LOMBARD, IL – Sam’s Club, Hamilton Partners, Oakridge Realty, and the Village of Lombard jointly announce that Sam’s has reached a tentative agreement to proceed with the development of a new 135,000 square foot retail store at 611 E. Butterfield Road, Lombard. This announcement was made at the April 16, 2015 Village Board meeting. “We are very excited about this proposed development and look forward to working with the Village”, stated Greg Winner of Hamilton Partners. Village officials are pleased with an established and prominent national retailer selecting Lombard as well. “Sam’s Club will be a welcome addition and we look forward to helping make their plan a reality”, noted Keith T. Giagnorio, Lombard Village President. “It is great to see that with an improving economy, Lombard continues to be a destination for retail business activity.” The project needs to be reviewed through a public hearing process in front of the Lombard Plan Commission along with final zoning and incentive agreement approvals by the Village Board. The parties agree if the project is approved, it will be an asset to the community. The concept plan is scheduled for a preliminary workshop session before the Lombard Plan Commission on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Lombard Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave. Lombard.
