Promote your business with the Downtown Tinley Marketing Campaign

The Village of Tinley Park and the MainStreet Commission offer many FREE ways to promote events, dining, shopping and services in Downtown Tinley, including the Experience Downtown Tinley email campaign, Facebook and Twitter. Below is the Experience Downtown Tinley promotion form. This form will allow Downtown Tinley business owners and Tinley Park attractions (Vogt Visual Arts Center, Park District, Library, Chamber of Commerce, etc.) to submit dining, shopping and special event promotions that will be sent to nearly 3,000 subscribers (and growing) each month.

Experience Downtown Tinley Email Campaign

Each month you will receive a Downtown Tinley Insider merchant email that outlines the month's theme and includes inspiration to help you plan your business promotion. The deadline to be in the Experience Downtown Tinley email will be highlighted in each merchant email. If we do not receive your promotion by the deadline your submission will not be included. Keep in mind that promotions that do not make the email campaign can be posted on the Downtown Tinley Facebook page that also feeds to Twitter. Please include a jpeg photo with each submission. Questions? Contact Donna Framke at (708) 444-5045 or
