New Walmart Will Address Lack of Grocery Stores In Auburn Gresham

The general contractor for the new store is UJAMAA Construction Inc., which until 2010, was based in Auburn Gresham at 400 W. 76th St. The South Side company has built six Walmart stores in Chicago including the Chatham store.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

That new grocery store is a 42,942-square-foot Walmart Neighborhood Market store at the corner of 76th Street and Ashland Avenue.

Wolfe said Walmart has hired more than 2,200 Chicago residents over the last several years and plans to hire more. One block away from the Walmart site at 7627 S. Ashland Ave. is Aldi, a discount grocer Wolfe said is a great competitor but "we offer affordable prices."

The fight is not over, It has just begun.

The was a rally protesting the closing of Simeon's Auto and electrical shops. This can not take place. The buck stops at the mayors' feet and Ald. Brookins is again asleep at the switch. If we lose these shops the mayor and alderman will pay at the polls.

New charter school for at risk youths

I recently learned that Emmanuel Christian Church has entered into an agreement w/ CPS to open an alternative high school at 83 rd & Damen. No community engagement efforts just trying to slip in without notice. Smh!

  • You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it...

    You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it is a school for youth who are expelled from CPS and CPS approved alternative schools. It is a school that had to have armed security guards. Once we got on CPS and the archdiocese of Chicago they moved, Many of the churches that once had schools are looking for ways to generate revenue from the spaces since the school closed.

    Wow! This is very concerning. I will do just that. Thank you.

Protests to keep Simeon Career Academy auto and electrical shops open

There will be a rally Monday 6:00pm at Simeon Career Academy to protest the closings of the auto and electrical shops. I will also have petitions there to have signed and delivered to Ald. Brookins to demand that he prevent the closings. With the state of black young unemployment in this city we can not let this happen
