During a special promotion for an advance screening of the movie Man of Steel, Walmart listed the closest store location for residents of 60477 in the field at 191st Street and Harlem Avenue. Mayor Ed Zabrocki says Walmart has been interested party in the property just south of Interstate 80 and the Brookside Marketplace shopping center but no deal with anyone is set.
Walmart called it SuperCenter 4698. In May, Walmart offered customers a chance to pick up tickets at their local store for a special June screening of the Superman movie. A spokeswoman at Walmart said it was a glitch, and the Harlem-and-191st location should not have been listed on the promotion page. On Tinley Park Patch
