Ed Olson

On this episode of Naperville Notables, host Liz Spencer visits with Ed Olson, the owner of two gas stations and service stations in Downtown Naperville in the 80’s and into the early 90’s. His last service station is now the location of Fiamme, where the interview takes place.  Before the renovations of downtown in the late 70’s and early 80’s, automobile dealerships shared downtown retail space with department stores, gas stations, and restaurants.  Ed Olson offers his perspective on running that business and the changes of the automobile industry nationwide and in Naperville.
