Whether it’s one-of-a-kind wares or popular must-have items that you seek, Bloomingdale is where customers want to open their wallets. The village is home to an array of shopping destinations – from cozy, independent boutiques to more than 100 well-known department stores and shops that pepper Stratford Square.
The 1.3-million-square-foot Stratford shopping center boasts about 125 stores and a variety of dining options, including two full-service restaurants.
The biggest project underway is 25 West Brewing Co., which is under construction and slated to open in summer 2018. The facility will feature a full restaurant and state-of-the-art brew house.
Newer storefronts include Wild One Harley-Davidson, which offers clothing, merchandise, motorcycle rentals and a rider’s academy. Also on the tenant roster is Gloria Jean’s – a favorite that has returned to Stratford Square.
All year long, Stratford Square offers a variety of seasonal events, such as a popular monthly car show in the summer. There’s also a slew of holiday events, such as pet photos with Santa, a craft fair and an egg hunt throughout the mall with the Easter Bunny.
Other retail gems around town include Annie Occasion for Any Occasion, at 148 S. Bloomingdale Road in Old Town Commons. The shop offers comprehensive wedding planning services from start to finish to create personalized, spectacular events of a lifetime.
Another fun stop for unique finds is Fruitful Yield Health Foods, at 366 Army Trail Rd. in Bloomingdale Court. Family owned since 1968, Fruitful Yield prides itself in selling products free of GMOs, petroleum by-products and artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners and flavors.
