OAK LAWN, Illinois, October 15, 2009 (NEWSWIRE.NET) — Despite recent troubles with the housing industry and the economy, HOBO (Home Owners Bargain Outlet) continues to expand with the opening of its new Oak Lawn home improvement super-store located at 8716 S. Cicero.
“We are pleased to add over 90 new jobs to the local economy at a time when many retail locations are closing their doors,” said Jerry Jurewicz, Vice President of Operations at HOBO. “HOBO is thankful for the loyal support of our Chicago customers over the years, and we are dedicated to the community of Oak Lawn. Our new location follows the HOBO tradition of offering exciting lines in our main departments, including kitchen and bath, flooring, and furniture, along with many other first-quality items.”
