New to Beverly - and everyblock

Hey all, I'm new to beverly - and the beverly everyblock. Let's talk about something other than meijers, menards, and mean employees. What's your favorite thing about the area?

Could be somewhere to eat, a park, a house, a feeling, or even a grocery store :)

  • Paul Active resident

    Michael Sphar nailed it!

  • Welcome! I would also suggest Olivia's garden on Western if you garden and Dicola's next door for fresh and cooked seafood.

Bethany Union Church’s fall calendar is just starting and from the looks of it will be very busy and quite exciting! If you’re looking for a faith family, there couldn’t be a better time to come and see. At Worship, on Sunday, September 14th, 10:30 am, Rev Dr. Lawrence Michael Cameron, Pastor, and the Bethany Union Family are welcoming the Choir back from their summer sabbatical and welcoming New Members into the family. They are celebrating the event with a reception immediately following the service.

On the following Sunday, September 21st, there are more “beginnings”! Bethany Union will celebrate National Back to Church Sunday and International Peace Sunday. Pastor Cameron will also begin a 31 week adventure with The Story, combining weekly messages and small group sessions in a chronological journey through the Bible – an in depth exploration of God’s Story and Our Story and how they intertwine.

Please join us each and every Sunday morning for Worship and Fellowship, beginning at 10:30 am. For more information call the Bethany Union Office at

Re: the Meijer and Menards on Western.

I do not understand why so many opposed these stores. I think they are both great. The people that work in Meijers are so very nice and willing to help all the time. It is kept clean and the prices are good. It does affect the Beverly area in a good way.

  • Cindy Many year resident of Mt. Greenwood

    I wish the city would make the area along 95th street going east from Western as attractive and profitable as the Meiers area.

  • And all down Western where there are empty business. Yes it sure would be nice.

Meijers

I find it very hard to believe that all the employees you encountered at Meijers were very rude. I go there at least 3 times a week with a friend and never once have they been anything but kind, so much so that I even asked to talk to a Manager and tell him that. They may have been a bit slow at the beginning, but the pace has picked up. Some learning needed to be done and it has....

I find it very hard to believe that all the employees you encountered at Meijers were very rude. I go there at least 3 times a week with a friend and never once have they been anything but kind, so much so that I even asked to talk to a Manager and tell him that. They may have been a bit slow at the beginning, but the pace has picked up. Some learning needed to be done and it has. Not one time were they rude when I heard people complain that the line was too slow, just the opposite. The said they were sorry to each and ever customer in line. I think the anger towards this store was fueled by people that did not want the golf course torn down and there would not have been an issue with them if they had gone anywhere else. It is a shame some people can't get over themselves and give these hard workers a chance. Go to Marianos if that is your thing. I will give them a try also, but I won't label them good or bad because I think I am better than someone else. (I would bet you live in North Beverly and that is the problem, you didn't get your way.)

  • What exactly is your point? If you like to shop at a store, do it. If you don't, don't.
    What possible difference does it make if someone chooses to not shop at a place you like, for whatever reason?

    If anything, that means more selection and shorter lines for you.

  • My point was I agreed with you what is your point?

Evergreen Plaza Developer

To my Beverly friends and neighbors, I just read in The Beverly-Mt. Greenwood Patch where an announcement for the developer of the Evergreen Plaza is forthcoming. It needs to be said that these large regionally focused developments in Evergreen Park directly impact the Beverly, Mt. Greenwood and Morgan Park communities and cross those invisible lines that separate City or Village limits. After my significant personal investment of time and effort into minimizing the negative effects of the Meijer & Menards “regional center mall”, I wouldn’t be able to look at myself in the mirror if I didn’t publicly say that I hope our representatives, both elected and neighborhood associations, have been able to proactively participate in the plans for this "regional mall".

One major difference between the two large developments along Western Avenue is that one is building on already built upon commercial space, and the other was built upon open green space. Let it be known that I believe the Evergreen Plaza should be redeveloped, but I believe that we (Chicago & Evergreen Park) deserve a development that is architecturally significant, environmentally considerate, pedestrian/bicycle friendly and neighborhood/village centric. The question is, will this be another "You're too late to make suggestions, it's a done deal” , or, will the developers work with the surrounding communities in a cooperative effort to help us to help them? The impact that they make, good or bad, is the real answer that is forthcoming
