Michael Jordan store to open in Chicago

CHICAGO -- The new Michael Jordan brand Nike store doesn't open in Chicago until Saturday, but Michael Jordan tweeted out a first look inside.

Jordan tweeted "No place like home. A look inside 32 South State, a retail experience with @footaction."

The store will sell merchandise with the trademarked Michael Jordan "Jumpman" silhouette, including basketball, training, sportswear and kids' products. The brand manager said the store will also have items chosen "specifically by Michael," according to the Associated Press.

In anticipation of the Saturday opening, people have been lined up outside the store for days.

Nike Chief Executive Mark Parker says the UNC alumnus' popularity opens up a "world of opportunity" for the company.

Nike also plans stores in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto featuring the former Chicago Bulls star.
