    Walmart opened Illinois' first Neighborhood Market in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood last fall.

    If you live in Chicago, Walmart could soon be coming to your neighborhood.

    The Arkansas-based retailer plans to open Neighborhood Market stores in Back of the Yards and Little Village next year, according to Crain's Chicago Business. They will be located four miles apart, at West 47th and Bishop and 2551 W. Cermak Road.

    Both locations will cost about $5 million to build and will employ about 100 people, according to Crain's. They are both smaller versions of the company's supercenters.

    Walmart also plans to open Neighborhood Market stores in Lakeview and Englewood, along with a supercenter in Pullman next year.
