North Riverside is not only a great place to live, it’s also a great place for businesses to call home. North Riverside's 2.5 square miles is home to some of Chicagoland's best-known retailers, such as Costco, Joe Rizza Ford, Castle Pontiac-Buick-GMC, Best Buy, h.h. gregg, Kohl’s, and the North Riverside Park Mall. The Mall employs hundreds of area residents in its stores and includes notable anchors such as Sears, JC Penney and Carson Pirie Scott. Also located within the North Riverside Park Mall is a 7 screen Cineplex owned and operated by Classic Cinemas.
Other retail giants in the area include Toys-R-Us, Sports Authority, Burlington Coat Factory, Old Navy, Jewel Food Store, and Tony's Finer Foods. These businesses, combined with smaller specialty stores, not only provide countless employment opportunities, but also round out the myriad of one-stop shopping options available in town. North Riverside's close proximity to major thoroughfares and highways make it accessible to the City of Chicago and outlying suburbs.
