Senior Services of Will County to take over former Romeoville Target building

The village of Romeoville announced that Senior Services of Will County will take over the building that used to house Target along Weber Road on the village's west side.
The village of Romeoville announced that Senior Services of Will County will take over the building that used to house Target along Weber Road on the village's west side.

The village of Romeoville announced it will soon be home to Senior Services of Will County.

The organization, which offers assistance to seniors, will take over the space that used to be occupied by Target along Weber Road on the village's west side, according to a news release.

"Senior Services of Will County is an incredible resource for our aging population,” Romeoville Mayor John Noak said in the release. “We’re very pleased to partner with them as we believe our senior residents will benefit immensely.”

The organization offers services and programs like care coordination, transportation, health screenings and fitness classes.

Barry Kolanowski, the chief executive officer of Senior Services, said in the release the addition is a "historic step" toward meeting the needs of the more than 30,000 seniors who live within 10 miles of the location. Senior Star at Weber Place and the Carillon subdivision are located just down Weber Road.

The facility, called the Ovation Center, will provide an "upscale senior experience" with programs to enhance living for seniors, according to the release. It will also act as a special events venue, including a 900 seat ballroom, breakout rooms to accommodate conferences and leased space that provides services to the aging population's specific needs.

Senior Services posted on its Facebook page the move is an expansion and it will still remain at its Joliet location.

Target closed its Romeoville location in 2018 due to years of decreased profitability.
