Trader Joe's is moving into the old Blockbuster Space (after its demolished and the new building finished) on Chicago Ave. Slated to open spring 2013 at 1211 Chicago Ave. Evanston is of course excited about the expected half million dollars in taxes per year. This store is south of Greenwood and therefore is in South Evanston. Reading the articles you can see that Evanston paid two million so that TJ could have a parking lot. And the alley situation was remedied so as not to overburden neighbors with delivery traffic.
