Daily Concepts has big love for Chicago’s Merz Apothecary locations. Yep, you can find Daily Concepts products on their shelves!
As for the Q Brothers, we got mad crushes on them a while back. They showed us some love, too, on their YouTube page (see Daily Concepts review below).
So what are the Q Brothers up to now? Well, as of Monday, they have their own men’s shop! Yep, that’s it pictured in the photo at the top of this post. Right next door to the 139-year-old, flagship Merz Apothecary on North Lincoln Avenue. What’s behind the store’s doors?
Well, you might just see the Q Brothers themselves — Anthony, Gregory and Jeffrey Qaiyum. Then there are the other entities they’ll be sporting — their current facial hair proliferations. As Anthony recently said in an interview with DNAinfo, “There’s a misconception that guys with beards don’t shave. Most guys shape and shave around their beard.”
Thus the shopping boon that Anthony has been quoted as saying sees Chicago locals making pit stops at Merz en route to O’Hare Airport.
What’s on the shelves? “Q Brothers is an expansion of all our men’s grooming and shaving products,” Project Manager Kristen Romaniszak told Daily Concepts. “It also houses our growing unique and fine fragrance section, making us a destination for wet shaving enthusiasts and fragrance aficionados alike.”
Per DNAInfo, be on the lookout for, “… iKon razors, U.S.-made artisanal shaving creams and international brands like France’s Thiers Issard, which makes highly regarded straight razors.” Also on tap, says DNAInfo, “cult favorite Tauer perfumes from Switzerland and Bois 1920 fragrances from Italy.”Tauer
Congrats, Q Brothers! We’re psyched to visit you ourselves someday soon.
