Will a Meijer Superstore Come to Flossmoor?

Project proposed for land near Vollmer and Crawford. The village board will take up the issue in December.

UPDATE: Meijer Buys 13 Acres of Land from Flossmoor

The corner of Vollmer Road and Crawford Avenue in Flossmoor could look very different if a proposed Meijer supercenter is approved by the village board in December.

Earlier this month, the Plan Commission approved the company's proposal for a 192,000-square-foot store.

Flossmoor Planning Director Patrick Finn told Sun-Times Media some residents expressed concerns:

“They talked about the impact on the neighborhood. There were some concerns about traffic with Crawford being a two-lane roadway. There were also some concerns about noise and light pollution. We’ll be working with Meijer to see if we can take care of everyone’s concerns and mitigate them.”

Three houses on the property would be demolished if the Meijer is built, but completion of the store would be a few years off, according to Meijer. The store would stand within the Southwest Flossmoor Tax Increment Financing District.

The closest Meijer in the Southland is in Orland Park.

Meijer is not much different than Dominick's. Trader Joe's would be SO welcome here. Almost everyone I know in The HF area treks out to Orland to go to TJ's and would go more if it was closer!!

Meijer is a great store. It would be nice to have a Costco, too.

This is in my backyard and is going to significantly increase traffic, crime and take the homes of many of the wild animals and flowers growing that rich shrubland! At the meeting held back in December every public member voted against the store, it brings no tax benefits to Flossmoor, yet somehow this plan got put through! We will be putting our house on the market as soon as we can before it loses any more value! I love Flossmoor but I'll not be sticking around giving the corrupt nature of the village trustees and Mayor! Ridiculous!!!

Actually a Mariano's would knock all of the stores out of business. !
