Unwrapping the West Loop Wal-Mart

West Loop Wal-Mart

Our West Loop spy e-mailed last night with photos of the new Wal-Mart going in at Presidential Towers (555 West Madison Street).

The paper that’s obscured the views of the curious for the last few months has been taken down, and it’s possible to see inside.  While there is still some physical construction to be done, including installation of a revolving door (note the plywood in the photograph above), the aisles are supposedly all set up, there are pallets of what appears to be merchandise around.  There are even a few giant price signs to be seen, though they’re all set to “000.00.”

We’d originally been told that Wal-Mart hoped to open in August, and it sounds like that might still be possible.
