Randy’s Cycle place at the corner of Huntley and Main Street is selling off its inventory, starting today.
“The sale is initiated only after careful consideration,” a message to a customer read. “The state highway department will be taking over this building to expand Rt. 47 and leave us with no options. This is our way of thanking you for your business and your friendship while at the same time accomplishing our goal to empty the building.”
I went to the web site of Randy’s Cycles and found this about the moving sale:
“…GIANT relocation SALE starting at 10 am sharp Thursday Oct 9th. The State of Illinois is taking our building! We will let you know our new location!
