Chicago's retail scene is about to get a major boost with a new Target store setting up shop in the city's historic Six Corners. The grand opening, scheduled for March 17, will see the 44,000 sq. ft. space go live, breathing new life into the old Sears building at 4728 West Irving Park Road. The northwest side has been craving for some retail therapy and Target is just the fix it's going to get.

The store, part of the "Six Corners Economic Development Master Plan," aims to revitalize a once-thriving shopping district. Looking to serve up a localized shopping experience, the new Target is all set to cater specifically to the Chicago community. With this store, becoming the retailer's 21st Chicago location, Target is the only new addition announced in Illinois, as noted by BNN Breaking.

It's not just about adding a new store, though. Target is decking out its racks with a new Diane von Furstenberg clothing and furniture line. According to NBC Chicago, this collaboration is set to bring the fashionista's signature styles to Target's patrons without breaking the bank. Scheduled to launch earlier this month, it's envisioned to inject some high-fashion at budget-friendly prices into the Chicago store.

On top of the new store and chic collaboration, Target is also revamping its 'up&up' brand. Customers eager for a varied selection of quality, yet affordable products, will find the line now peppered with new additions and improvements. Inadvertently, Target aims to reinforce its marketplace stronghold while adapting to consumer trends, as BNN Breaking reports. As March 17 nears, the Six Corners area anticipates the fusion of modern commerce with its own storied legacy, ushering a shopping renaissance for the neighborhood and beyond.
