The Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce (PACC) is hosting the 2nd annual 'Explore Palatine' event Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019. This village-wide event encourages area residents to think local as they shop, explore, and dine in Palatine on this one-day event, and whenever possible.

Palatine-based businesses, as well as members of the Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce will be offering incentives to explore any of the locations, and a variety of discounts, giveaways and entertainment will be provided; for a complete list participating businesses and offers, visit


"Palatine area residents are invited to support the Palatine community; the goal of initiative is to help everyone understand the positive impact this type of effort can have on the Village," said PACC Director Steven Gaus. "By putting this spotlight on our treasured businesses and organizations, we are all working together to strengthen the entire community."

Sales tax dollars generated from Palatine businesses have a direct impact on the community; $48 of a $100 purchase stays in Palatine when individuals shop at an independent and/or small business, while $14 stays in Palatine when patronizing larger/regional businesses located in Palatine - but just $1 stays in Palatine when people shop online.

Explore Palatine is an outgrowth of PACC's 'Think Local' campaign. It is free, and open to all Palatine businesses (chamber of commerce members or not).

Any business located in Palatine can register at no cost at through September 9. For PACC members who are located outside of Palatine village limits, but would like to participate, please contact PACC Executive Director Steven Gaus at 847-359-7200.
