ELMHURST, IL — The coronavirus is having a profound impact on the global economy, and has been particularly damaging to Elmhurst businesses that depend on foot traffic and in-person interactions with their customers. Even so, many businesses have found ways to stay open and to offer delivery, pick-up and safe-distance transactions to serve the community.
We put a call out to local businesses on Patch last week and asked them to update their status, give details on how you can continue to patronize them and to let the community know how they can best help during these challenging times. You can find the local guide here.
If you own a local business and have not yet updated your status, you can find a simple submission form here or simply scroll down to the bottom of this article.
We’re going to keep this guide live throughout the impact of the coronavirus, to help our readers support the businesses that serve Elmhurst. Businesses can update their status in the guide at any time. To help support our local merchants and business owners, we encourage you to share this article or the link to the guide with neighbors, via email and social media. The businesses need our support.
Patch will be rolling out a number of new initiatives and resources to help local business owners in the coming days, so stay tuned and please stay safe.
