However, he left empty-handed.
The store provided ABC7 Chicago with surveillance video that apparently shows the suspect.
The manager at Plato's Closet believes the same person broke into a neighboring business.
Police say detectives are reviewing the tape.
"He waited until the very end to put on his hood. Then, it was a little bit too late. So, thank God we have that great picture of him," said Joe Brock of Plato's Closet.
"I'm extremely surprised. You know, this is a very safe area. We've been here for 18 years. So, I'm extremely surprised this happened," said Selections' Kona Hatcher.
A Sprint and U.S. Cellular store were also broken into. There was no word Saturday on whether anything was taken from those businesses.
