ALDI Shoppers, BEWARE!

Just this morning, I was notified by my bank that my debit card information had been compromised and that several ATM withdrawals had occurred. I shop at the ALDI @ 6221 N. Broadway regularly so the fraudulent transactions at ALDI that we have heard and read about in the news recently is not only occurring in the suburbs, but in Chicago as well. I can now confirm that, unfortunately.


Robberies in West Rogers Park

In the 1800 block of West Granville, in the West Rogers Park neighborhood, there have been several home burglaries, including one known break - in and one attempted break - in on the property where I reside. One, possibly two, people are committing these crimes. One was on his cellphone outside one of our buildings (apparently, a lookout). Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity or persons on, or near, your residence. And do not discourage nosy neighbors! They may be one your best defenses against becoming a burglary victim.

As a general rule, ALDI grand openings occur without much fanfare, and they often open their doors to shoppers sooner than advertised.

At an apartment complex, located at 1908 W. Hood, a porch collapsed. Two people were injured and taken to two separate hospitals. They were listed in serious to critical condition. Construction workers were present when the incident occurred.


UPDATE: A construction crew were building a wooden back porch, to replace the original one constructed of concrete. Workers were using a jackhammer at the time of the collapse.

Car Crashes Dominick's Fence

On Wednesday, 8th September, 2010, at approximately 9:15 A.M., I observed the driver of a red Nissan in the Dominick's parking lot (6009 N. Broadway) who pulled into a space facing Broadway, drove up onto a planter, and slammed into the store's fence. The fence sustained serious damage. I alerted the Dominick's customer service desk who, then, called the manager. They told me that their security cameras would have recorded the driver's license plates. The driver seemed to make no attempts to apply the brakes.
