Default Quotes within mergefield text

I am trying to set up a paragraph with an "If" mergefield, but I'm
having trouble figuring out how to do it. The text I need to use
contains quotation marks. Because of those quotation marks, I don't get
all the text when the merge is run. In the example below, I've enclosed
"local" and "provided" in quotes. When I run the merge, the paragraph
cuts off at the first quotation within the paragraph.

{ IF { MERGEFIELD City } = "Chicago" "Please call our "local" office."
"Please return the enclosed form in the "provided" envelope." }

Is there a way to get this to work so I can apply it to my actual text?
I am not allowed to change the text, so I have to find a way to make it
work with the quotation marks.
