About Carson's Department Store in Chicago IL

Carson's Offers Timeless Quality to America's Heartland

When a business sticks around for more than a century, it must be doing something right, and a trip to Carson's in Chicago, on 120 South Riverside Plaza will show you why residents of four states have trusted us since 1854. Our store offers a wide array of quality merchandise at competitive prices, and we back everything up with our dedication to top-notch customer service.

Rising From the Ashes

Our story starts with two Irish immigrants who survived a shipwreck during their journey to the United States. Within a few years of starting their first dry goods store in 1854, Samuel Carson and John T. Pirie found themselves running one of America's first chain stores with locations in four different cities. After losing our headquarters to the Great Chicago Fire in 1871, we spent the next 140 years expanding to a total of 51 stores across Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana. Every Carson's stands as a monument to the relationships we've built by doing business in the Midwest for more than 160 years.

Diverse Offerings

Some stores specialize in one type of product, which means you could end up spending your whole weekend chasing down every item on a long shopping list. Each of our locations is a complete department store that lets you save a ton of time by browsing products from a wide range of categories:

  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Housewares
  • Cosmetics
  • Apparel
  • Bed and bath

If you're in a hurry, be sure to take advantage of our store pickup option with your eligible online orders. Simply shop on our website and pick up your items within a few hours without incurring shipping charges.

When it's time for your next shopping trip, turn to your city name of store for the customer service experience you deserve. For more information, you can contact us online or give us a call at 800-945-4438 today.
