Shop Wilmette Campaign
Since 2006 the Village Board has committed significant funds towards promoting and supporting the Village’s local businesses. In 2016 this trend continued when the Village Board approved $20,000 for business promotions.
In years past, campaigns included “Shop Wilmette” advertisements in the Wilmette Life and Village newsletters, which encouraged residents to support their local businesses. The campaign has expanded to include advertising in the Chicago Tribune, on Pace buses, and on Comcast Cable.
With the Village Board’s support, this year's campiagn continues with much of the same advertising plus new street pole banners for its shopping districts. If you would like to know more about the campaign or how to join the co-op program, please contact the Village’s Business Development Planner.
