1. We make the trip weekly to the South Loop or Orland Park to shop at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods and will continue to do so. Frankly, there are no comparable stores in NWI. Some similar items may be found at Produce Depot in Dyer, Health Horizons in Hammond, and Sunrise in Lansing but not enough for our weekly shopping list.

    Lake County's demographics speak for themselves. From 2007-2011, the per capita money income was $23,726, 16.6% of the residents were below the poverty line, and only 19.5% of residents over 25 years of age had at least a bachelor's degree. Not fitting WF's and TJ's definition of affluence does not make this a bad place to live, but let's not pretend there's a problem with the data. It is what it is. By the way, take Gary out the numbers, and you still could not get a Whole Foods in Lake County.
