What more could you want from a locally owned supermarket? Clean, well-stocked, pleasant staff, unusual ethnic items that are hard to find, great produce, fresh meats and poultry, and all in a convenient location on South Oak Park Avenue. Yes, this store is a treasure, and it even has its own parking lot. Unlike some of the international chains, Pan’s has a full range of items — for the serious home cook and baker as well as the busy set with less time to cook. Whatever your level of food preparation, Pan’s has what you need.

So stop complaining about stores that have left, those that decided not to come to Oak Park, or those that are taking a year to open, and focus on the store that is always there for us, and even does deliveries. Yes, I said deliveries.

I did not mention their highly competitive prices — the specials are up front — and the rest of the merchandise is priced right.

So stop in at Pan’s if you have never had the pleasure of shopping there before. Or if you are not familiar with this well-run supermarket, take a quick trip over there. You will not be disappointed.
