Behind every storefront, there’s a story.
Think about the local shops and restaurants you’ve missed most – the places and people that have become part of your life. Like the barista who knows you by name. The restaurant where you celebrate every family birthday. The boutique owner who always has time to chat and give treats to your dog. These businesses are what make Hyde Park Village feel like home, and the sense of connection they bring feels more valuable than ever.
Now, as they reopen their doors, we’re highlighting some of our neighbors through a new series, #storefrontstories. Through photos and interviews, we’re showcasing and celebrating the people behind the businesses you love, who have persevered through uncertain times and continue to make Hyde Park Village so special.
Watch the stories unfold on Instagram and get excited to return to your favorites. Want to see a certain business featured? Let us know!
