Wal-Mart plans 2 more S. Side stores - Chicago Sun-Times

Wal-Mart expansion continues on the South Side at there will be a Wal-Mart "Neighborhood Market" to be located at 76th & Ashland. Also expected is a smaller Wal-Mart convenience store (prolly an "Express" store like what is to be opened at Chatham Market in the near future before the Wal-Mart "Supercenter" will open) in the same West Englewood area.

The Sun-Times noted that the "Neighborhood Market" would be located in the 17th Ward, home of Ald. Latasha Thomas who is currently in a run-off campaign to retain her city council seat.

Hey what's a "Neighborhood Market" anyway?
Neighborhood Market is a mid-sized format for city neighborhoods, a condensed version of the big-box Wal-Marts. The company previously has announced plans for a Neighborhood Market in the Presidential Towers apartment complex in the West Loop.
In other news Wal-Mart seems poised to expand in Chicago's North side in the Lakeview community as per this article from CBS2Chicago via Curbed.
