Chamber of Commerce

Plenty of Variety Close at Hand

Galesburg has remained an important commercial center, drawing its customers from the surrounding region. Today, you will find a satisfying variety of shops to choose among, from the fashionable, national-name stores to bargain hunters’ favorite discount outlets and the charming specialty shops of historic Seminary Street and downtown Galesburg. New stores continue to open and new buildings go up, both on Main Street, in the heart of the city’s downtown, and on Henderson Street, the neon-lined “strip” that hums with traffic well into the night.

Chamber of Commerce

Galesburg’s forward-looking Chamber of Commerce & Downtown Council, its active merchants’ associations and its dedicated historic preservation groups have combined to sustain growth in retail activity while maintaining a vital downtown core.
