Walmart is eyeing a vacant supermarket building in the Chicago area for what could become a pickup-only grocery store, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The Lincolnwood Plan Commission approved Walmart's request to move into the space at a Sept. 12 meeting. Walmart had sought approval for a special use for hours of operation, parking, signage and parking lot landscaping. The company is planning a spring 2019 opening.
The proposed pickup spot gives customers "yet another location close to where they live or close to where they work where they can go online, order their groceries and pick it up at this location. They don't have to get out of their car,' Walmart spokesperson Ann Hatfield said, according to the Tribune.
The former Dominick's location closed in 2013 when the chain shut down its Chicago-area stores.
