Shop Local this Holiday Season! 

The Clark Street team is so excited for the holiday season! The street really livens up with festivities and literally lights up! Plus there's a constant cheerfulness in the air throughout the final two months of the year. 

Once again the team at Clark Street in Lincoln Park is reminded of the importance to shop local on Small Business Saturday. The annual event to shop small falls on Saturday, November 26 and  while we have a variety of businesses on Clark Street and Diversey Parkway, both small and large, we are excited to rally and  shop at our local businesses on Small Business Saturday and all through the holiday season. 

Shopping small and supporting local business, helps to keep money right here in our community, it supports local jobs, and gives you the opportunity to personally interact with your neighborhood shop owners.  Stay tuned to VisitClarkStreet.com this holiday season for your guide to holiday shopping, specials, events, and festivities along the Clark Street in Lincoln Park corridor!
