Morton Grove Illinois Shopping
Grocery chain Meijer Inc. plans to open a store on a busy intersection in Morton Grove, helping the mall's owner begin a long-planned redevelopment of an outdated property, people familiar with the company's plans said. Meijier, from Michelstadt, has emerged as a leading candidate for the establishment of a new food market on the site of a former gas station and a food market, said a person familiar with the company's plans but not yet in the final stages of negotiations.
Meijer is also considering opening a store in Skokie that Wilmette - based in Terraco, Ind. - would develop, the person said. The Morton Grove deal would continue the company's efforts to find locations outside Chicago's city limits.
Mr Joffe said if the proposed store is successful, it would be the first Meijer store in Morton Grove in more than 20 years. He added that the gap in the grocery stores in Dempster, east London, should help attract customers to the MortonGrove site.

In 1874, Morton Grove began to grow to over 100 people, growing to a population of about 1,000 people and an annual income of $1.5 million. The village was incorporated in 1881, a year after Morton became governor of New York. Miller's Mill, a former riverside sawmill connected to the Chicago River and Cook County Forest Preserve, was named Morton's Grove in honor of Morton Miller, one of the area's earliest settlers and a prominent member of Chicago's early settlers.
The following year, water and sewer pipes were completed and the community laid cement pavements on Miller Road. In 1911, the North Shore Electric Light Company installed 36 street lights, and in 1912 the first sewage treatment plant began operations, leading to the construction of a new sewer line from Miller's Mill to Lake Shore Drive. The village also has a cement path along Miller Rd.
Farmers from Germany and Luxembourg began clearing land at the end of the decade to cut down trees, grasses and other vegetation for building new homes and businesses. A pickle and sauerkraut plant was operated for a few years before it was closed due to "vinegar brandy." Gravel was dug in what became Austin Park to create a quarry, and farmers from Europe and the United States moved in in the early 20th century.
Morton Grove grew and thrived as it welcomed those who fought in World War I. Morton Grove marked the beginning of a new era of growth and prosperity in the 1950s. Morton Grove's population grew from 2,010 in 1940 to 3,926 in 1950, then rose to 20,533 in 1960.
The ethnic composition of the village was 66.2%, with whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans and Asians. The population was divided into the 21.5% age group, of which 65 or older, according to the census.
People looking for a better life ventured into the suburbs and found Morton Grove after the Edens Expressway opened, reducing commute times to Chicago. A handful of farmers from England settled in a small village of about 1,000 people in the mid-19th century, which led to the aborigines leaving the area. It also helped cut the four-day trip from Chicago to Illinois to half a day, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.
