After 56 years, Lincolnshire finally has its grocery store

After years of waiting, Lincolnshire-area residents finally got the chance Wednesday morning to shop in a hometown grocery store.
Fresh Market, the first grocery store in Lincolnshire's 56-year history, opened its doors to the public Wednesday with special promotions and giveaways for its first customers.
The store, at 475 Milwaukee Avenue, is the realization of a long-term effort by Lincolnshire officials to bring a grocer to the community. Prior to Wednesday, village residents would have to travel to supermarkets in nearby Vernon Hills, Buffalo Grove or Lake Forest to do their grocery shopping.
The store is on a 7-acre site once partially owned by the village on the northeast corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Half Day Road.
Village officials now are weighing an Elmhurst-based developer's offer to purchase adjoining land for a separate development. DK Mallon has offered to buy more than 7 acres of commercially zoned land on the north and south sides of the store. Company representatives are expected to appear before village officials next week to discuss their plans for the site.
