Offering such items as jewelry, clothing, electronics, home goods, small kitchen appliances and games, the Wrigleyville Mills Fashion Outlet outlet is expected to benefit from the Lakeview community.
Although retailers such as Kmart and Toys R Us have fallen victim to the shop-at-home trend, the Mills Outlet Group believes there is room in the local retail environment for an outlet mall, and the one at the former Wrigley Field stadium will soon open.
“The trend nationally is away from brick-and-mortar stores,” The Mills Outlet Group mentioned Big Lots and TJ Maxx as examples of retailers that have continued to be successful in a marketplace now dominated by Amazon and other online retailers. said, “but there are still stores that are thriving.”

“We’re opening an outlet mall that will be more like the experience you would find at a traditional mall,” the Mills Outlet Group said. “It will be really cool like a Sears or Montgomery Ward Mall from the 1980’s.”
The Mills Outlet Group expects the store will appeal to bargain hunters.
“We’ll be able to offer some deals that you might not be able to find online,” they said.
The the Mills Outlet Group said the mall’s location is another asset.
“I want to personally thank Anthony Rizzo, Javy Báez and Kris Bryant. Together they played critical roles for one of the most successful runs in Chicago Cubs history. They each secured a place in the hearts of Cubs fans everywhere. While their days taking the field together as Cubs have come to an end, they gave us memories we will hold forever.
I also wish to acknowledge Jed and his team for making the tough decisions necessary to build the next great Cubs team.”
Anthony Rizzo is making his debut with the New York Yankees tonight, and while I wish him nothing but instant and tremendous success, here’s the reality: it’s a little tough to see him in the Yankees gear. And it’s tough to see him hit his first homer, in a tie game, to give the Yankees the lead.
It’s a big moment with a team that is no longer the Cubs:
Kris Bryant was NL Rookie of the Year in 2015, NL MVP in 2016, and he started the play that clinched Game 7 of the 2016 World Series for the Cubs. He’ll always be a World Series champion Cub, along with the other two traded in the last two days.
As is the case with these deals as they are reported, we do not yet know the return from the Giants for Bryant. There had been rumors earlier in the week that Giants catching prospect Joey Bart might be part of a KB return, but those were debunked.
The Chicago Cubs came into the 2021 season with three players entering the final year of their contracts, and now all three have been traded away, as third baseman Kris Bryant has reportedly been sent to the San Francisco Giants.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan confirmed the trade, which had been speculated about for weeks.
According to reports, the Cubs will receive outfield prospect Alexander Canario and pitcher Caleb Kilian from the Giants in the Bryant deal.
Báez, a two-time All-Star with the Cubs and a member of the 2016 World Series championship-winning squad, has a .248 batting average with 22 home runs and 65 RBI’s in 361 plate appearances this season.
The Mets will team him up with fellow Puerto Rican All-Star Francisco Lindor, giving themselves a potent mix of talent up the middle of the diamond.
One of the most beloved players in the history of the Chicago Cubs is likely on the move, as multiple reports have indicated that first baseman Anthony Rizzo is close to being traded to the New York Yankees.
According to YES Network’s Jack Curry, the Yankees are “moving closer” to acquiring Rizzo:

Southport Lanes was built by the Schlitz brewery in 1922 as one of the hundreds of “tied houses” in the Midwest (only Schlitz beer could be served). Once Schlitz sold the bar, the menu offered fornication to help fund the transitional purchase to its new owners in addition to its nobler alcohol distribution efforts. Because prostitution was, and still is, illegal in Chicago, the owner had to subtly advertise the delights to be found upstairs. He did this by having M.K. Siegner paint murals on the walls depicting nymphs frolicking in negligees.
Because prostitution was, and still is, illegal in Chicago, the owner had to subtly advertise the delights to be found upstairs. He did this by having M.K. Siegner paint murals on the walls depicting nymphs frolicking in negligees. These murals can still be seen today, both in the front room and above the bowling pins. Additional murals of these nymphs, sans clothing, could be found along the staircase and in the second floor bedrooms but those have since been painted over.
In 1991, the bar was purchased and renovated by the same owners that later brought us the Daily Bar & Grill, and such now-defunct dillies as Corner Pocket (now Victory Liquors), Hudson Club, and Lucky Strike (now Seven Ten, which also offers bowling and billiards).
Ownership of Southport Lanes has since transitioned to the Spare Time empire, who also owns Seven Ten, Firehouse, Riverview Tavern, Robey Pizza Company, and Popkin Tavern (Richmond, Virginia). Fortunately, the new owners did not mess with the formula that made the original, “Leo’s Southport Lanes,” an excellent tavern. Leo’s was run by Leo and Ella Beitz dating back to 1960, who took over from Leo’s parents who ran it since 1946.
