Berwyn Shops: A Homegrown Project

Berwyn Shops is a retail incubator for the City of Berwyn designed to support emerging entrepreneurs, artisans, and makers who are committed to taking their businesses to the next level. It will be located at 6931 Roosevelt Road in Berwyn, IL, and will feature twelve 12'x15' cottage-style shops. During the inaugural 2022 season, the shops will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from June to mid-December. 

The participating shop vendors will be selected by a jury committee of 13 community volunteers, including Roosevelt Road business owners, local stakeholders, Berwyn residents, and prospective clients of the Berwyn Shops. 


However, this homegrown project would not be possible without our Community Partners. Community Partners will be providing education, resources, and financial support for the Berwyn Shops. If you would like to partner with the BDC and the City of Berwyn, follow the link below!

Vendor Success Stories

Elevate Together Grant 


Flores by Alba Mendez 

“A lot of people don’t have a team, I see a lot of my friends that are single and don’t have that support from their families. I feel that this should push you to find a community of like-minded individuals. I've met a lot of friends who I didn't even know a year ago and a lot of times those are your biggest supporters, strangers, instead of your own family. So don't even worry if your family doesn't support you because most likely it will be a stranger that purchases your merchandise or services," she says.
