Central Street Evanston presents its semi-annual “Retail Therapy Night,” a tradition for a decade. This spring renewal will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on March 27. There will be special discounts, raffles, refreshments and giveaways from participating businesses. The participating businesses are all located just west of Green Bay Road, in the 1800-2100 blocks of Central Street.

Retail Therapy is a Ladies Night Out Shopping event that takes place each fall and spring and is a thank- you to the loyal customers who shop Central Street, Evanston. The retailers and businesses on Central Street have instituted a SHOP SMALL STORES Campaign that has been very successful and has brought an awareness of shopping local and investing in one’s own community.
