Bars and Restaurants
Governor Pritzker has issued an executive order that all bars and restaurants in the state close to dine-in customers beginning March 16, and continuing through March 30. This has been done for your safety in order to limit close gatherings of large numbers of people.  We are very aware of the impact that this will cause both operationally and financially to our local businesses. We will do everything we can to support our businesses during this time.  We urge those who can patronize our businesses through take-out or delivery to continue to do so.

Grocery Stores
Grocery and liquor stores are still open and operational. Food is available and grocers have assured us that supplies continue to be delivered to our stores. Please buy what you need but remember your neighbors and be a good citizen by not over-buying.
We will continue to monitor developments and will keep you informed of any changes. We are always ready to serve you online!
Thank you for your continued support. Stay healthy!
