GETTING CAUGHT

TEMPORARILY CLOSED - The Outpost was shut down Wednesday at the state's liquor commission after it defied orders of Gov. J.B. Pritzker (Woodford County Journal/Mark Barra).

EUREKA - The Outpost, located at 1200 South Main St., was shut down on Wednesday by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission. It opened this past  Friday in lieu of changes with some businesses that followed the order of Gov. J.B. Pritzker and others who defied it, including The Outpost. The liquor store will remain open along with the kitchen for carry-out orders.

The opening sparked a debate on Facebook that created a thread of opinions that both supported and chastised the business. Supporters cited economic interests and Constitutional rights, while opponents cited public health issues and employee safety. Those opinions were echoed by some public officials who expressed empathy for the economic interests of businesses, but also concerns for public safety.
