Peace Love & Light

Very_large_peacelovelightheader
This holiday season, let’s keep the lights shining bright on Central Street. Let’s visit our local shops to gift from our hearts. Let’s double the impact of each and every gift we buy and invest in a local business. And in doing so, let’s share the peace, love and light on Central Street with everyone. Because if there was ever a year to bundle up, explore locally, and gift with an impact, this one is it.

In an effort to provide more time and space for you to shop, Central Street Evanston is hosting Small Business Saturdays every week through December and Late Night Thursdays in December. Central Street merchants are taking all precautions to provide safe shopping experiences, requiring masks at all times, limiting then number of customers in their stores, providing hand sanitizer, offering contactless payment and ramping up online shopping with local delivery and shipping.

In addition, Central Street Evanston created a Central Street Holiday Market on Facebook which features products or services from a variety of businesses. CLICK HERE to view the online market and note that it is just a sampling of items available at stores on Central Street.

If you prefer to shop during the week, the following businesse are staying open until 7pm on Thursdays to give you extra time and space to shop. After, grab a treat or takeout from one of Central Street's restaurants.
