This sounds exciting. Better this than a WalMart.

By now, the Tribune should know that they are located on the Magnificent Mile, not the Miracle Mile.

Maybe Zell will sell the Tribune Tower site to Target, if the pop up is successful.

North Michigan Avenue used to be such a beautiful street with beautiful stores. It truly was MAGNIFICIENT. Today, it's been trashed with chain stores one can find in any suburban mall. It certainly isn't what it used to be. So sad, really.

Did you people even READ the article before you posted?!

Target is NOT being built on the Magnificent Mile. It is going to be a small, temporary shop, for THREE DAYS. So find something else to cry about, geez.

And don't even get me started on the moron blaming Obama for this....

Target on the Mag Mile, but no Wal-Mart anywhere in Chicago? I guess Wal-Mart doesn't know who to bribe.

I guess you're not familiar with Chicago's big box ordinance where the city council dictated to big box owners what they must pay their employees in salary and benefits. Target's location probably doesn't full under that ordinance.

Do you want to kick out the Walgreens that's been on that section of the mag mile for the last hundred years?

I can't wait for the Sears on State St to go out of business. That would be a great location for Target to serve all of the Loop employees and students.

Yikes!!!!! Macy's has really gone to hell. Who wants to pay $250.00 for a Ralphie sweater. When you can buy one at a local Marshall's for more than 3/4's the cost and is just as good.

Garrett's was nasty stuff. the tourists loved it though. Target is one more example of the suburbanization of the once MAGNIFICENT Mile, much like the sad state of what one sees in Times Square today.

The Big Box Ordinance has nothing to do with this situation because it never went into effect. Daley vetoed the ordinance in Sept. 06 and the city council lacked the votes to override his veto.
