The company is still seeking a buyer for the Ogden Avenue storefront.
A liquidation auction for the remaining inventory in Crest Lighting's former Lisle store is scheduled for May, according to a rep for the lighting company. Roughly 300 pieces from the store at 1600 Ogden Ave. were transferred to the company's New Lenox storefront, said Crest Lighting employee Amy Fimbianti. A liquidating company will auction the remaining fixtures, scheduled for May 19 at 9 a.m. at the store. Fimbianti stressed the auction isn't like a typical public estate sale; she said they expect retail deailers and other "serious buyers" who were invited by the liquidators. Crest Lighting remains in ownership of the building, and are still looking for an interested buyer. Fimbianti added that the company's current Naperville store is …

After briefly operating in Lemont, this Lisle family found the perfect storefront for their natural pet food store on a drive through town.

While brands aren’t necessarily formulated toward specific breeds, they are tailored to varying activity levels. Thornton swears by holistic methods for his own brood of dogs, cats, birds, and bearded dragon (his family also occasionally fosters rescued …

Monday, April 23, 2012
Chicago Reader recently compiled a handy list of restaurants throughout the suburbs they believe Chicago residents would consider worthy of the commute. Fabulous Noodles, 4663 Old Tavern Rd., was one of 36 restaurants recognized. "The chef at Taiwanese-owned Fabulous Noodles prepares amazingly good renditions of Cantonese classics...," writes Reader restaurant critic Mike Sula. "Yet he also has the chops to switch gears and deliver a rock-solid version of northern-style vegetarian chicken (marinated tofu skin rolled and filled with bamboo shoots and shiitakes) or Hong Kong-style wonton noodle soup..." Read their full list of recommendations for the western suburbs, and the other Fabulous Noodles dishes they praised. Review Fabulous …
