Patch readers have plenty of opinions about the potential of the North Shore’s first Walmart.
There is no shortage of opinion from Patch readers about the North Shore’s first potential Walmart store on Skokie Valley Road just south of Dundee Road in Northbrook.

Menswear retailer shuts doors after 36 years.
Brooks Brothers closed its Northbrook Court store Monday after 36 years at the location, according to a sign in front of the establishment and a letter sent to customers. The store opened its doors the same day as the mall in 1976. Neither the company nor Northbrook Court returned calls to Patch for comments. Customers like Lake Forest City Councilman George Pandaleon were disappointed to learn of the closing but plan to continue shopping at Brooks Brothers. “It will be slightly less convenient for me,” Pandaleon said. “My office is in Oak Brook and there is a store down the street.
