*** COVID-19 UPDATE ***

Dear Customers & Friends,

Restaurants, bars, and eateries are closed for dining in, per State of Illinois directive. Many are offering curb side pickup and/or delivery.

Most retail stores and services voluntarily closed in mid-March to comply with measures to flatten the curve. Under the recent Stay at Home order, beginning on May 1, non-essential retail businesses can reopen for curbside pickup and delivery. Please contact businesses individually to find out their status and the best way to shop: online, over the phone or email.  

Please note: we are in the process of transitioning web sites and will NO LONGER update this page. For the most current updates on Central Street and its businesses, please click on the links below:


Thank you for your continued support of our local businesses!
