Looking for a locksmith

Greetings, neighbors-

I'm looking for a locksmith to install two door closers and rekeying of door locks for our building.

Please recommend a professional and reasonable locksmith?. Thank you

    Rather than an expensive locksmith, how about a great handyman? Our family business is AIK Restoration & Repair. Contact us at aikrandr@yahoo.com or 312-952-5953. http://www.yelp.com/biz/aik-restoration-and-repair-chicago?sort_by=rating_desc

  • Janet Baker ISON over France (squint!)

    We got courteous and gratuitous advice and an estimate from Ron Caldwell at Goldy Locks in Tinley Park. We went with our usual handyman, though, for the installation of latch guards, and I wish we hadn't, because the doors didn't work right afterwards. Anyway, Ron even gave us advice for fixing them after the fact. Will use a pro next time, doors are quirky! Goldy Locks seems very professional.

Fireworks?

What the heck are all these fireworks going off for? I've been hearing them since about 7.

  • I think this weekend was Puerto Rican pride and before that was the Stanley cup. The fireworks will progressively get worse up until the 4th. They'll blow off their stash then and you won't hear as many for the rest of the summer. We've become best friends with the our a/c and a sound machine.

  • Wow, dissing fireworks....It was Puerto Rican pride over the weekend and wasn't it Mexican flag day last week? I forgot about the Hawks....

    Frankly, the 4th of July is only 12 days away.

Kmart Closing

For anyone interested..........

It was announced to all the employees tonight that the Kmart store at Cicero & Elston will be closing for good in 60 days and they will all loose their jobs.

Another example of corporate mismanagement costing local jobs!

  • Anyone know what sales they're having?

  • BellaV 1st time Homeowner in Jefferson Park since 2012

    Ooohhh! Good question, Neighborly2! I didn't even think about that! I'd better start saving my nickels and dimes now, because I'll go nuts at a Kmart clearance sale! LOL :)

Are you in need of an experienced sitter or summer nanny?

I am looking for employment as a sitter or a nanny for the 2015 summer starting June 23 and ending September 2. I have multiple years of experience working with children ranging from newborns to 15 year olds with and without mental/medical conditions. I will love to create a curriculum for your child and love to introduce him/her to outside and other activities while keeping them safe and secure. Email me if you are interested. We can then meet and chat in person.

    He's probably the same guy going around resurfacing driveways with used motor oil. You know the story, They ring your door saying " we were in the area and we thought we would ask while we are here. You have to decide now" The do the job, get paid and they're gone and you have a nice shiny driveway.

  • Perhaps I don't want (or cannot) take my bike on the L or the metra but want to quickly get from my place at Six Corners to the Blue Line or Grayland or wherever. Divvy bikes provide me with a way to take a short, quick trip without the hassle...

    Perhaps I don't want (or cannot) take my bike on the L or the metra but want to quickly get from my place at Six Corners to the Blue Line or Grayland or wherever. Divvy bikes provide me with a way to take a short, quick trip without the hassle of dealing with my bike once I get where I'm going.

    I also have an expensive bike and then my "city bike" that I could care less about if it were to get stolen. My "city bike" is currently in need of maintenance so Divvy is another option for me to take short rides around the neighborhood without worrying about my expensive bike getting stolen.

    There are plenty of ways to use these bikes. They've been successful in other neighborhoods.
