Provide Feedback on Age-Friendly Businesses
Evanston community members are encouraged to visit and provide feedback on 20 local businesses seeking recognition through the City’s Age-Friendly Business Initiative.
During the month of July, community members of all ages can visit any of the following businesses and complete an online survey regarding their experience for a chance to win one of three $50 gift cards to an Age-Friendly Business of their choice:
Argentium Care (formerly SASI); Becky & Me Toys; Center for Independent Futures; Cultivate Urban Rainforest & Gallery; Curt’s Café (Central Street); Doc Able’s Auto Clinic; Evanston Art Center; Evanston Stitchworks; Hip Circle Empowerment Center; Institute for Therapy through the Arts; Kratos Strength Systems; Lapin Systems; Minasian Rug Company; Preston’s Flowers & Gifts; The C.G. Jung Center; Search Inc. (JJ’s List); Virag Jewelers; Walsh Natural Health; Evanston Community Bank & Trust (Wintrust Bank); and the McGaw YMCA.
For each survey completed, the customer will be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift card. The survey is available online at cityofevanston.org/
The City’s Age-Friendly Business Initiative aims to recognize local businesses making an extra effort to accommodate customers of all ages and abilities, including older adults. Age-Friendly Business criteria include staff communication, physical environment, safety and accessibility.
The 20 businesses currently participating in the survey are in the final stage of being recognized as Age-Friendly Businesses, but are seeking customer feedback to complete the process. Additional businesses are welcome to apply for Age-Friendly consideration during the month of July. For the most up-to-date list of participating businesses, please visit cityofevanston.org/AgeFr
