Chamber Welcome

Welcome residents and visitors to the eighth annual Village of Gurnee Community Guide. This guide is brought to you by The Village of Gurnee Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Town Square Publications, a division of Daily Herald Media Group. A great deal of time and effort goes into this guide, and I want to especially thank our Chamber members, the Village of Gurnee staff and elected officials, as well as our schools, clubs and organizations that helped to pull all the content together. Most importantly, it could not be done without the efforts of the Village of Gurnee Chamber of Commerce board members. As you peruse the guide, please keep in mind we are open to suggestions for how we can better serve our Chamber members, residents and visitors referencing the guide.

We encourage longtime residents and visitors alike to browse the guide to get updates on the village and its local businesses. In it you will find featured articles and advertisements from your local businesses. Use this guide as a handy reference to village and township services, schools, volunteer groups and organizations in and around Gurnee. Most importantly, pay special attention to the chamber members and advertisers that make Gurnee the great community that it is. Once you go through the guide, I am sure you will agree with me that Gurnee is a great place to live and do business.

In this edition, we have expanded the Hometown Profiles feature from three Chamber member articles to four to further emphasize the Gurnee’s Got It theme. Take some time to read about these successful businesses that make Gurnee a great community to live and visit. Check out Excellence in Dentistry, Ltd., serving the community for 25 years, with Drs. Howard L. Cooper and Kate E. Limardi who specialize in comforting cowards of all ages.

For one of Gurnee’s many places to eat, check out Momcorn with Sergio Rivera and Kathy Ross serving up authentic Mexican and Latin American foods since 2012. A long-term presence founded in Gurnee is Community Trust Credit Union, serving Gurnee and surrounding communities for 84 years. The credit union’s recently appointed CEO Mike Mallow is committed to continue its growth and community involvement. On the real estate scene, check out the article on James D. Smith, broker/associate with Re/Max Showcase and his thoughts on the current real estate market.
The Chamber website,, has been up for over a year now, and is still evolving. We advise residents and visitors to check it regularly for upcoming events and announcements from our members.

A note to our members: Please check your listing on the Chamber website, and keep in mind we can link to your site (if provided the information). Also you can create login credentials to access your own listing on the Chamber site to add and update information. The more you use the website, the more we get upgraded on searches so all our members may get more exposure.

Follow the Village of Gurnee Chamber on Facebook for updates on upcoming events by the Chamber, shared information on other village events and member news postings. Generally, something new is posted every day or two and as always, the more information our members provide, the more information we will make available to everyone.

In closing, please remember the Chamber board is an all-volunteer group of dedicated individuals who devote as much time and effort as possible to encourage and promote business in Gurnee. To that end, we are always looking for ideas on how we can better serve the interests of our members, residents and visitors. Our organization is only as good as the participation and input we receive. Please feel free to drop us a line if you have an idea on potential events, programs or speakers. Your input is welcome and will be considered by the board. We are always in need of chairmen to assist the board in planning events, obtaining speakers and so on. If you are interested in getting involved, let us know.

To my board, thank you all. It’s a pleasure to serve with you all. The meetings are well attended and the participation is incredible. Let’s continue to move forward.
