In an interview with the Chicago Sun Times, Martha mentioned that the company is working on the concept of stand-alone Martha Stewart stores so that collectors and admirers of the Martha Stewart brand could find everything in one place: ''I long have dreamed about having free-standing Martha Stewart stores," Martha said, "and we can easily fill a store with all the products we make. I would love to have a store on Michigan Avenue [in Chicago] ... that would be great.''

Martha hastened to add that no specific locations had been set but that the company would likely begin to test the concept internationally. The first Martha Stewart Store was located in Japan in a mall in the fashionable Yurakucho district of Tokyo. It did not last, sadly, but the Martha Stewart line of merchandise is so rapidly expanding that a Martha Store just makes sense. It's something many fans have wanted for a very, very long time!
