Wal-Mart Plans West Loop Grocery Store
Store would be located in Presidential Towers
A 30,000-foot space at 2840 N. Broadway could soon house a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, an urban-oriented retail layout that's about a third the size of the standard supercenter.

Wal-Mart in the West Loop?
That unlikely scenario appears to be coming to fruition after the giant retailer signed a lease to open a 26,491 square foot store in Presidential Towers at 555 W. Madison St., according to Chicago Journal.
Wal-Mart spokesman Steve Restivo told the Journal that the store will be a grocery focused "Neighborhood Market," with "meat and a bakery, a deli and a full-service pharmacy."
Ald. Bob Fioretti has an upcoming meeting scheduled with Wal-Mart, according to the report.
