It’s fun to shop and dine in Logan Square, thanks to the strong small business community. Exploring local businesses in the neighborhood will open your eyes and excite the senses. The diverse blend of new and established local businesses offers a growing variety of creative possibilities for shopping, dining and entertainment. There is a buzz—a vibe—to Logan Square like no other place. If you live here, or visited, you know what I mean. As the owner of a sustainable packaging business in Logan Square, I have the wonderful opportunity to connect with a lot of businesses, build friendships and collaborate with brilliantly creative entrepreneurs.
It’s All Here
I really enjoy running a small business in Logan Square. Businesses collaborate and support one another, residents are fanatically loyal, and the best products, restaurants and stores are here. Logan Square offers everything I need only a few blocks away.
From long-standing local establishments to top-rated restaurants and premium shopping to world-class culture and innovation, this neighborhood has it all. Did I mention the amazing Farmers Market too? You may never leave the neighborhood!
Slip Away From the Rat Race
We have a comfortable and welcoming office on Troy Street in a peaceful, tree-lined community. Working without typical rush-hour commuters and corporate stuffyness is refreshing. When it’s time to take a break or meet with a client, we have plenty of local cafes, restaurants and other meetup spots to have a meeting or work from a wi-fi connection. Step away, take a break from the rat race, and join the authentic and collaborative local businesses.
Working and living in Logan Square is a darned happy existence for me. And neighbors are supportive of local businesses. As one example, Distant Village paper, packaging and labels can be found throughout the neighborhood, including Katherine Anne Confections (@kachocolatier, 2745 W. Armitage Ave.), North Coast Organics (@NorCoastOrganic) and Dill Pickle Food Co-op (@dillpicklecoop, 3039 W. Fullerton Ave.), which carries fresh bags of Grinderman coffee that bear our 100% recycle-compatible stickers from PURE Labels (@purelabels).
Making Business Fun and Interesting
Every month, explore the inside track of local business with me. I will share my insights and real-life experiences in running a business, and you’ll have a first-hand view of how local businesses are growing through collaboration and creating a thriving local neighborhood like no other. There’s much more to come on Logan Square business collaborations in future posts. Next month I will share real local businesses experiences and wonderful collaborations within Logan Square.
