HELP SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES. Governor Pritzker has issued an Executive Order suspending operations of all bars and restaurants in Illinois. We encourage you to continue to support these local businesses by utilizing curb-side pick-up, delivery or drive-thru where available.
Here are some tips from the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce to help our local businesses during these difficult times:
GIVE THE GIFT OF BUSINESS – If you typically frequent a business, buy a gift card that covers your usual patronage. Then spread out the use of the gift card over time. In addition, give one as a gift to someone that might not normally shop there.
KEEP YOUR SUBSCRIPTION/MEMBERSHIP – Many small businesses rely on your support to keep their doors open. If you have a subscription or membership to a gym, exercise class, music lessons, dance academy, etc. – pay and keep them current. Your subscription could save a business.
BUY NOW PICK UP LATER – If you planned on buying a manufactured product like a guitar, clothing, or specialized good – call instead and buy it, have them set it aside, and pick it up later. Shopping local businesses online is a great option as well.
