Welcome to Wilmette-onomics!

Wilmette-onomics…it pays to shop locally.

There are a million reasons why people love Wilmette. The people, the schools, the downtown, the beach. If you live here, you love it and you know it’s special. By supporting Wilmette businesses you help to support those things you love about Wilmette. The dollars you spend locally are invested back into the community.

When you choose to shop at your favorite local businesses, 2% of each retail purchase made in Wilmette comes directly back to the Village. In 2018 $4.8 million were reinvested back into Wilmette. Every dollar you spend locally adds up to a better Wilmette. Remember, it pays to shop locally.
