from what i have heard, Berkots will take over Sentry and the thrift store and gut them both and then open up. I sure hope that is the case. It would be nice to have a NICE place to shop close to home without paying the exorbitant prices that Jewel charges.

Armpits are an essential part of the human race. Without armpits, we would have potentially immobile arms in sockets that wouldn't work as sockets. Perhaps we wouldn't even have arms, but enough talk about limbs in the Midlothian Forum.

Perhaps you are suggesting we need a stronger antiperspirant and deodorant to rid ourselves of the stench created by text being displayed in open public forums online such as what you just stuffed into the search engines?

147th and Cicero has always been a prime location as a business district, especially in terms of traffic. And yet you attempt to hold Midlothian accountable in public for multiple layers of government being unable to come to the table and come to terms that will address a variety of multi-jurisdictional issues with responsible and responsive mannerisms. Brilliant keyword deduction, but the core of Midlothian continues to grow more and more inclusive no matter how many people say we somehow suck in some category.

Infrequent customer that I was, perhaps you somehow managed to persuade them to leave town because you grew tired of my buying hundreds of dollars worth of textbooks from them and then actually reading them over the past 8 years...in between reading meeting minutes, agendas, municipal code books, newspapers, magazines and all of the other print I tend to consume when I am not writing, or whatever else I might be in the mood to do.

I am going to selfishly and severely miss them. I understand the value of the current agreement for all parties involved and I wish the new store great success. But it was always a great tickle to know that although I was paying pennies on the dollar for educational materials, the value of the materials contained on those pages was unquantifiable...all while my money was going towards a good charity that helps elevate people from sometimes those broke moments...after a natural disaster or losses from a house fire, but that was not the only motive of those who patronized the store.

Thank you St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store for your selfless contribution to the community! While the Daily Southtown may have had the marketing campaign suggesting "those up North just don't get it," there are many around the world that will never appreciate the role you chose to play in Midlothian all of these years...but we will never forget!

Good luck!

It is an amazing thing to see a THRIFT store close in an underserved community and open up in an affluent community.

Are times so bad that even the well-to-do are going to start shopping in thrift stores???

economic development to our area's such as Midlothian and other communities.
