What's Closed or Delayed

By now, you know that schools serving Tinley Park have closed for a second day. Patch also will keep track of some of the businesses and other institutions, such as the Tinley Park Public Library, in the village that will be closed or have abbreviated hours because of the weather Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Plow-Damaged Mailboxes

Was your mailbox damaged by a snow plow during or after this past weekend's snowfall? If so, contact the village at 708-444-5000 to report it.

Make sure to secure the box in the meantime so that it can still receive mail delivery.

Empty Shelves and Gas Pumps?

Some area stores and gas stations have been low on stock and fuel caused by customers stocking up before the storm and supply trucks being delayed because of the weather.

Tell us in the comments section what businesses you've been to that are out of what they're selling.
