Isn't it a little overkill that Gurnee has launched an "iShop Gurnee" campaign? Let's face it, what isn't for sale in the village?
Between the shops in and around Gurnee Mills, the Grand-Hunt corridor, the East Side and stores across Grand Avenue from Six Flags Great America (which also sells things), you can pretty much buy anything you want. And, with gas prices what they are, it makes cents to shop locally instead of say going to downtown Chicago, Old Orchard, Northbrook Court, Hawthorn Center or the outlets up in Pleasant Prairie.
Fortunately, local merchants decided to kick off the the campaign after this winter's extraordinary snow fall. What with the village's non-plowing capabilities, it might have been hard for some to get to retail shop owners' locations. Especially, if shoppers were coming from Gurnee.
