Production began on 2nd March 1987 and 95% of the film was shot in the Windy City [Chicago, Illinois]. Director Brian Gilbert
literally blanketed the metropolis with his cameras. For example, the department store in the story, Vigar and Avery, was actually a combination of four different stores. The exterior was filmed outside of Marshall Fields on State Street. The downstairs level was shot inside of Marshall Field's Water Tower store, the executive offices were filmed in the former corporate headquarters of Montgomery Ward, and the other levels of the department store were the Park Lane Shopping center in suburban Oak Park.
