    Chicago Southern/Western Burbs- where can I find these seats?

    This is more for future reference than something I need to do right now .

    I think I'm going to need to see and try out a few boosters (specifically parkway sg, recaro probooster, sunshine kids monterey, etc) at a B&M store in the area sometime in the relatively near future. There's buy buy baby in... Downers Grove? Do they have a good selection? I live in that city know for it's prisons and the blues brothers (I'm trying to be cryptic on purpose, feel free to say the towns name in reference to a store but please don't say "Oh, wow, CelticLabyrinth you live in XYZ?!"). I'm pretty certain our selection of baby stores is limited to BRU. Thanks!

    Yes, there is a buy buy baby in Downers Grove- near the Cheeseburger in Paradise. They have a good selection of seats. They are building one in Orland next to Binny's, behind the Dick's but not sure when that one will be ready. (I live in the town next to you so I know these will work for you.)

    Yeah, there used to be a Right Start in Lombard, I think, but it closed. They still have one in Lincoln Park, that's a crazy long haul. I've been meaning to call Buy Buy Baby and find out when it's opening in Orland. They had a pretty selection last time I was there, but that was a while ago.

    I live a few towns from you!

    You can try the Parkway SG in Naperville;-) I was just at BuyBuyBaby a few weeks ago. I know they had the Radian. Can't remember if I saw the Monterey on the shelf.

    Still working on Recaro for review samples. They never answer emails:-( Hopefully they will be at ABC Kids Expo.

    I too am from the city of Blues Brothers (but I prefer to refer to it as the city where ketchup on hotdogs is illegal lol)

    Anywho, I thanked your post because I came on here to post almost the exact same thing- I need to check out a Radian in person. Good to know about BuyBuyBaby- going to call them tomorrow AM.
