PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — A handful of retail stores in Peoria’s Shoppes of Grand Prairie are open and offering curbside pickup.
Others in the midst of preparing to open under phase three of the governor’s Restore Illinois plan.
The Shoppes of Grand Prairie said Wednesday, tenants will have the option to open Friday, May 29.
“A good amount of them will open between the May 29 – June 1,” said Marketing & Specialty Leasing Manager Megan Otto. “So we’re going to try to keep everyone informed about what’s going to happen.”
The leasing manager said individual retailers will have their own restrictions and guidelines to follow from parent companies.
“For some of the smaller it may just be 10 people allowed in at a time,” said Otto. “For some of the larger ones, arrows on the floor like we’ve seen in grocery stores.”
Another retail industry also staying open. Jones Brother’s Jewelers in Peoria said it’s keeping employees paid and working despite COVID-19 uncertainties. The owner, Bob Woolsey, said his team is offering curbside pickup, appointments, and is ready for in-store shopping.
“We’re set up for it,” said Woolsey. “The cases they open up so if you were concerned, it’s easy to shop on your own.”
Woolsey said cleanliness and comfort are top priorities for them and for shoppers ready to help local businesses survive.
“In the whole scheme of things, there is a lot of support in this community for local and now it’s way more important than ever,” said Woolsey. “I can guarantee that the local businesses will be safer, number one, and will be grateful that you’ve come in.”
