The Chamber of Commerce in Lincoln Square, however, says they are looking for ways to stop businesses from closing for good.
Executive Director of the Lincoln Square/Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce Rudy Flores says one of their strategies is to encourage people to spend their money at locally owned businesses.
