Oprah Winfrey will open a store near her television studio

Oprah Winfrey has a talk show, a book club and a magazine - and now she is opening a store.

The store will be located across the corner from Chicago's Harpo Studios, where Winfrey's talk show is taped, a spokeswoman for Harpo Productions Inc. said Wednesday.

Construction already is under way on the one-story, 4,500-square-foot (418-square-meter) store, the spokeswoman said.

No potential opening date or details on what the store is expected to sell were released.

But Winfrey's Web site does have a boutique where viewers can buy merchandise such as a beach tote with "O" logo trim for $26 (euro19), a $10 (euro7) coffee mug with "The Oprah Winfrey Show" written on the side, or a $24 (euro18) basket made in South Africa.

Harpo Studios is located about a mile (1.6 kilometers) west of Chicago's downtown. It has been credited with helping revitalize the neighborhood known as the West Loop, a former warehouse district now full of galleries, restaurants and apartments.
