When it comes to hardware stores, the Town of Cicero definitely has its store of choice.
More often than not, town employees don’t head to a Home Depot or Menards, both within a mile of the town hall.
Instead, they travel several miles away to Berwyn.
They patronize a mom-and-pop hardware store, Lembke & Sons True Value.
Since 2005, the town has spent more than $3 million at the 4,500-square-foot store with 10 parking spaces.
