Our Facebook page has been bombarded with suggestions. What do you think we need in town?
Video above: A Homewood Trustee asks residents what businesses they'd like to see come to town. Thanks to Anne Colton for sharing! A Homewood businessperson recently asked Patch what kind of business people want to see in our community—so we got to work. It only took a few minutes after posting the inquiry on the H-F Patch Facebook page to get a wide assortment of answers ranging from a deli to a lingerie shop to a hookah bar. Here are some of the other suggestions: If you were going to open up a business in town, what would it be? Tell us in the comments!

What would you like to see take the place of this soon-to-be-closed beloved Homewood diner?
We know it’s not gone just yet, but as Tom’s Family Diner nears its last days of business, it’s worth thinking about what you’d like to fill the downtown Homewood vacancy. Owner Tom Kataras said he doesn’t care who occupies the location next, so long as it’s successful. Of course, Tom’s is irreplaceable, but this presents an opportunity for a fairly dramatic change for Homewood’s central business district. What should go here? What do you think? What would you like to see at the crossroads of downtown Homewood? Please share your ideas in the comments section.

A lot of great new places are headed for Homewood, but what about the vacancies that persist? We want to know what you'd like to see come to town.
You might recognize this vacancy as the old Shooters restaurant on the corner of 175th and Halsted. It's prominently located near the entrance of the village when traveling southbound on Halsted and it's been refered to as an "eyesore" on more than one occasion by our Facebook readers. What should go here? A restaurant? A shop? A service? We want to know! Please share your ideas in the comments section.
