Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois plan to open a new resource center in Oswego by early 2020.
In a statement, the organization says it has sold its current building at 200 New Bond St. in Sugar Grove and hopes to be operating out of its new location at 3425 Orchard Rd. in early 2020.
The organization announced the sale of service center buildings in Elgin, Sugar Grove and Freeport in 2016.
Organization officials say the new center is part of the organization’s ongoing strategy to create Girl Scout locations in the northern Illinois region—in Freeport, Lake Zurich, Rock Falls, Rockford, and South Elgin—with a, "modern, vibrant store, meeting space for staff, and increased visibility and convenience for families and volunteers."
GSNI CEO Fiona Cummings said the organization is, "excited to invest in Oswego, since we’ve seen how the population is growing, and the community is thriving!”
The new location near the corner of Route 34 and Orchard Road is near major retailers, like Jewel, and is about 2,300 square feet.
