Chicago-based retailer will curate product lines and shopping experiences at Museum, O’Hare International Airport, and online
CHICAGO (August 6, 2018) – The Field Museum has selected Chicago’s own Rank + Rally as its official retail partner to advance the museum’s retail experience and offerings, crafting spaces and merchandise that embody the iconic institution’s new exhibits, attractions, and brand. Rank + Rally will direct and operate all retail outlets in the museum as well as shops at O’Hare International Airport and online. Through these spaces and products, the Field Museum and Rank + Rally aim to bring the next chapter of the famed research-based organization’s story to life for guests before, during, and after a visit.
The partnership will officially launch on January 1, 2019. Visitors can expect news about exciting new products, styles, and shopping experiences in the coming months.
“We were looking for a fresh way to continue to tell our story and extend our visitors experience at the Museum,” said Megan Williams, Director of Business Enterprises with the Field Museum. “Rank + Rally was perfectly suited to help us create an environment and allow our visitors to bring a memory of the Museum home with them, and we are very excited to start this partnership with them.”
“Few cultural institutions are as beloved as the Field Museum,” said Catherine Cronin, President of Rank + Rally. “We’re looking forward to tapping into the museum’s new vision, attractions, look, and feel to create new spaces that immediately spark a connection to people’s experiences during a visit.”
Rank + Rally has created and curated some of the most distinguished retail spaces and product lines with world class sports and entertainment brands. The company now extends that experience into cultural destinations and does so with extensive Windy City roots. Chicago-based Rank + Rally is part of hospitality leader Levy, also based in Chicago, and official retail partner of the United Center, where it has customized merchandise collections for concerts and other cultural events.
