Restaurants can now have more space for outdoor eating by using the sidewalks. “I would love to continue to do so at least something like this, whether it’s out front or out back and just continue to be able to have this opportunity for people to enjoy the outdoors,” said Lyndsey Knauer, with Walk On Bar and Grill. “When we were able to get this patio program off the ground, it was so great because we had a whole new way to form revenue in the downtown area,” said Brian Ladau, with Skal Public House.
“I think 2021 summer and fall retail is going to be fabulous. That’s my prediction,” said Janelle Holmstrom, owner of Isaac’s Antiques and Jangle Natural Living. Four or five businesses have closed since the pandemic started, but 10 new ones have opened since last summer and more are on the way.
The new owners are celebrating with a grand opening weekend event, just as the village’s Streetery program returned for another season. “We already have an e-commerce business. And we just thought it was a tremendous opportunity to get closer to the customers to open up a retail store,” Gemplers owner Carl Atwell said.
