Dick's Sporting Goods Opens as the First Tenant at The Maxwell

Looks like the first tenant of The Maxwell shopping center, just north of Roosevelt, is opening it's doors (via Wall Street Journal):
DICK'S Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS), the largest U.S. based full-line omni-channel sporting goods retailer, invites the city of Chicago to their three-day grand opening. The celebration runs Friday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15 at the new location at The Maxwell (1100 S. Canal Street). Special extended hours will be in effect all weekend. The store opens at 8:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 9:00 a.m. Sunday.
They will be running a bunch of promotions, but if you're a Bears fan you might like this one the most:
On Sunday, Chicago Bears player Brandon Marshall will make an in-store appearance from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.**
It seems like it's the proper time to say this, but the Roosevelt Shopping Corridor appears to be in full swing.  Yes, it's heavy on the national big box chains, but it's still a nice resource to have in the neighborhood if you ask us.

Upon request from a reader, we're instituting a new poll on the right hand side of site (it's been awhile).  Which shopping complex will have 100% occupancy first - The Maxwell or Roosevelt Collection.

(Hat tip:  VG!)
