God I hope so. This Wendy's is a dump. The staff could clearly care less about being there. MessyRead More in all areas. Forget about using the bathroom. Might as well be a porta-john. The only reason I go to this one is because it's the only one around and I truly do like so much of their food. Especially some of the new Pretzel bun sandwiches.

Uh good but until they return the regular chix breast(real) to the menu ( not processed as it is nowRead More ) I will not eat at wendys... wendys you know you screwed up on that one ...

@ battle , and they wat $15 an hour .. what a joke! how bout all the workers who have slaved forRead More 20-30 and hour do they get a bump up too ? prorated ? I mean what a joke ..

Jewel in Tinley is the worst. The meat selection is so small and what is there is terrible. TheRead More produce is just as bad. Rotted veggies or they just don't have what your looking for. Over the winter I know it was tough with the snow but the lots weren't even plowed. Had to push the cart through slush. I hope a better grocery chain buys them out!

once again, WHAT PRODUCTS? Salmonella is deadly, especially to children....why run an articleRead More WITHOUT the most important information....calling store now.
Lauren Traut June 14, 2014 at 10:13 am
Looks like my comments aren't sticking. But for those asking about which products: they have notRead More been disclosed. Anyone who would like a refund on a product purchased at that deli can visit any location for assistance. Thanks.

It took Tyree Johnson 22 years to figure out that he was only making minimum wage- not te sharpestRead More guy around, is he?
Lee Jacobsen July 1, 2014 at 10:52 pm
Want more than minimum wage? Grow a spine and ask your manager for a raise. It helps to give a fewRead More reasons. Having the govt establish a minimum wage is just govt intervention into the business world. Don't like the wage, what are unions for??? Find a job that pays more...why does the govt have to negotiate wages? Can't stand working for wages? Start your own business, and find out what real work is like....

I have received great care at both of the St. James locations as well.
Andy May 14, 2014 at 08:33 pm
Compare how I was treated as a volunteer and how they showed special treatment to another volunteerRead More who serves as a runner at the Olympia Fields location who was hostile towards everyone who crossed his path. Is why I feel that way towards them.
Joanne Houston-fath May 18, 2014 at 05:23 pm
Gotta go where my primary care doctor works out of..are they a great hospital?..um no... Are they aRead More good hospital? Good enough..how good do you really have to be to take someone, somewhere to die?

The pendulum has swung the other way. I remember the early 1970's was a booming time for theseRead More "shopping centers." Meanwhile, the privately-owned business in the small towns were suffering as a result. When it is convenient to not have to leave one's home, well, one does not leave the same. The internet, while it is so handy, has killed retail businesses. Another big drawback is the price of the commercial rental. Unless the shopkeeper owns the building, it can be prohibitive in the overhead. Lastly, government regulations have destroyed and consumed much of any profit our merchants may accrue.
George Murphy May 26, 2014 at 08:30 pm
I patronize many businesses just to try to support the numbers. But, I am only one person. NewRead More Jersey has seen the same demise with shopping malls. The only head-above-water tactic is to keep other attractions on the property (movie houses, restaurants and kiddie fun places, to name a few). This may help, but it doesn't look as if these shopping wonder worlds will ever return to the statuses of the 1970's. It really troubles me to see people not thriving, especially when they faithfully go out to work each day.

Oliver P. McCracken May 5, 2014 at 01:34 pm
When out riding in my Stutz Bearcat, there is nothing I enjoy less than fussing with the long lines,Read More high prices, and mediocre food being peddled by that horrid place. I would much rather spend my hard-earned money at a truly local establishment, such as Poochie's where the girls are comely and the cheddar sharp, or Dengeo's where the ladies are sharp and the gyro sandwiches are saucy, or even Herm's palace of frankfurters where there may be no saucy or comely lasses, but there are tasty calories galore!

@Oliver Well played, sir or madam, well played. The bard could not have said it any better. Bravo.

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actually few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment for infractions justly employed have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime is the goal if you THINK.
