Forman Mills Clothing Factory Warehouse will open its first store in Chicago tomorrow in a former Goldblatt’s Department Store site at 1450 N. Cicero Ave.
The 55,000-square-foot store will sell marked-down designer clothes as well as authorized apparel from major league and collegiate sports teams. More than 200 jobs are expected to be created.
The discount chain, with its yellow facades, first entered the region last July, with a store in south suburban Lansing.
The Philadelphia area-based retailer, which began in 1977 as a flea-market operator, now has more than 30 stores.
