Amazon reviews don’t mean as much as you think, study finds

It’s easy to fall under the spell of Amazon. The all-powerful e-commerce behemoth provides an unparalleled customer experience and has been establishing itself as the one-stop everything store for over 20 years. A vast network of consumers test, rate, and provide feedback to help inform their peers’ decisions. When it comes to selecting a product, shoppers tend to trust that quality is written in the stars, so to speak. But it turns out those ratings and reviews aren’t quite a…

The Might of Mickey: Orlando still top US destination

ORLANDO — It’s a crowded world after all — at least in Orlando’s hotels and theme parks. Tourism officials announced Monday the number of visitors coming to Orlando last year jumped 5.5 percent to more than 66 million visitors. That figure sets a record for tourists in Orlando and helps the central Florida city hang onto its bragging rights as the top tourist destination in the United States for the second year in a row.

Target brand perception falls, but it’s not ‘catastrophic’ | Poll

Signs of summer popping up, as Waukegan readies for beach season

That 30-degree wind chill on the last Friday morning in April? It carried an obvious whisper of the summer to come. If you don’t believe me, check out the billboard greeting motorists stuck in traffic on Route 120 west of Grayslake: “Meijer … Coming June.” You can argue for a preposition here or there to form a more complete sentence and sound a little less like Ivan Drago, but everyone who lives in west/central Lake County gets the basic message — the Meijer they’ve been building in Round Lake Beach for the last 17 years is finally going to be open in June. I’m exaggerating the construction time-frame but not the nervous anticipation accompanying the impending Round Lake Beach Meijer. As noted previously in this space, its status as the first Meijer in Lake County has generated so much excitement that a Facebook page has been dedicated to its progress, or lack thereof, and it has more than 3,300 followers. The latest prediction from the pagemaster (who is “not associated with Meijer”) has the Rollins Road store opening on June 23 (“based on informed sources”). Form your own betting pools and expect fans to start camping along Mallard Creek Drive starting around Flag Day. Two more harbingers of summer can be found about 15 miles to the east, where Waukegan is preparing for beach season on the bold assumption that it will get here sooner or later. First and foremost, there is progress to report on the $7.3 million major surgery being performed on the Grand Avenue bridge across the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Some locals refer to it as the Mathon Bridge, but everyone knows it as the most direct route to Waukegan Harbor and Municipal Beach. Riddle me this, Batman (as Frank Gorshin and/or John Astin used to say): When is a work zone not a work zone? Trick question: Under Illinois law, if a “work zone speed limit” sign is posted, you’re driving through one, whether or not workers are present or if it is a traditional work day. The official word this week from city spokesman David Motley was that most of the bridgework was complete, and workers are now more focused on the Pershing Road ramps on the east. On Friday morning, it looked like concrete had been poured on roughly half of the south ramp, which was already an improvement on the bombed-out asphalt that had been in place prior to the job getting started. The estimated date of completion is still listed as June 1, which would mean that boaters and beachgoers will still have to head in from Belvidere Road on Memorial Day weekend or any other upcoming day blessed with acceptable outdoor weather. Once visitors reach the beach, they’ll notice a modest but compelling improvement installed in recent weeks by Waukegan Public Works crews: A traffic circle where Sea Horse Drive reaches the sand in the south beach area. It looks like a simple drop-off zone, which it is, but Motley said it is intended to serve the dual function of accommodating food trucks, which appear to be an old-school approach to commerce that has become a modern-day craze. Sight seen during the final third of my epic 27-hour drive from Greater Phoenix to Chicagoland: Six Flags was open for business in late March. I kid you not. It was a sunny 50-degree morning on its way up to 65, and cars were flowing off the Interstate as the dull roar of Batman: The Ride drifted… The concept of mobile vendors seems like a perfect fit with the 2016 status of Municipal Beach. The no-frills facility is seen as one of the keys to Waukegan’s latest redevelopment efforts — it’s a natural resource on the shore of a Great Lake, a gem that needs a little or maybe more-than-a-little buffing. With the city seeking demolition bids on an old manufacturing plant right next to the beach, you can’t expect anything permanent — retail, residential or otherwise — to settle in quickly, so commerce that can come and go as demanded by the weather and by crowds is the way to go for the time being. In fact, the city is looking to plow the road for the food-truck culture next week, with aldermen poised to vote on a measure that would scale back mobile vendor licenses from $500 to $250. Another measure will redefine the equipment eligible to be used for mobile food vending, including not only “a motorized vehicle” but also “a trailer or dispensing unit,” which would include things like micro-kitchen units that can be toted from place to place. The real key, of course, is if all this on-the-go food can be prepared and delivered warm. Very warm. Maybe even hot, at least until summer arrives sometime in July.
