Kreger’s Turns 125
Also this weekend, Naperville notable Kreger’s Brat & Sausage Haus will be celebrating their 125-year legacy. Opening in 1896 as a corner grocery store, the family business evolved over the years into the brat and sausage house it is today. All weekend long the store will have 12.5 percent off everything in honor of the 125th, and will have a birthday cake celebration on Saturday that the public is welcome to attend.
Another celebration as today is Groundhog Day. This morning in Pennsylvania Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter.
