Welcome to Downtown Bartlett
|Like many communities, Bartlett's downtown is the heart of the community. Village Hall, a Metra commuter station, the Chamber of Commerce, the Bartlett Center for the Arts, the U.S. Post Office, the Bartlett Depot Museum and a unique variety of dining, shopping and personal service businesses are all located in a walkable, safe environment where the Village first began more than 125 years ago.|
The Shoppes of Banbury Fair is the 30-plus-year anchor of the downtown business district, featuring a wide variety of products and services. It carries women's clothing and accessories, baby gifts and home decor, and offers numerous classes and events throughout the year. Other downtown retailers include Ace Hardware, CVS Pharmacy, Spin Doctor Cyclewerks, Book Lady's Book Attic and another long-time anchor, the Bartlett Coin Shop.
