Maxon’s Gun Shop, Range Coming To DuPage County?

The last time I blogged about Maxon Shooter’s Supplies and Indoor Range in the near-northwest suburb of Des Plaines, I was congratulating them back in February 2015 on receiving a prestigious Five Star rating from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

These days, Maxon’s is in the local news for their proposed expansion into DuPage County, Illinois. Erin Hegarty reported on the Chicago Tribune website on November 23:

Preliminary plans have been proposed for an indoor shooting range and gun shop in Warrenville, just across the street from Naperville on Ferry Road.

Naperville resident Dan Eldridge already owns the Maxon Shooter’s Supplies and Indoor Range in Des Plaines. Building a second location in Warrenville was a necessity because he needs more classroom space, he said, but it will also fill a void for this type of business in the western suburbs.

“This would allow us to grow in an underserved area in Chicagoland,” Eldridge said.

The new location on 7-plus acres at 30W255 Ferry Road will serve residents in Warrenville, Naperville and Aurora – a market that lacks facilities for shooting classes and practice ranges, he said. Its proximity to Route 59 and Interstate 88 will allow them to attract shooting enthusiasts from as far as 20 to 30 miles away, he said…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

According to Hegarty, Maxon’s owner figures the new facility would employ about 25 full- and part-time workers.
