Evanston officials have scheduled what they're calling "a significant announcement" regarding economic development for Friday afternoon at 1 p.m.
The venue they've chosen for the announcement is the former Blockbuster video store at 1211 Chicago Ave.
Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl and Alderman Melissa Wynne, whose 3rd Ward includes the Blockbuster site, are scheduled to attend.
No word yet on what the announcement involves. Update 2/17/11: It's Trader Joe's. See the new story.
