A Message from the Chestnut Hill Business District

“During this time of uncertainty and concern regarding the coronavirus, the Chestnut Hill Business District would like to reassure its customers about measures being taken to promote public safety and ways that you can continue to support our small businesses with confidence. Small businesses and their employees are especially sensitive to the economic instability that accompanies such occurrences, and we ask that our customers continue to patronize  local businesses as conditions permit. In order to protect customers who need to visit essential stores in person, Chestnut Hill businesses have adopted a variety of enhanced sanitary measures, including frequent cleaning of public contact areas, making hand sanitizer available to customers, and implementing more rigorous employee hand-washing standards.  If you are visiting Chestnut Hill, remember that you can also pay for parking both at City meters and Chestnut Hill Parking Foundation lots electronically on your phone by using the convenient MeterUp or ParkMobile apps.

For businesses who are not permitted to remain open or who have chosen to close voluntarily, we encourage customers to view the list below. Many businesses are offering special online shopping and delivery options to accommodate these necessary restrictions and allow their customers to order meals and merchandise from the comfort of their homes.  While restaurants are currently not permitted to serve dine-in patrons, many establishments are offering convenient curbside pick-up, delivery, and app-based services which make it possible to purchase your favorite local dishes.  A list of participating establishments, as well as a directory with complete contact information for all our member businesses, can be found on this website.

Thank you to our customers and member merchants for all they are doing to keep Chestnut Hill in business during this challenging time.”

–Philip Dawson, Executive Director, Chestnut Hill Business District
