Walmart Watch

Walmart is extending its 'Neighborhood Market' brand to new quarters of the city, confirming with The Tribune that it plans on opening stores in Little Village and Back of the Yards next year. A fraction of the superstore size associated with the retail giant, the new locations will measure 37,000 and 31,000 square feet, respectively. They'll also be food and pharmacy oriented— infinitely more useful to these underserved communities than a universe of cheap trinkets. Add these locations to the existing list of planned stores (a Pullman supercenter; Lakeview and Englewood neighborhood markets), and Chicago has a flood of bargains on its hands.
