Oak Park's North Ave. Fresh Market closes

We're very sorry to see this business close, especially so soon after the Mobile/North Walgreens closing. But it turns out that the closing is due to the bankruptcy of the owner, rather than a problem with this particular store. That's somewhat comforting. Here's a link to the story:
http://elmwoodpark.suntimes.com/2014/07/11/north-avenue-fresh-market-closes/

  • It wasn't even bankruptcy they refuse to pay their mortgage and let it pile up to $206,000 they knew they were going to close at least they could have given their employees notices before hand instead of the day of closing.

Does anyone have a direct connection to representatives at Chicago public school district who can attend to this massive problem caused by unknowing contracted landscape workers? Since these "Volcano Mulch" method applications have been repeated over the last five years or more, correcting each individual tree involves not just removing shredded wood, but carefully locating Root flair and original soil line level while cutting away all incorrect fine root growth above it. As each one matures, they will become dangerous to the public since tight girdling root growth surrounding trunk will cause tree to fail by breaking away whole above ground portion at base in lite wind. Park district is also improperly overmulching remaining tree collection, along with their new replacements for 96,000 dead Ash. With so much increasing wood supply from acres of dead ash trees, overmulching of trees, Shrubs & Plants will only get worse. Especially since these applications of landscape mulch looks so sharp, particularly when done wrong.

  • The trees were cut down in Shabbona Park between Sayre and Newland just south of Roscoe. The trees were part of a grove across from the food truck parked from May until Nov. The trees removed were east of those remaining trees. They were healthy and just beginning to leaf. If you find out why they were removed, please post. Thank you for your advocacy.

  • OK zachary, I'll figure out what they were.
