Phase 4 is here and there are many unique things to do around town. We chose our #3 item this month as a reminder to please continue to shop local in the ways that work best for you and your family. If you're not comfortable with heading out just yet, shop online locally or range for take-out or delivery. If you are ready to venture out, don't forget your mask....and your camera. This is a time in history that absolutely should be photographed. #makingmemories

3. Support Local
WEST SUBURBAN CHICAGO–As Gov. JB Pritzker announced Phase 4 of his Restore Illinois Plan, businesses and restaurants throughout the western suburbs felt some relief.
