We’ve got great things in store for you!

Charm and convenience make Park Ridge a great place to shop.  One-of-a-kind boutiques,  family-owned restaurants,  famous-name specialty stores and popular chain dining spots are all here in a variety of comfortable settings, from classic, walkable Uptown and South Park to convenient Village Green and Higgins Corridor areas. Professionals (dentists, doctors, etc.) and service retailers (hair salons, day spas and more) are also plentiful in Park Ridge, and so are business-to-business services.  Park Ridge has a healthy household income but we’re smart shoppers – and we shop locally first!

The Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce, founded in 1929, is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to:

  • provide leadership and support to our community's business, professional and service organizations
  • promote local shopping
  • strengthen local businesses to enhance the quality of life in our community.

For more information on why to join, where to shop and much more, please explore this website designed for both businesses and consumers.
