LINCOLN PARK — Target, which replaced a Best Buy on Clark Street in Lincoln Park, is opening its doors to the public Wednesday.
The Minneapolis-based chain announced it would take over the storefront 2650 N. Clark St., just south of Diversey Parkway, in December.
The 31,000-square-foot store is one of 14 "flexible format stores" the chain plans to open in the next couple of years.
The store offers a pharmacy, a grocery section, Starbucks, Freshii, home products for "urban apartments" as well as the standard sections found in Target.
There will also be "curbside" service, which means customers with the curbside app can pick up online orders at the entrance of local Targets, the company said in a news release. The service is available at 10 Chicago locations as part of a test in certain markets, the company said.
Next door, construction crews are at work building the city's first Altschool, a technology-focused "micro-school," with ground-floor retail. Banana Republic is planning to lease about 6,000 square feet in the building, according to a Crain's report.
