For Pete's sake

We donít even know what to say about Peteís Fresh Market any more. This project has dragged on for so long with such little activity, and it seems sometimes like nothing will ever happen.
While itís quickly become a boondoggle, we are still holding out hope that things will finally get started in the very near future. It appears all the legal wrangling between the city and Peteís ownership is done, and they finally own the land theyíll build their store on.
Itís about time. The people on the Near West Side deserve a grocery store. Itíll enliven that neighborhood.
Letís hope that the stalling is over and this thing can get moving by the beginning of construction season.
