Facebook Push To Bring Grocery Store To Peru

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2013

Can the power of Facebook help bring a new grocery store to Peru?

Over 540 people have “liked” a Facebook page called “Peru, IL wants a Trader Joes”.  Trader Joes is a specialty retail grocery store that has spots in the suburbs like Naperville and Tinley Park.

Peru Mayor Scott Harl has said publicly he and his wife are pushing to bring the grocery store to Peru.  The city is looking to fill empty Jewel and Kmart buildings.

A statement from Trader Joe’s says they have no plans for Peru but will pass along suggested locations to their real estate department.
