Whether you are a resident, a local business employee, or a visitor to Hickory Hills, we encourage you to “HEAD FOR THE HILLS FIRST” when it comes to shopping and buying products and services.
This business directory was compiled by community volunteers working with the Hickory Hills Economic Development Committee and The Hills Chamber of Commerce.
We encourage you to retain this directory and refer to it first … before you go shopping.
Hickory Hills residents are especially encouraged to patronize our local business community to support it and the significant contributions it makes to our quality of life and our local economy.
WHY SHOP AND BUY IN HICKORY HILLS FIRST?
VARIETY, VALUE, CONVENIENCE … AND … LOWER SALES TAXES
Hickory Hills local entrepreneurs and members of the Hills Chamber of Commerce offer a wide variety of products and services which consumers and business owners need or desire. They are nearby and competitively priced.
Of course, everyone should shop and buy based on value and price. However … when calculating the true costs of what you want … don’t forget to include the costs in time, aggravation and fuel spent in traveling a distance to save a buck or two. Likewise, Hickory Hills sales taxes are often lower than those elsewhere.
When you add it all up … it pays to … HEAD FOR THE HILLS!
