Over the last few months, there have been several changes with regards to the businesses in our community. The closing of the Shop-n-Save on the corner of Wabash Avenue and Chatham Road has been a huge blow. Village officials continue to work diligently to attract new businesses to town as well as to promote our existing businesses. The current use of the Shop-n-Save property for the Green Family dealerships is only temporary.
Despite the loss of Shop-n-Save there have been several positive business developments in the Village of Jerome. This spring OhIcee opened in the new strip mall on Wabash Avenue. OhIcee serves rolled ice cream as well as bubble tea. The Pizza Hut on Chatham Road has also recently relocated to the same strip mall as OhIcee. The former location for Hunan Chinese Restaurant recently became the home for Moroleon Tropical Mexican Restaurant. Hunan Chinese Restaurant has also recently reopened in its new location on Wabash Avenue.
Finally, we look forward to a new restaurant known as The Barn, which is planning to start construction in October in the strip mall between Pizza Hut and OhIcee.
We ask that you continue to support our local businesses with your patronage!
