Is Google Opening a Retail Store in Chicago?

Google may be attempting to open brick-and-mortar location, again. The store is said to be two-floors in Chicago’s Fulton Market.

The tech company is continuing to work on a lease that will be almost 14,000 square feet on several connected two-story buildings, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Google’s current Midwest office location will be south of the new retail space.

As its competitors such as Apple and Microsoft have been successful in retail, Google will look to do the same with it’s diverse lineup of products including Pixel phones, Chromebooks, tablets, thermostats, Google Home, etc.

The company attempted a retail location in the SoHo district in New York. It was a 5,000 square foot location, which was shutdown and the renovated was leased out instead.

The retail store will be between 845 and 853 W. Randolph St., the tribune stated.
