Walmart in Chicago?

Saxon Capital LLC is reporting a signed lease by Wal-mart Stores Inc. at 225 W. Chicago.  For those of you familiar with the location, that is located right beneath the Brown Line CTA station, at the corner of Franklin and Chicago.

The store will be housed in the old art supply building, as is approximately 14,000 square feet.

The idea of a Walmart as drawn high criticism from many residents of Chicago in the past, but it looks as if this deal could be a stepping stone to further Walmart’s in the future.
