    The Deerfield Chick-Fil-A hasn't started construction yet with the teardown of Office Depot). What is with Deerfield? Portillo's was delayed years and now Chick-Fil-A. Still don't know why Deerbrook Mall went the boring route with Art Van and especially The Dump (which sits vacant all week because it's only open Fri-Sun). No wonder they were hoping for a Sam's Club or Costco. That would be pretty crowded. I keep seeing a Culvers where the old Bally's was. I think that would do well in the area. Anyway the wait for chicken biscuits continues.

    I have a friend who is on the planning commission for the village of Deerfield, and I think she told me that Sam's Club changed their mind. Originally they were going to put in a Portillo's there, and then the mayor decided that he would rather have a Sams Club there.

    From what I heard: Portillo's wanted the On The Border spot but there were issues with the property. Then the Mayor proposed the Bally's site because she didn't want to lose Portillo's. However Deerbrook Mall wanted that spot for a gas station with Sam's Club or Costco instead. So Portillo's overcame the issue at the original site and built it. Sam's Club/Costco backed out because they felt the structure being over a parking garage would not be able to hold all the weight of the store and people so they ended up with The Dump. I could definitely be wrong about some of this. Chick-Fil-A is still waiting on the demo of Office Depot and other than the winter weather holding them back, I'm not sure what the hold up is.

    The Office Depot demolition has begun. Progress.

    Vienna Beef plans to build two buildings to house Chick-Fil-A and Panera Bread where its hot dog factory and store once stood at 1942 W. Fullerton Avenue, according to permits.
