Crest Lighting Closes Doors in Lisle

Remaining inventory will likely be sold at auction.

The lights are still up, but the doors to (also known as Evergreen Oak Electric), 1600 Ogden Ave., recently closed.

They will continue operations through their New Lenox store, at 1918 Ferro Dr., New Lenox.

Employees at the New Lenox location said the Ogden Avenue store held a storewide sale in the weeks prior to its closing. Some inventory was moved to New Lenox, though the majority that is left will likely be sold to a liquidator for public auction at a later date, one employee said.

The chain store opened the Lisle location in 1982.



Tell us in the comments: what stores or amenities would you like to see on Ogden Avenue?

Word is they are opening a new store in Naperville.

Can the Village at least cut there grass until the building is sold? It makes the Ogden strip look bad with the weeds growing at that location.

The Village of Lisle has a "Vacant Building Ordinance" that covers exactly what you are asking, Eric. Problem is, that the Village doesn't enforce it. Likely the Village would be accused of discrimination if they took action on Crest when they waited about 18 months to get a vacant building registration (without payment) from the owners of the vacant property formerly known as the Unisys property and currently the subject of hearings for UTI. Village did not enforce the vacant building ordinance on the property at 2611 Corporate West for years and now the village wants to give that same owner $8 Million of property tax to tear it down. http://www.villageoflisle.org/home/index.asp?page=554
