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.

Park Ridge, a great place to shop

View a Map of Local Shops

Did you know - when you shop with local merchants, more of your money stays close to home; supporting the parks, recreation centers, libraries and other things that make this community a great place to live. Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally and in our community, provide the most jobs to residents. Park Ridge is located 14 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, in a key geographic location close to O'Hare Airport, major expressways and rail transportation. It has a strong small-town, hometown charm, with cupolas, church spires and the 100-foot tower of the historic Art Deco Pickwick Theatre defining its unique skyline.
