Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

This is a great addition to companies in our area; glad to see it! Not only is Ferrara a greatRead More company, but they had a super factory store in their prior location. HOPE THEY ALSO HAVE ONE IN BOLINGBROOK.
Resurrected April 17, 2014 at 03:57 pm
Now Bolingbrook will have a lot of sourpusses!! Lol
Eric Norris April 20, 2014 at 09:33 am
Another reason to love Bolingbrook even more. I am beginning to think relocating to Thousand OaksRead More was a bad idea. Love the 60440!

I personally love the Promenade. The restaurants are really good. If they happen to be too darnedRead More expensive that it is not worth it to somebody, then Denny's or Ihop is just down the road. And yes, stores have gone under, but stores have also been added. Just Ducky closed, The Beer Market moved in. Circuit City closed, Binny's moved in, etc. Really looking forward to the Farmers Market and Thursday night concerts again this summer.
Resurrected April 15, 2014 at 09:57 pm
The Promenade still can't top Downtown Naperville and the beautiful river walk!

Since this "new" restaurant is owned by the same guy that owned the "Cattleman'sRead More Steak House", I'm wondering just how long THIS place will stay open! He bled his former business here dry by funneling all the profits to his Downers Grove store! Cattleman's had great food and service but was done in by this owner's greed and bad business practices!
Manny April 7, 2014 at 07:05 am
Cattleman's did have great food; we were surprised when we stopped by one evening and found theRead More restaurant closed. Hopefully Casa Margarita will have equally great food and service and doesn't suffer the same fate as Cattleman's.

Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.

Question Lenny Kravitz; Did you get your $200. back?

Who cares what a bunch of reddit commenters have to say about it? What did potential EMPLOYERSRead More have to say about her idea?
Vicki Ivancevic March 27, 2014 at 09:17 pm
I would also consider J.Jill and Coldwater Creek to be in that tier as well. I know we are neverRead More going to get a Nordstrom or the like but it is better than Target, Wal-Mart or Kolhs.
Linda Rogers March 28, 2014 at 06:26 pm
Another higher end store, Janie and Jack.

If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!

wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!

Is Erica Ekstrom leaving VVSD or is she taking a different position? She is currently the DirectorRead More of Student Services. Or are we creating a new position in addition to this and the one that Carie Johnstone holds?
chris March 19, 2014 at 04:13 pm
Nicole Egizio, Student Services Administrator- is what it says on the RHS webpage - Do we reallyRead More need 2 people doing the same job at 2 different buildings- one at the ad center and 1 at the school-- Robin Vannoy is the same at BHS--according to BHS webpage. NO wonder the district is "broke" they have too many people doing the same job and NOT interacting with the students--isn't that more important??!!
