The new alcohol-serving Target in Streeterville is all set to open next week, and the first glimpse of the store is impressive.
The store, located at 401 E. Illinois St., the former location of Fox and Obel, will be the Minnesota-based retailer's first location to serve alcohol. It is expected to open Oct. 11.
A spokesperson for Target confirmed last month that the Streeterville store sought a liquor license but declined to elaborate on plans for the bar area.
The store was originally slated to open as a TargetExpress, which is a smaller, urban-focused version of the regular Target store. Although the company later announced that all CityTarget and TargetExpress stores would be renamed "Target" and rebranded with the company's logo, the Streeterville location appears to have kept the small, urban theme.
