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?

Why build when there are so many places that are empty?

Because they can and want to.. Why do people build new houses when there are plenty for sale? Because they can and want to
