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!

Park Ridge, a great place to shop

View a Map of Local Shops

When you buy from local stores, professional service firms, and restaurants, more of your money stays close to home; supporting the parks, recreation centers, libraries and other amenities that make Park Ridge a great place to live. Small or large, local businesses also strengthen the community by providing employment to people in our area.  If you're looking to relocate your business, Park Ridge is ideally located 14 miles northwest of downtown Chicago and close to O'Hare Airport, major expressways, CTA and Metra trains. One of the most desirable northwest suburban communities, Park Ridge is a safe, well managed, forward-looking City with good schools, parks and recreational facilities. It also offers historic hometown charm and many active, enthusiastic volunteer organizations -- including the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce which also supports the Park Ridge Community Fund. Come for a visit and see why it's a wonderful place to live and work!
