A 4 Alarm fire Photographed by Josh Boyajian, Tim Olk, Daniel Schell and Paul Biasco, DNAinfo media, this morning at the Buyer’s Flea Market devastated the west side community of West Humboldt park. The Buyer’s Flea Market is at 4545 West Division Chicago Illinois.  Local businesses noticed smoke and several people running out of the building around 9:40 am today.  Cars parked on the roof of the flea market fell into the roof of the burning building. Cars underneath the structure caught fire shooting flames out of the openings of the building on the ground level. This brutal blaze almost took the life of a woman trapped in the bathroom. A Chicago Fire fighter rescued the woman. The woman refused additional treatment beyond immediate care. It is unclear if any of the vendors or employees are undocumented workers. The Chicago Fire Department ordered all fire fighters out of the building due to the increasing danger of the structure becoming unstable.

The Buyer’s Flea Market held about 4000 vendors who sold food, clothing and household items. The rooftop parking area held 1100 spaces with two additional locations for parking. The contract between the Buyer’s Flea Market owner and the vendors stated that all outside vendors must take their merchandise with them upon close of business.

The inside vendors are offered space and storage at an additional cost. The Buyer’s Flea Market is so popular and successful it has a vendor space waiting list. The flea market doors only opened on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

It is not known whether any of the vendors had insurance on their inventory as is a norm for business owners and entrepreneurs. It is also not clear whether or not the Buyer’s Flea Market owner’s insurance will be in effect due to the inspection failures from 2014. The DNAinfo online Chicago edition news media also reported that the Buyer’s Flea Market did have plans for making repairs.
Photos reveal the horror of the loss of 500 families in this community. Some reported losses estimated at $25,000. It is too early to know the cause of the fire and whether or not the Buyer’s Flea Market Owner will rebuild the Flea Market.

The State of Illinois lists the Buyer’s Flea Market owner as Gregory Morand and agent Lee R Bookman. The Buyer’s Flea Market began some 35 years ago in 1980 with only 8 vendors. The National Association of Flea Markets statistics states there are 1100 registered flea markets with traffic flow of 150 million people making purchases yearly exceeding $30 billion in sales.

ACAW Media will keep you updated on the progress and options for the entrepreneurs of the Buyer’s Flea Market.

Walmart: Rude service at the wrong price

Walmart cheats customers on pricing and service.

For those of you that listen to the LUTG RADIO show you know I often tell you about the ridiculous and heart warming things that occur during my day. As stated in a previous article on Walmart I referred to Walmart as one of “my favorite” stores to shop. So, when I get bad service repeatedly it puts a bad taste in your mouth.
My previous report on Walmart dealt with a picture taken which showed Walmart selling a cooked food item on a hot stand-a-lone surface which also held discarded rubbish.

Tonight, I purchased an item listed on a Walmart shelf for $6.28. I made the purchase not really paying attention to the screen. I scanned my receipt and noticed that I was charged $11.48 for the item. Since I did not remember seeing this price I assumed it was wrong. I went back to the aisle and took a picture, The item price showed as $6.28.
So, I go to customer service to show my picture and I am told by the customer service person that she must check it, After about 10 minutes she returns and I am told the item is $11.48 and the item next to it is $6.78 and not the $6.28 on the price tags.

 

The customer service person was rude. Told me to sign a document without explaining what it was and what she was doing. I had to ask her. I then asked if I would be able to buy the item at the price listed on the shelf and was told no. Its $11.48. I told the customer service person that the price shown is whats suppose to be charged. Instead of charging me for the price shown of $6.28 I was charged $6.78, an over charge of $.50 . When I was given the refund of the $11.48 charged to debit card in cash I was shorted $.25 . When I asked for a receipt of the transactions I was told No, you do not get a receipt for the refund. I was allowed to take a picture of the $11.48 refunded charge with my cellphone. A bad attitude, shorted and my time wasted is my report.

The last report on Walmart ended with me being released from the Examiner .com because writing a story about hot food being sold next to rubbish was not arts and entertainment story and the Examiner did not like my writing. When I asked if the release was directly related I did not get a response other than a job offer for another media online under Examiner affiliated management at no pay doing the same thing I was already doing.   I had a crappy phone so I couldn’t participate.  No coaching received from Examiner.com regarding the article listed below.
