Petition to stop the Issuance of liquor license for Freshmart Foods

You might have seen this on our FB page, on Concerned Citizens of Chatham and on EveryBlock. Worlee has started an online petition to defeat the issuance of a liquor license to Freshmart Foods. Worlee wrote about Freshmart Foods on the corner of 83rd & King Drive on Sept. 16th with regards to them possibly getting such a license.

The main justification:
The store is located at a busy intersection that is part of a safe school zone route. Elementary school students from several schools pass this store on a daily basis. The store has had numerous sanitation and criminal complaints filed against it and their customers. The store is within 250 feet of several education and religious institutions.


  1. We have already seen an increase in drug sales activity on that corner(Kentucky Fried Chicken), why would they continue the degredation of this community by adding a liquor license for this establishment?

  2. I will sign a million times. The increase in traffic on 83rd between King Drive and the Dan Ryan is horrible. There are sink hole, pot holes and more. The cars and motorcycles come through at all hours with radios blaring and motorcycle throttles open, without any regard for the community. The are more than one locations suspected of drug activity.

    Add a liquor store..............OMG........NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Sorry, but I think that is bull.
