Holy cow 5, it's been 45 minutes since you posted and your personal troll hasn't done anything to harass you yet. Either that person is starting to mature or it's nap time, one of the two.
Don't be jealous you might be next.

Yes they are closing. There are signs in the windows advising of the closing also 50 to 75% off things in the store.

Did you ever think that the home rule authorization did this? Do you even remember the city hall adding a gas tax? When it was mentioned this would hurt businesses and drive them out...well...your brilliant trustees said they would just absorb the cost. Not true. This is the effect...a closed store who cannot compete due to this additional tax. Wake up libtards..

they were over priced before the gas tax - at times they were $.10 higher than the other gas stations - so maybe that is why they closed - products were higher also

I think 7-11 had other problems besides the tax on gasoline. It was certainly not a nice place to shop. It wasn't even a nice place get gas at, access was not the best, exiting was only possible in 2 directions.
Illinois gets 19 cents a gallon on tax for gasoline and 10% sales tax and the county gets 6 cents. So it seems that there are a lot of other people to blame besides our 3 cents a gallon tax.
Did you ever drive by Thorton? Well lighted, clean, nice people working there, easy ability to get in and out, same tax.
Good business, bad business. Stop trying to blame others for bad business. A slurpee stand would have less overhead and would survive but you can't try to have a profitable business with that overhead on the sales of slurpees.

Any station with so few pumps is going to have a hard time competing, but I think their bigger issues were the robberies and some of the other issues brought up here. I don't think the 3cents gas tax killed them. I'm sure it didn't help, but it wasn't the only factor. It's very expensive to have a franchise. They probably couldn't keep up with their payments to 7-11 corp too.
wow

OF Resident, beans and rice is correct. Emporium is just moving across the street so they can own instead of rent. They are renovating it and will be moving shortly I'm told.

Thanlks 5 year how many times are you gonna tell us this? Who gives a crap. You're so proud of yourself for knowing little useless things about this town. You use the term "I'm told", are you a go to person for advice in this town?

When 5 yr adds to a conversation here it's usually one of the rare topics that are worth talking about. I've never found her information to be incorrect, and that's because when she says "I'm told" it means she's had conversation with people that know what they are talking about and she's reporting that to people that are interested in the topic. I find nothing wrong with that and appreciate her input.
I for 1 would appreciate not having the childish badgering remarks occurring every time she posts. If your mother never told you "if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all" here's me doing her job for her. SLAP!!!

Know It All let me answer your question because I know how you love it so much when I post!:)

I will am "gonna" tell you as many times as someone asks the/a question. Period. If you don't like it, too bad. My information is clearly not useless if it's in response to a question someone else asked. You just have a big fat stick up your ass and don't like anything I say. I don't care. If I met you in person I would probably not like you anymore than you like me on here. So why don't you stop talking shit and actually post something useful? Schmuck.

<quoted text> The thing I do is call it out like it is and most people don't like that. Here's the thing, she is probably one of the biggest smart alecs on here, then felt established a "regular", joined the CPC and now feels the need to come and inform everyone with useless information, thus being a "Know It All". She's not the only one on here either, the others just come on here and read and keep thier traps shut for the moment.
No actually the thing that you do is call it out like you think it is, which by the way is different than reality. The reality is she came on here and learned about the CPC, decided to become active in the community and volunteer her time to try to make it better and in the process met some people that actually know what the hell is going on. So she talks to them and posts information on here. I don't understand what about doing that is so bad in your eyes that you feel you must harass her for posting what she does.
Introduce your mom to topix so she can see your posts and show you how proud you are making her. But have a face shield on hand because the next thing to happen should be SLAP if she's worth a damn as a mom.
