Trader Joe’s is coming to the South Side. The national grocery chain and the University of Chicago’s Commercial Real Estate Operations (CREO) group have inked an agreement to open in the Hyde Park Shopping Center, with a fall opening targeted for the chain’s sixth Chicago store.
“We recognize the importance of a grocery store in this location to the community, and we carefully selected Trader Joe’s based on a number of factors, including community input and timeline to opening,” said Angie Marks, associate VP of real estate operations at the university. “We look forward to working with Trader Joe’s to open its doors to the community later this year.”
Trader Joe’s will occupy a portion of the space formerly leased to Treasure Island Foods, which closed when the chain shut down last October. The CREO group continues to market the remaining square footage for complementary retail uses.
