Target is excited to announce the addition of a new Chicago store in an iconic landmark at South State Street and Madison Street East. The small-format store will be the first store in a U.S. Historic Landmark at the newly restored Carson Pirie Scott building, now known as Sullivan Center. The company also announced that its small-format locations across the U.S. will be named CityTarget, to include the store in Chicago.
Whether they be commuters, tourists or urban dwellers, CityTarget will offer guests the convenience of one-stop shopping with affordable fresh food, apartment essentials, on-trend fashions and exclusive designer collections. The store will open in 2012 and create about 200 jobs locally. Target currently has 10 other stores in the city of Chicago.
“Target is honored to open a CityTarget on State Street,” said John Griffith, executive vice president, Property Development, Target. “We look forward to preserving this Chicago treasure and blending in with the building’s aesthetic. A hallmark of Target is our flexibility in store design, which allows us to bring high-quality products at great values to our urban guests.”
