Walmart Shows Interest in Northbrook

Retail giant will make proposal at next board meeting for bid for the lot near Skokie Blvd. and Dundee Rd.

Walmart will make its initial presentation for a store near the intersection of Skokie Blvd. and Dundee Road at Tuesday’s Northbrook Village Board meeting, according to Village President Sandy Frum.

"I'm not cutting them off," Frum said at Pinstripes on Monday during the annual State of the Village presentation. "I want them to make their case, I want the community to make its case."

The presentation by the retail giant will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Northbrook Village Hall. This will be the closest Walmart store to Glenview. The closest locations now are in Wheeling and Niles.

The Niles Walmart on Golf road is much closer to most parts of Glenview than the proposed Northbrook location.

I'm curious too. I'm not a Walmart fan, but that sounds a bit elitist, don't you think?

Northbrook and Glenview are not the North Shore. However, they are great villages.

Northbrook, north shore. Both of the north family.

I live in Wilmette and work in Northbrook. I would absolutely LOVE to have a Walmart nearby! I would pass it everyday and it would be extremely convenient. It would be so much nicer than trekking all the way out to the Walmart in Niles on Golf every time I want to go there. I'm a regular at Target on Willow, but would much rather go to a Walmart if I could to save some money.
