Lisle is a terrific location for retailers and is home to many retail businesses that have enjoyed a successful Lisle location for decades.

Downtown Retail & Restaurant Opportunities
Downtown Lisle is undergoing major redevelopment, which has transformed it into a pedestrian friendly retail and restaurant district. A prairie style streetscape encourages people to stroll past unique shops, dine in 1 of several unique restaurants or simply relax in front of The Garden Walk's nature themed fountain where turtles, frogs and cranes spout streams of water. Each Saturday morning, the French Market transforms the downtown into a colorful open-air market filled with fun conversation and 1-of-a-kind treasures.

Currently, opportunities exist for unique, boutique like stores, wine shops, artisans and quality restaurants in Downtown Lisle. Nature focused or sustainable businesses and restaurants that reflect the village’s brand, “The Arboretum village,” are particularly well positioned for the downtown.
