Nike outlet opens in the Chatham neighborhood...

I saw this news on Channel 5 and also online at Channel 2.

If you don't already know and are too lazy to see on this blog, Chatham is a stable mostly black middle class neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. This Nike store is located in a shopping center that already contains Target, Radio Shack, Walgreen's, and a Game Stop. What's even better is that there is a locally owned neighborhood bank across the street too.

You know Nike wants to be a good corporate citizen and was said to be utilizing a local bank. This is no doubt a good thing for the community. And honestly there were rumors of Nike coming to the neighborhood for a while.

Of course, since young black men and women love some sneakers. It's often that I would see some youths wearing a pair of Air Jordans, it's great to know that Nike is not only going to be selling sneakers but bringing to the neighborhood 50 jobs and seeking to be a good corporate citizen. Welcome to the neighborhood Nike.
