So what is this whole pantry concept thingy anyway? Pantry options are new school stores (powered by our forward-thinking restaurants) where customers (you and I) can shop for groceries and specialty products, even ingredients in everyday package sizes. For example, a single box of specialty dry rub that cannot be found anywhere else. These restaurants have more direct channels and relationships to such local farms and butchers over us. Items that are normally cost prohibitive to ship individually have been technology enriched usually with e-commerce platforms to distribute more directly to us via their platforms. It is a WIN-WIN!
With Illinois’s stay-at-home order, La Grange businesses and restaurants have stepped up with these new mini markets. In addition to made-to-order takeout and delivery items, there are home cooking staples, specialized ingredients, cuts of reserve meat, and vegetables straight from local farms. Here are some of the hot spots where we can stock up via La Grange small business landscape pantry and butcher shops.
