Chicago apparently can't have enough discount retailers clamoring for our shopping dollars. The latest entry on the field is Kohl's Department Store, which will be opening its first Chicago location along the Elston corridor on a site that was formerly a DuPont Chemical Co. paint factory. Kohl's will be joined by a new Best Buy store. Because, you know, you can never have enough Best Buys.
