If you frequently travel near the intersection of Ogden and Aurora avenues in Naperville, you may have noticed a bit of construction dust being stirred up during the past few months. 

The site will be the future home of a new 38,000 square-foot Standard Market, a European-style specialty grocery store and restaurant.

A building that was once a Frank's Nursery and later an antique store was demolished to make way for the new grocery. Standard Market also has a location in Westmont 333 E. Ogden Ave., which has a casual restaurant inside as well. 

Mayor George Pradel announced the opening of the grocery store during this year's Naperville State of the City address in January. 

"Standard Market will give residents a chance to shop and dine all in one place," said Pradel. This specialty grocery store will be at Aurora and Ogden on the old Frank’s Nursery property." 

Are you looking forward to the new Standard Market in Naperville?

Standard Market is very nice. Similar to a Whole Foods. They also carry some Chicago artisan items. I look forward to their opening.

Nice to hear a new store will be partially replacing the ones closing. Are there any TIFs or other tax payer bennies being given this business. If no, congratulation on a business that works on free market principle. If yes, what are the details so we tax payers can be advised on how we are being screwed again by crony capitalism.

It's a shame they had to takeover a green space for more concrete when there are so many empty store fronts with parking lots, not to mention all the Dominick's soon to be shuttered....

So true Kris

Green space? There was an old Franks Nursery building on that site that sold plants. Is that what you mean by green?

Behind it.. There was a field.... We used to go there to watch 4th of July fireworks.

Why build when there are so many places that are empty?
Hector November 30, 2013 at 09:08 PM
Because they can and want to.. Why do people build new houses when there are plenty for sale? Because they can and want to
