How long has New Deluxe Bakery been closed? Has anyone heard of the new business taking the location of N.D.B.(Dough Bros)?

Does anyone know why N.D.B. had closed? I thought the were doing well.

Orland Bakery people are opening donut shop. I hope they do well. Our village needs businesses other than tattoo shops and saloons to thrive. It is a risk to open a storefront on a limited access street like Ridgeland (because of the heavy train traffic). So it is up to the villagers of Ridge and Worth to support this business. We don't need empty storefronts in our village. Best of Luck to these guys

For over 30 years, the mayor and his lackeys have whined about the trains but they don't ever DO anything about the business community. Chicago Ridge is not the only town with trains crossing through. It is not the community responsibility to support businesses. IT Is the Village Board's job to create a good business climate. Gene stopped working since the Commons. And since Grove has been elected Chicago Ridge has been anti Business.The right businesses WILL work out, but they would never come here. There is no plan to invite businesses. The Donut Shop will do well if they serve the community. Only a Village Board lackey would think that the community needed to serve the businesses.

Soooo.....what would be a good plan that invites businesses, short of tax incentives?

The village must have integrity, character, and be true to the promises it makes. Reputation goes a long way, and it also goes both ways. A community with a good reputation that is known for being true to the promises it makes and being pro-development has a head start in the recruitment of retail businesses. A Village with a bad reputation in the development world has a tough time convincing anybody to invest. Siegel had a great reputation. Grove ruined it. The rest stood by.

This probably goes along with the business right next to the New Deluxe Bakery, which is now Stretchinos Pizza. How many business's are going into this position before we have a sucessful business. Strechinos Pizza is owned by a Oak Lawn resident.

I get the feeling from watching this that your plan is to badger someone else to do the work for you, or to do the work for you to criticize. If you take away financial incentives, as your leading question seems to want to do, then the Village has a much weaker ability to help. Sometimes the "market" needs to be led to location, although if you have ever stood in line at our Butcher Shop you would know no one needs to be led there and on Mondays there is a traffic jam at the pizza take out near the village hall so you see that your idea that business will always fail because of trains is faulty and full of holes. Leadership and Promotion sells both the image and promise of any business district to shoppers, investors, new businesses, and visitors. With an effective promotion strategy, a business districtís positive image is promoted through retail promotions, special events, and marketing campaigns implemented by the local program. This is hard work. The Village leaders are not used to hard work. Economic restructuring improves the commercial district economy. By helping existing businesses expand and recruiting new business that respond to todayís market, solid programs help convert unused space into productive properties and cultivate local and regional entrepreneurship.

This might as well be an excuse written by the Mayor himself. O woe is us. If it wasn't for the trains. 100 years to figure it out is a long time guy. Maybe trying something that doesn't work is much better...like what has been going on. It is also an excuse for doing nothing.

I agree Jack and Pats has been there since I can remember. The butcher shop seems to have done well all of these years.(I could only speculate due to the fact the store is still standing). The butcher shop puts out a good product as well as their good service. The local businesses will need to cater to the local people as well to produce a good product that is affordable while helping serve the community by helping out non for profit organizations with their needs...With their help..The newer businesses will get returned business from the locals as well as word of mouth business from the locals unto the surrounding comunities within the area. We, as a village needs these new businesses to thrive and keep the buildings ocupied, so that the community does not turn into an area that you would see in the inner city.

We do not need another Pizza place, Bar or Taco place. We have them and they are struggling.
I miss the Bakery.

I wish Jack & Pats would get a tax break to remodel and Grow & include more items. Liquor and Catering.
Catering to the American Legion which could also remodel and Grow.

We need another option other than FairPlay.
It is just too busy. We need another option for expensive Weddings, Parties, etc.

The North end has to get together with the South end of the strip mall and plan new business for all!
