It's Thanksgiving week, and Tinley Park Patch will be preparing you for the holiday, as well as the shopping season that follows it (or in some cases, during it).
Here are some of the things readers can expect to see in the next few days to help them navigate this busy week in Tinley Park a little more easily:
- What grocery stores—such as Eurofresh Market—will have Thanksgiving Day hours?
- Is your favorite local restaurant serving dinner on the holiday like Luby's Pub and Steakhouse?
- What bars have specials on Black Wednesday, the night before Thanksgiving and one of the busiest nights of the year for drinking establishments?
- How does Thanksgiving affect your trash pickup and other municipal services?
- Where should you go locally for the best sales, deals and special events businesses are running for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and the entire holiday weekend?
We start things off by spotlighting 30 of Tinley Park's small and independently owned businesses—listed in alphabetical order and with links to their Patch directory listings—that do a great job of keeping their customers informed about what's going on at their shops and restaurants.
