Google Halts Chicago Store Plans


Google could be putting the breaks on their physical stores as a new report states Google has ended its plans for a large Chicago store.

The store would have occupied a two-story retail location in the Fulton Market district of Chicago. The 14,000 square foot space would have been used to showcase products and services made by Google and partners.


After Googles refusal to sign a lease, the space is now being shown to other companies in the area. This doesn't mean Google is entirely giving up on their retail locations, but it could mean they are taking longer to develop than initially thought.

Google is currently operating several pop-up stores around the world allowing customers to see the latest and greatest Google technology. From the new Pixel Phones and tablets to the Google Assistant powered devices.
