in popcorn love with Garrett's. The line is long for a reason....the popcorn is delicious. The best is the Chicago mix which is sweet caramel with salty (finger licking) cheese popcorn mixed together but they... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
