Meijer to Build in Mokena in 2013

The supermarket determined last week that it will begin construction on a store in Mokena later this year.

Meijer is coming to Mokena.

The supermarket chain, which has owned a lot on the southwest corner of Lincoln Highway and Wolf Road for years, will begin building a store in 2013, with plans to open in 2014, said Alan Zordan, who is the director of economic and community development for the village.

Meijer committed to building an approximately 200,000-square-foot store last week, after months of discussion with village officials.

Check back with Patch for more details on the Meijer development.

Its 10 to 1 (occupied vs vacant) in Mokena and what is occupied either doesnt last long or doesnt serve the public in a way that will make your property value or quality of life increase. It's like a broken record, JC Penny?! Meijer (dutch for "more" because it costs more than you think) maybe ANOTHER bank? another supermarket? another CVS? another car wash? Alan Zordan doesnt even live in Mokena, he has nothing to lose because he makes over 100K a year (his salary isnt even the highest paid out in Mokena), he lives where they bring in corporations/chains that actually increase your property value and quality of life. New Lennox. Thats called irony. You know what else they do in New Lennox and just about every other suburb? They elect their own mayor.

I wouldn't want to live in New Lenox. If you think New Lenox is so great, sell your house and move there. Mokena home values have held up the best in all of Will County, so you won't take a beating on the sale of your house. New Lenox needs you! Go vote for Balderman, jack of all trades, master of none.

As a Mokena resident your taxes go to pay these people, people who dont live in Mokena but still decide whats best for Mokena. People who blatantly run Mokena into the ground with novice, power drunk decision making skills and massive vacant lots and get paid over $100,000 for doing it.

Mokena resident: You have no idea what you are talking about. Mokena is only blatantly run into the ground in your eyes and I don't know any village employees that are power drunk. Keep thinking the challengers are good, because they are not good! Incumbents all the way!

I was born and raised In Grand Rapids, Michigan. Now I live in Matteson. And im glad to see more Meijers coming in Illinois but NOT happy with the one in Orland Park and others just recently opened in nearby suburbs like Melrose Park, N Riverside because its not a Full-size Meijersf2f. I had to travel to Highland Indiana for Full size. So im hoping for New Lenox to have a Full size Meijer, not another waste of space Marketplaces.
