Just landed in our inbox: Official news from Target that the company will be opening one of its first-ever small-format stores in Chicago—at the corner of South State Street and Madison Street East in the restored Carson Pirie Scott building (now known as Sullivan Center)—in 2012. The small-format stores, set to roll out across several markets nationwide will be called CityTarget.
“I applaud Target for bringing this urban store concept to Chicago, as well as the new jobs and economic opportunity this store will create,” said Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. “Target will be an important addition to State Street, one of Chicago’s most important retail centers, and will be located in one of the city’s most architecturally significant buildings.”
