Herman H. Hann's grocery store was progressive, selling fine foods and fancy groceries.

Provisions were sold to locals at Damman’s Grocery Store, located at Franklin and Harlem, now the parking lot for ATI, back in the 1880s.  One of the earliest settlers of Harlem, Herman Hann, could be found as a clerk around this time.  Herman would go on to open his own grocery store at DesPlaines and Madison.  His store, Herman H Hann, was said to sell fine groceries and fancy meats.
