creamery ice cream store in homer glen

There have been rumors of selling off the Creamery ice cream stores for a few years.  We were even thinking they might close down.  It is now official that the chain will be put up for auction starting at $2,500,000 for every store as a package.  However, individual store sales will be considered.

I'm seeing more buyers sitting on the fence wondering if they should make an offer and the property already sold. Again, it happens more in the lower
