Please enjoy the Buffalo Grove Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Community Guide. The Community Guide is your best source for pertinent information about our villages, park districts, libraries, schools, and places of worship, legislators, local organizations, our chamber members, and so much more.

Buffalo Grove and Lincolnshire have so much to offer both their residents and visitors. Both villages are nationally ranked among the best places to live and raise a family. The communities have excellent reputations for safety, convenience to mass transit, and feature some of the finest schools in the State of Illinois. Both our communities are nationally ranked for safety, access to high quality education, and housing affordability.

As the Chamber of Commerce for these two vibrant communities, we are proud of our members and the contribution they make to these communities and their residents. Our members offer a wide array of products and services to consumers making Buffalo Grove and Lincolnshire prime shopping, dining and entertainment destinations. As you peruse this guide, we believe you will be impressed with the breadth and depth of products and services available to local consumers and visitors.

The Chamber strives to provide assistance for businesses to start, grow and flourish. We are very proud of our close ties to the local communities and government officials. We participate in community events like Buffalo Grove Days and Red, White & Boom plus various other events. We also sponsor grand openings and ribbon cuttings for new businesses, and business after hours for local business people to meet and network together. We also sponsor social events like bowling night and trivia night where members of the Chamber and community can come and have fun while networking together. Finally, we provide educational opportunities to our villages, local businesses and our members, such as the Executive Education Series which began in June of 2018.

We are proud of where we live, and we hope you share those same feelings. The Chamber encourages you to shop locally. You can help our local businesses through your patronage and keep tax dollars in our communities. Shopping locally will enhance our communities, support our schools your children attend, and provide for ongoing growth and prosperity of these communities. In turn, shopping locally will help enhance our villages making them the best possible place to raise your family and maximize your life experience.

This Community Guide provides you with a wealth of vital information about Buffalo Grove and Lincolnshire. We hope you find it a useful reference tool. Be sure to visit our website at www.bglcc.org throughout the year to stay informed on our Chamber events and news about the local businesses. You can find it all within our community guide and our website. Thank you for your continued support!
