Target “popping up” in Chicago
Target is coming to the Magnificent Mile... but for only three days. The cheap-n-chic retailer plans to open a "pop-up" store later this week at 455 N. Michigan Ave., marking its debut on Chicago's famous shopping boulevard.
The temporary shop - called the Bullseye Bazaar - will operate May 7-9 in the space formerly occupied by the McCormick Freedom Museum adjacent to the Tribune Tower. Target will take over the first floor of the shuttered museum, showcasing a cross section of merchandise found in Target stores as well as offering a sneak peek at the Tracy Feith clothing collection before it hits stores. Shoppers also will get a look at furniture lines typically available only at Target.com as well as the Archer Farms private-label food line.
Now personally, I’m VERY bummed because I’m missing this event by just a matter of days. I need to travel to Chicago soon on business, but it’s the week after the Bullseye Bazaar. If there’s any readers from Chicago out there who decide to attend this, please write in and give us a report on how it was!
