"Hometown Happenings" - City of Warrenville


As I am writing this, the fate of the Ogden 6 Theatres in Naperville hangs in the balance. Most of us have probably been there at some time in the past, or perhaps you are a regular today. It resides in a mostly empty shopping center once dominated by a vibrant Kmart. A few other businesses remain, but the center hangs by a thread, and Naperville officials have been searching for a way to revitalize the site since the Kmart closed in 2013. Enter Costco.

Costco already has one Naperville presence, but has been actively looking for another, claiming that their current location is overcrowded, which hurts their business.
