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.

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
