Business Matters

IMG_3502

For a town with a population hovering just above 11,000 according to the 2010 Census, River Forest is fortunate to have a healthy selection of businesses and services.  We have four banks, eight eating establishments, seven retail shops, and soon we will have three major grocery stores — not bad for a village that has a total area of 2.48 square miles.  Below please find an evolving list of local businesses. Please contact RF Community Matters if you believe a business was inadvertently missed and needs to be added.

It’s always meaningful to shop local.
