Popcorn shop planned on Sherman


A franchise of what's billed as the largest retailer of popcorn in the world plans to open next to the Cold Stone Cremery on Sherman Avenue in Evanston.

A city report says the Doc Popcorn shop is seeking a special use permit to open in the former Diadem Jewelers location at 1613 Sherman Ave.

The proposal is scheduled to be reviewed by the Zoning Board of Appeals at a meeting on Sept. 2.

The company's nearest existing locations are at the Des Plaines and Lake Forest tollway oases and at the Gurnee Mills mall.
