What makes Glenside home? Where we shop, where we eat and even where we have fun! The experiences you enjoy at our neighborhood businesses and the public spots around them build relationships and our sense of community. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of Glenside!!
Strengthen Your Local Economy
Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain ( almost 50 times more than buying from an online mega-retailer!!) — a benefit we all can bank on.
Not only do independent businesses employ more people directly, they also are the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, attorneys and so forth. This further expands opportunities for local entrepreneurs.
Maintain Community Uniqueness & Character
Our flavor comes from our local businesses. All across our country there are chain restaurants and department stores but that one small shop down the street that you LOVE is one-of-a-kind!! Combined, our town's local businesses make is stand out from every other city in the world. By supporting our local shops, we ensure our uniqueness is preserved!
