NAPERVILLE, Ill. (WLS) — A coalition of mayors from DuPage County have written a letter to Governor JB Pritzker asking to be exempted from the extended stay-at-home order and reopen businesses.

There’s a skeleton crew staffing the chef-owned restaurant Allegory In Naperville, running the place on bare bones.

“Sales are down 75 to 80 percent depending on the week,” said chef and owner Chris Mason.

They’ve kept the burners lit and the doors somewhat open through the unsteady pace of curbside pickup. But it’s not nearly enough.

“We’ve been devastated to the point where this is not a solvent business model,” Mason said. “It’s not how it was supposed to be.”
