It’s important to support local, “brick and mortar” shops and businesses because a healthy downtown creates a sense of pride and fosters a stable, ever-improving community. For every $100 spent in Wheaton’s locally-owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. This cycle results in a stronger community for its members to enjoy. When you shop online or at chain retailers, nothing goes into your community.

The Downtown Wheaton Association invites you to come out and enjoy our community’s shops, services, restaurants and events today!
