Omega's hard times... is a sign of the economy. Nominal income for all restauranteurs these days make them examine how much they make vs what kind of quality of life they lead. After all ownership of any business is not a full time job it is indentured servitude.
Downers Grove should consider how to partner with such successful long term corner stone businesses in these obvious times of need.

Ask yourself do you really have the money to eat out frequently anymore. The answer is for me is no! So there is no surprise here.

He gambled his life away. He and his son blew it. He ruined a good thing. A cash cow, but addicted to the wrong things. Move them out and get a different owner. Next he will burn the place down for insurance money (Greek Lightning)

Sounds just like what's happening at Ogden Lincoln. What was once a thriving business, is about to go under.

The dad and older brother had a good thing going and in the few years since the youngest son took over, he has gambled it all away on other loosing businesses. Ogden Auto Group is no longer. The only dealership left is Lincoln. The Chevy store's gone, North Shore Ford is gone, North Aurora Lincoln/Kia is gone as are both Lamborghini stores. The scooter business is gone as is the personal armored vehicle company (does the private citizen really need an armored vehicle?) Of course, he's always got organic ice cream and pizza and the small share of Ditka's.

Ogden Lincoln and Omega were icons on Ogden Ave but it looks like the end is near for both of them.
