35 Facebook Pages Elmhurst Residents Should 'Like'

Here are some of the most Elmhurst-centric business pages on Facebook.

Small Business Saturday 2012 is a memory, but the idea behind the movement is to keep those dollars close to home as much as possible. Often deals that rival those of the big box stores can be found at local businesses, but they're not always as easy to discover.

That's where Facebook comes in. Sometimes, local businesses post information on Facebook that you just can't find anywhere else—even on their company websites. Whether it's a last-minute special sale or an announcement about a visit from Santa, Facebook can be a source of information to help you make decisions on whether to visit a certain store or restaurant.

Below, we've listed the Facebook pages of 35 Elmhurst businesses that are great places to shop this holiday season. In addition to a number of retail stores, there are a few restaurants and specialty food shops, where you can have a quick bite while shopping or pick up a gift certificate for a stocking stuffer. We also list a few workout facilities—what could be better than the gift of health?—and there's even a place to drop your kids off so you can shop or attend a holiday party.

We chose Facebook pages that have a fairly wide following and are active, with recent status posts. Some of them are new businesses that already have become quite popular. We skipped the local stores that have a national Facebook page, like Kohl's, Kmart, Verizon.
