View Comments ()



    South Loopers won't have to drive as far for their three-buck chuck.

    Popular specialty grocery store Trader Joe's will open a new location at 1147 S. Wabash Ave. sometime next year, Crain's reports.

    The store will occupy 14,700 square feet of space in the building that used to house a Sam's liquor superstore.

    It will be Trader Joe's fourth store in Chicago.
