Help Support Your Local Businesses During L Construction

Dalia Food Mart at Leland and Broadway
With Broadway closed in one or both directions; Leland closed at Broadway; and occasional closures of Wilson west of Broadway, it's a rough time for local businesses who depend on foot traffic and their customers being able to park. We all look forward to having better L tracks, a faster commute, and a handicapped-accessible station, but no one can claim that the construction period is easy.

Please make it a point to try to shop at these businesses during the construction period. They need customer support more than ever.  These are the locally owned businesses on the 4600 block of Broadway and 1100 block of Wilson who are trying to conduct business as usual with work zones out front:

  • Afrikiko Hair and Fashion Boutique, 4659 North Broadway
  • Dalia Food Market, 4661 North Broadway
  • Elim Wigs & Beauty Supply, 4631 North Broadway
  • 42 grams, 4662 North Broadway
  • Gigio's Pizza, 4643 North Broadway
  • Hing Wang, 1120 West Wilson
  • Iyanze, 4623 North Broadway
  • Liberty Tax Service, 1126 West Wilson
  • Palla's Grill, 4570 North Broadway
  • Robby's Communications, 1128 West Wilson
  • Spoil Me Salon & Spa, 4668 North Broadway
  • Thai Uptown, 4621 North Broadway
  • Uptown Ace Hardware, 4654 North Broadway
  • Uptown Bikes, 4653 North Broadway
