Shopping at an Oak Park business this holiday season helps strengthen the local economy and reduces the community’s carbon footprint by reducing travel distances. Retail sales benefit not only local retailers, but the entire Village since 2 percent of every retail sale comes back to municipal coffers to fund vital public services. For many retailers, the holiday season is the most important time of the year.
