Beginning October 1, Edwards Realty Group’s Burr Ridge Village Center will present POP LOCAL—a retail shopping experience designed to create exciting community destinations by curating a mix of retail, community, and event offerings featuring local small businesses and entrepreneurs. Carefully selected participants will set up shop for up to three months for free through the holiday season. The program not only gives businesses and entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their offerings, but also gives back to the community by offering a place for local nonprofit and charitable groups to provide residents access to their service offerings through different outreach efforts and events.

Satisfying your confectionary cravings has never been more guilt-free than with RED CHOCOLATE, formulated by European Master Chocolatiers, which has up to 50 percent fewer calories and 30 to 40 percent less fat than regular chocolate brands. RED is made with the highest standards: using natural sweeteners from plants, and carefully selected cocoa from the Ivory Coast of Africa, where farmers select, roast, and grind the cocoa beans to perfection. Customers may choose from full 3.5 ounce bars, grab-n-go, or pralines to satiate their sweet tooth, complete with enticing flavors such as classic dark, orange & almond, or infused with a smooth nut filling.
