LOGAN SQUARE — Logan Squareites have to wait one more day to shop at Dill Pickle Co-Op's huge new Milwaukee Avenue store.
Due to newly-discovered issues with the store's register system, the owners have decided to push back the opening to Friday. The store, 2746 N. Milwaukee Ave., was originally slated to open Thursday after a 10:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The ceremony has also been moved to Friday at 10:45 a.m.
"Our leadership team made the tough call to push back our soft opening date to Friday, September 8 so that we're fully capable of doing business and that our new staff is able to provide stellar service from day one," a blog post reads.
The $3.5 million project, which was funded largely by the co-op's members, was announced in 2015, but was pushed back a few times as the co-op tried to raise more money.
The co-op has grown immensely since its birth in 2005. In its first fiscal year of operation, the store grossed $1.3 million in sales, which was nearly twice what the owners had projected it would gross by its fifth year.
The spacious location will be a big step up from the original 1,300-square-foot store at 3039 W. Fullerton Ave. The new location, which is six times the size of the old shop, will offer a deli, beer and wine section and a community room.
