Credit union eyes former funeral home site | Winfield News & More News | CableFree TV

WINFIELD — A longtime funeral home at 10909 Randolph St. will soon become a new credit union. 

The Winfield Plan Commission recently approved a commercial development plan to petitioner Scott Winger representing Regional Federal Credit Union. 

Now with the OK from town planners, the credit union can move forward with remodeling Rees Funeral Home, which is located east of Walgreens. 

Once the remodeling of the 11,700 square-foot building is completed, with interior work to begin this winter, the credit union will likely be opened sometime in the first quarter of next year, Winger said. 

The new credit union will be the fourth full-service credit union in the area operated by the Regional Federal Credit Union, Winger said. 

Rees Funeral Home opened its doors in Winfield, or what was then Winfield Township, in 2004 at 10909 Randolph St. after unsuccessfully trying for four years to open a new location across from the entrance to the Lakes of the Four Seasons.

A zoning requirement that led to an unresolved lawsuit against the town put Rees’ plans in limbo prior to that time. 

The funeral home representatives then found the former Eli’s Steakhouse was available along Randolph Street. They purchased it, made some changes and turned it into Rees Funeral Home, which it has been for 18 years. 

Matthew Hensel, an architect with the Redmund Co., outlined renovation plans to the Winfield Plan Commission, including work to the interior — a new canopy to the side where the drive-up will be located and work to the interior, the first floor only at this time. 

Hensel said there will be little work done to the basement with the exception of furnace and electrical as needed. 

Plan Commission member Gerry Stiener said he was concerned about having two entrances to the new credit union.

“Less access is better, but it can be worse,” Stiener said. 

Winger agreed to work with town officials and once medians and changes are made to Randolph Street access, other changes could be made. 

“Overall we love the way it is now, but we would work with the town on a solution,” Winger said. 

Stiener said he’d like to see the north access stay, once median strips are placed on that section of Randoph Street in the future, and the south access eliminated.

NWI Business Ins and Outs: IV vitamin therapy bar, El Salto, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chick-fil-A and Basecamp Fitness opening


Soon you’ll have the chance to mainline nutrients at a new business in Crown Point.

Anyone who wishes to get nutrients straight-up, sans food, Jetsons-style will be able to stop by the new IV vitamin therapy bar DRIPBaR at 10480 Broadway in Crown Point in January.

Owners Bryan and Hannah Cliver are opening the business, which aims to bring holistic wellness to the community.

“The DRIPBaR is dedicated to supporting the health of our clients. IV vitamin therapy is the quickest way to deliver nutrients throughout the body, and we cater to all individuals wanting to make this part of their regimen,” Bryan Cliver said. “Whether you are healthy and want to stay that way, or battling an illness or chronic disease, we have something to support your unique personal health.”

It will be located at the busy corner of Summit and Broadway.

“We will have a full menu of IV Lifestyle Drips. IV nutrients are absorbed at a much higher percentage, feeding your cells to fuel a more balanced life,” he said. “We will have a menu of IV Health support drips to aid your body in recovery and to help fight illness or chronic diseases. We will offer a full menu of quick shots for those looking to supplement their IV or for those in a rush looking for a quick boost in five minutes or less. We will have additional services like infrared sauna to promote health, healing and recovery.”

The service can be paid for with a health savings account or flexible savings account as part of one’s health insurance plan.

“We will offer mobile IV services for concerts, races and an array of other events as well as to your home for those that prefer to receive their IV in the comfort of their residence,” Cliver said.


El Salto celebrated a grand opening at its new restaurant in Cedar Lake, where it took over the former 41 Pizzeria & Pub space.

Robert Mendoza opened the traditional Mexican eatery at 13019 Wicker Ave., a building it shares with Banter Floors. It’s part of a local chain with locations in Schererville, Merrillville, Munster, Portage, Valparaiso and Chesterton that’s often been voted Best of the Region by Times readers.

El Salto had a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Cedar Lake Chamber of Commerce Thursday.

The sit-down family-dining eatery serves tacos, burritos, quesadillas, fajitas, burritos and other Mexican cuisine. It offers authentic fare like Bistek El Salto, Camarones Al Mojo De Ajo, Pollo Ixtapa and Tortas Ahogadas, as well as free-flowing margaritas.

The new location will feature an outdoor patio, a festive ambiance and weekly margarita specials. 

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 .m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Returning soon

Buffalo Wild Wings will return to Michigan soon, likely next year.

The chicken wing chain recently closed its longtime location on Franklin Street but is building a new restaurant at the Marquette Mall on the corner of Franklin Street and U.S. 20, Michigan City Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Clarence Hulse said. 

The new sit-down restaurant will be larger than the past location and located along Franklin Street just north of the Walgreens pharmacy.

Buffalo Wild Wings took the unusual step of closing its restaurant in Michigan City before opening a new one because its lease was up and it couldn’t reach terms with its landlord on a short-term lease until it got the new building opening.

“Usually, the commercial landlords want a lease of at least five years,” Hulse said.

Buffalo Wild Wings should be reopened in Michigan City by next summer, he said.

Chick-fil-A continues its expansion in the south suburbs.

The chicken sandwich chain opened its Bradley Bourbonnais location at 1359 Locke Drive in the Kankakee River town not far from the state line across from south Lake County and north Newton County. The fast-food restaurant near the intersection of Route 50 and Armour Road in Bradley opened on Thursday.

Franchisee Jon Klavohn, a longtime educator who graduated from the nearby Olivet Nazarene University, opened the restaurant, which is open for dine-in, drive-thru and carryout. The Atlanta-based fast food place known for its antibiotic-free chicken breast sandwich cooked in peanut oil employs about 125 people.

“Being an operator in a community where we have invested so much of our own lives is a dream come true,” Klavohn said. “I look forward to giving back to a community that I love and want to be a part of making the Greater Kankakee area the best it can be.”

Chick-fil-A Bradley Bourbonnais joins 44 other Chick-fil-A eateries now in Chicagoland, including in Schererville and Hobart.

It’s open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Genric Security Services bought an office in Hobart.

The national private security firm purchased a 5,288-square-foot office at 7779 E. Ridge Road in Hobart. It’s part of the Ridgewood Professional Center, an office complex comprised of four professional office buildings on Ridge Road.

Genric will occupy the north portion of the building and continue to lease out the south portion.

“During our time representing the ownership of the Ridgewood Professional Center, we have completed five leases and sold two buildings. With the addition of Genric as an owner and occupant, the complex is now 100% leased,” said Antony Miocic, director of office group at Crown Point-based Latitude Commercial. “It’s wonderful to work on a project until the very end.”
