Google Reportedly Opening Chicago Retail Store
According to reports, Google is poised to open a permanent retail space in Chicago. The plans — seen by The Chicago Tribune – are for a space spanning 14,000-square-foot across a number of interconnected brick buildings several blocks south of Google’s current Midwest headquarters.
If the store goes ahead, it would be Google’s first permanent retail location and would stock the company’s hardware products including the Google Pixel and Google Home. Previously, Google had planned to open a 5,000-square-foot space in New York, but these plans were abandoned and the space was leased out.
