CHICAGO - Inland Real Estate Corp. said it signed a lease with Old Time Pottery to open an approximately 78,000 square foot store at the Mosaic Crossing shopping center in West Chicago.

   The new store fills the space formerly occupied by a grocery store. It will be the retailer’s third location in Chicagoland and is expected to open in summer 2013.
   “We believe Mosaic Crossing will provide an excellent home for Old Time Pottery’s newest location in the Midwest,” said Inland Vice President Jeff Howard says in a release. “Offering quality housewares, home decor and seasonal decorations in a low-price warehouse concept, Old Time Pottery is a good match with the other retailers in the center and is well located in the trade area.”
   Old Time Pottery is leasing 100% of Inland Real Estate’s stake in Mosaic Crossing, located at the corner of Route 59 and Route 64. Additional tenants at the center, such as Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree, lease space that is separately owned
