Chicago is a thriving city for small businesses and now is the time to support them. We know money is tight and it’s become increasingly difficult to keep up. But, if you have the income, consider ordering take out or getting a book from your local bookstore. We also want to continue to highlight and support minority and women-owned businesses. Here at 606 Movers, we are absolutely inspired by the creativity and resilience of some of these businesses. We hope we can all make it through to the other side of this stronger than before.
Below are some of our favorites!
