There are staffing issues  and no one knows for sure if the new regime will finance a staff for the store at a time when they are cutting staffed stations. 

 

Stay tuned.

They say laughter is the best medicine. Obviously they never posted on AU.

I stopped by Chicago Union Station at lunch and talked to an employee. The store was open yesterday, but closed today because the employee "went out on the road". There should be another employee to operate the store in a day or two. The store hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Thanks for the update! I’m making a day trip to Chicago to check it out, May 24!
