Dear Neighbors – There are indications that COVID-19 will be here for some time. Please consider reaching out and offering help to your elderly neighbors. Older people and people with severe chronic conditions are at considerably higher risk of developing serious illness from the virus. You can offer to buy supplies or help them set up a grocery delivery service. If you are feeling ill, stay home and call your doctor for advice.
For a safer shopping environment, these stores have set up senior-only hours:
Whole Foods: Customers age 60 and older can shop daily an hour before stores open to the general public. So if a store opens at 9 a.m., for example, seniors have access at 8 a.m.
Target: The first hour of shopping each Wednesday is reserved for the elderly and other vulnerable populations, such as those with compromised immune systems.
Jewel-Osco: Senior shoppers are being given priority on from 7-9 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Mariano’s: The grocer has set aside two hours daily — 6 to 8 a.m. — for seniors and those with underlying health conditions.
Walmart: Customers ages 60 and older can shop every Tuesday an hour before stores open. Walmart pharmacies and vision centers will also be open during this time. Starting Tuesday, March 24 through April 28.
Tony’s Fresh Market: Senior priority shopping hours are in effect 7-9 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Beginning Tuesday, March 24.
Since 1924 the Sauganash Community Association has worked to advance the interests of our northwestern corner of Chicago and to ensure our neighborhood always remains a vibrant and wonderful place to live.
We actively work to represent the wishes of our neighbors for issues like O’Hare noise and zoning as well as other affairs that come up from time to time.
We also engage in beautification projects for the neighborhood, we provide snow plowing and mosquito spraying, and we organize three events annually: a 4th of July parade and picnic, a special SCA members’ party, and a 5K run.
