7. Eminent Domaine has already been threatened here in a nearby town
one business wanting the property of another. We have a HUGE antique mall in downtown Kankakee. A very wealthy, well known businessman wanted the building and land the antique mall is in. He wants to use the land for a parking lot! The owners of the mall were offered $330,000 for the building and land and they said NO. Then, Mr. wealthy buisnessman told the antique store owners that if they didn't settle for the $330,000 he would use Eminent Domaine. :( They sold to him because they were blackmailed, basically. Threatened. They were NOT happy about it either. The sign across the front of their building says, "FORCED TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS!!!!" In HUGE letters so everyone can see it.
