A Wal-Mart no bigger than your typical 7-Eleven?

It's headed to the Chatham neighborhood, according to Crain's.

Ald. Howard Brookins confirmed that the company's urban Wal-Mart Express store will occupy a 10,000-square-foot building at 83rd Street and Stewart Avenue.

Crain's reports that the store will carry "convenience-minded grocery items" and will be two blocks northeast of a supercenter that was approved last summer.

The express store will be the first for Wal-Mart, a concept the company announced last month.
