Best stores for fish/plants in south burbs

I'm coming back to planted tanks after a couple years off...what are some good stores for plants/fish these days ? I went to AA in Bolingbrook and was a little underwhelmed. I used to frequent Scotts, but I know that's closed now.

Any good places in the will county/Orland park area ?

Not really in South Suburbs but worth a trip out to Aquatic Adventure in Hoffman Estates in the Northwest Suburbs

Just over a year of racking my brain on how to improve my 29 gallon Marineland Planted Aquarium with Fish.
