We are not required to be quarantined in our homes in Addison, Texas at this time, but many of us are sheltering in place, nonetheless. If we do venture out for groceries, what we're looking for may not be available on the grocery shelves. All Addison restaurants are closed for dining in, but many still have employees cooking in the kitchens. Some restaurants are offering take-out and delivery services, some have drive-thrus and curbside pickup. A few restaurants have closed until further notice. Here's a link to special offers, promotions, and closings for Addison restaurants. And here's a link to grocery stores in and around Addison, some having special hours for seniors to shop. Please support our local restaurants - we want them to survive and be ready for us when we return in drove...
