12 Days to Shop Small Business in Chicago

12 Days to Shop Small Business in Chicago
Our go-to restaurant, Que Rico (beautiful lights in front)

As small businesses grapple with the pandemic shutdown and restrictions, customers, business owners and team members still spark joy and hope. As Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel wrote, Even in darkness it is possible to create light and encourage compassion.” Thanks to a few of our favorite local Chicago businesses who inspire hope. Many are women and minority owned businesses. They offer mail order and curbside service.

Made with Love

Made with Love

As our world continues to reset and adjust with less resources, we may pause and think where to shop. Thanks to small business owners who warm our hearts with their care and attention. They epitomize one of Maya Angelou's sentiments. “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
