Supporting Local Businesses During COVID19

In an effort to support Lombard businesses, the Village is happy to announce that we have compiled information regarding open businesses into an interactive map, available at www.villageoflombard.org/shoplocalmap. When making a purchase, we ask that you please consider ordering from a local business.

As of May 1, all non-essential retail stores are able to reopen to fulfil online or phone orders through convenient curbside pickup or delivery. This includes many shops in Yorktown Shopping Center! Find out how you can shop online and pick-up curbside at www.yorktowncenter.com/clicks-to-curbside. Additionally, many Lombard restaurants remain open, offering food for pickup or delivery. We will get through this together Lombard!

You cannot dine-in at any restaurant. Food and beverages must be consumed off-premises.

You can order food from your favorite restaurants! You can pick-up the food yourself or via curbside. The restaurant or a third-party can deliver the food to you. Drive-throughs are also allowed. Additionally, you can purchase gift cards to use later. If you pick-up food please remember the CDC recommends social distancing of at least six feet (6’). If you are a restaurant owner/manager please ensure your customers and staff are practicing social distancing.

Many local establishments are posting how they will continue to operate drive-up or drive-thru service in compliance with this directive. Residents are encouraged to connect with individual locations and support local Lombard businesses where practicable. To help connect residents with local businesses, the Village of Lombard has created the interactive local business map available at www.villageoflombard.org/shoplocalmap.  Lombard Chamber of Commerce created a Facebook page: www.facebook.com/LombardTakeOut
