Chicagoans are about to head into the office this weekend.
Fans of The Office will get the feel for what it’s like to be a Dunder Mifflin employee at The Office Experience, an interactive pop-up inspired by the popular NBC documentary-style sitcom about the fictional paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The experience is officially open at at 540 N Michigan Ave on Friday (October 15).
The Office Experience will take fans through Instagram-worthy set recreations, including Schrute Farms, Dunder Mifflin and more. Visitors can “relive Jim and Pam’s iconic romance,” see original costumes and props from the show and “engage with the show in new ways, according to The Office Experience. There’ll also be Office-themed merch (though it “might be too flashy for Angela”). The Office — which starred Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson and other fan-favorites — premiered in 2005 and ended after nine seasons in 2013, though the comedy series earned a renewed surge in popularity thanks to streaming services and new podcasts centered around the show (hosted by actors who brought some of the beloved characters to life).
Organizers of The Office Experience note health and safety guidelines in place, including frequent cleaning, mask requirements and making hand sanitizing stations available, among others.
