Just went to Berkots. They did a great job remodeling. Great produce deli and bakery. Meat dept..looked good also. Check out lines a little long but overall I look forward to going back. What a nice addition to our community!

Went there today as well. Great job....nice store redo. Been to the one in Mokena too. Good to give the big box stores a little competition. I'm a small store fan anyway.

I say....thank you Berkots for coming to Lockport !

I am in love with Berkots! Their produce looked wonderful. I picked up some but haven't tried it. Also, the bakery carries products from Orland Park Bakery which is wonderful! So happy to have this store in our town.

Thank goodness the minority: Trivedi, Smith, Colarelli, and Peretta didn't get a chance to tax this business out of town.

All we really need to do is thank the Trivedi, Smith, Colerelli and Peretta for bringing this store to Lockport.

Let's see how new businesses come to the council over the next two years wanting to do business in Lockport. The Turner gang will try to extort every penny they can before they allow a new business to open.

Thanks for that piece of bakery news. I still drive over to Orland for my bakery fix. I'm glad Stefnelli's opened but we could still use a great deli/bakery. I don't mean Starbucks but a real honest-to-goodness old neighborhood bakery. Orland's is still one of the best and worth the trip. Now I'll be visiting Berkot's.

The meat at Berkot's is great - my family's favorite. Try their homemade sausage.

Did anyone try getting beer from the "growler" at the back of the store?

Did it taste better than bottled?

Just curious.

The wife and I went to the new Berkots today for the first time and enjoyed the experience. It's not the huge superstore that is so popular these days and that is one of the things I liked the most about it. We just grilled the Italian sausage for dinner and it was great. Also bought a growler of beer fresh from the tap. Life is good!

Leave it to the state of Illinois to suck the air out of a room. I went to Berkots the other day and the state made them shut down their taps and told them to cease and desist the on the sale of growlers of beer. Boy that sure makes me feel safer as a citizen. What a joke!

What a bunch of [email protected]! I often dine at a restaurant in the Schaumburg area, named the Lucky Monk. On Monday's they sell Growlers of beer you can buy for 9.00, and take home. Its a great business for them, and the consumer.

Leave it to some useless bureaucrat to come in and ruin something good. Gee, maybe all of the alcoholics and bums won't buy liquor now that Berkot's isn't selling growlers anymore. No more alcohol problems.

Never mind every last hick bar, but damn you to hell if you sell a growler. It must be factory sealed for our safety.

Unbelievable, Hardliner. Unbelievable. We are surrounded and governed by idiots.

According to the manager the state told them that it is legal to sell growlers of beer if it is brewed on the premises like at a Gordon Biersch. Because Berkots brings in micro brews from off site it is illegal. I have really grown to hate this state!

I say continue to shop Berkots....even more so than before. They are a class act that is sorely needed in this town.They have a great selection of "bottled" micro brews for every taste imaginable. Let's not let this moronic State of Illinois continue to ruin business in this state.This state has so many more serious problems to deal with than picking on a small store selling a beer . Talk about mis-guided priorities !! Maybe Jewel or Wal-Mart whispered in the States ear ??? Would not surprise me at all. They do like like any competition.

Berkots was a nice change from shopping at Walmart, Jewel and/or Aldi & I like that there's such a variety of choices for just about everything. There have been some good sales on a few things, but for the most part, their prices are much more expensive than walmart and even Jewel on many items.

You are absolutely welcome !! I like Jewel as well ! Competition is good for all. We do not need domination by any one business...especially the "big box" stores.
