For Businesses


Waukegan Is Open For Business!

Are you looking to open a new business in downtown Waukegan?  Welcome!

Waukegan Main Street works with new business owners to publicize your new venture and get customers through your door. We help arrange official ribbon cuttings; offer ad space in our kiosks; provide matching funds for new signs, lighting and awnings; and list your business – and your special events –  in our weekly email calendar which goes to nearly 2500 unique addresses.  Become a Waukegan Main Street business partner and engage in our downtown area!

As you are in your planning phase, visit the City of Waukegan’s website which offers a list of new business resources.
