Marshalls will open later this year at the former site of Babies R' Us in Shorewood.
Village Economic Development Director Kelley Chrisse told trustees the discount department store will begin renovations at the location in the Shorewood Crossing plaza at Route 59 and Black Road.
Like parent company Toys R' Us, Babies R' Us shut down retail operations in 2018.
Marshalls will occupy 25,000 square feet of the building, leaving about 6,000 square feet next to Staples office supplies vacant for other development, Chrisse said.
Marshalls is the country's second largest off-price family apparel and home fashion retailer, behind only sister company, TJ Maxx.
The Massachusetts company was founded in 1956 and operates over 1,100 stores nationwide.
Shorewood trustees said they were glad the space will be occupied and waived restrictions on temporary signage while renovations are underway.
Banners covering a total area of 250 square feet will be installed on the building to announce when Marshalls is "Coming Soon" and "Now Open."
