Target to exit far south side neighborhoods #6WardChicago

Another great report per Worlee Glover, the Target on 87th & Cottage Grove and on 115th/Marshfield (off of the I-57 expressway) will close their doors next year. The Target in Chatham opened in the fall of 2002 and was often advertised as a great moment for the Chatham community. Almost on par with the opening of Wal-Mart on 83rd or even opening Whole Foods Market Englewood.

I'm sad to see Target leave though. Though I wasn't always a regular shopper I do know a few people who were. It's great not to have to go to the suburbs to go to a Target. Before that store opened probably would've visited stores in nearby Crestwood, Calumet City (now closed), or even Burbank. And yeah I know low patronage probably isn't the only reason why Target is shutting this store down.

On the other hand since we're losing Target, what could we find to replace it? We don't need a vacant big box store in Chatham for sure.
