UPTOWN — Comcast will open an Xfinity store in the retail portion of the Eight Eleven Uptown development at Montrose and Clarendon avenues.
The cable and internet giant will open the new store at 4407 N. Clarendon early in 2020, Comcast said in a news release. It will be the sixth Xfinity store in Chicago as Comcast grows its retail presence in the city.
Comcast will occupy space in the standalone retail building that was constructed as part of Eight Eleven Uptown, the 381-unit apartment building at 811 W. Agatite Ave. The retail building sits across the street from the apartment tower.
It is unclear if Comcast will lease the entire 6,000-square-foot retail building that was originally slated to house two storefronts.
The new store will allow Comcast customers to get help with their services as well as browse Xfinity products, including its mobile phone service and home security platform, the company said.
“I’m pleased to welcome the Xfinity Store to Uptown,” Ald. James Cappleman (46th) said in a statement. “Uptown is a vibrant and diverse community, and the Xfinity Store will provide much needed services to area residents.”
Built by local firms JDL Development and Harlem Irving Companies, Eight Eleven Uptown’s main building was slated to include a 30,000-square-foot Treasure Island on the ground floor of the apartment tower, the developers previously announced. Treasure Island has since shuttered all of its locations, and a replacement tenant does not appear to have been announced.
The Xfinity store will be open from 10 am. to 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
