This is **THE APEX** of breaking news

Word around the aldermanic block, and by that I mean the 40th Ward Alderman’s block, is that the abandoned K-Mart on Peterson is going to be turned into (drumroll, please………)


No further details as of yet; no dates, contents of store, promise of the Kool-Aid man being there like in the commercial. But I will keep you posted.

    No criticism implied; just curious! It is interesting how folks will welcome a target yet shun a Wal Mart. The power of branding in action I suppose!

    i don’t think it’s branding so much. wal-mart is evil. they’re bitches to their customers, their manufacturers, they destroy their surrounding communities, and they’re extra-huge bitches to their employees. target treats their employees better, pays them more, and donates moneys back into their communities.

    plus they make high design affordable for the masses, which is why i’m a big fan. :)
