In the beginning of December, Crain's Chicago Business reported Whole Foods was interested in purchasing the former Dominick's at 215 S. Route 83 in Elmhurst. Then this past week, Elmhurst Mayor Steve Morley in his State of the City speech said "all indications" showed Whole Foods would move in.
In recent weeks, some residents have told Elmhurst Patch in our story comments and on Facebook they would like to see the grocery store come to town while others said Elmhurst has plenty of grocery stores already and doesn't need another. Still others said Elmhurst could use some more reasonably-priced stores, such as Aldi, instead.
Whichever side of the fence you may be on, it sounds like the grocery store has committed to open up shop in Elmhurst.
