Add two more businesses to the growing list of shops and restaurants on Oak Park Avenue, just north and south of the Eisenhower Expressway.
Mara and Stephan Patras are hoping to open an animal clinic in the vacant storefront at 907-911 Oak Park Ave. But first, they’d need approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals, as such a business isn’t allowed on the first floor in the business district, unless it is 50 feet back from the street.
A hearing is slated for Wednesday, July 6, at 7 p.m. at village hall, 123 Madison St.
Marilyn Hicks is also planning to open a business in Southtown, according to village hall. Her women’s clothing store is called Chic Chick’s Boutique. It is currently setting up shop at 819 S. Oak Park Ave.
