Promote your business with Downtown Tinley marketing campaigns

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. See below for more information on how Downtown Tinley business owners and organizations can 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 content deadline for 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, which also feeds to Twitter. Please include a jpeg photo with each submission.

Questions? Contact Donna Framke at (708) 444-5045 or

  • Email Sue Pall at with the information you'd like to appaer in the monthly Experience Downtown email. Make sure to include a detailed description of the event or promotion, as well as the date, place and time it will occur. Also include a contact name and phone number, email address or website link in case residents have more questions. Feel free to submit a jpeg photo with your email.

Downtown Tinley Facebook and Twitter

The Downtown Tinley Facebook page, which feeds to Twitter, was created to provide attractive and compelling content and images to promote Downtown Tinley events, dining, shopping and specials. This in turn helps to increase sales and foot traffic, and promote business attraction in the Village of Tinley Park's downtown business district.

We encourage all Downtown Tinley businesses and attractions to post their own dining, shopping and special event promotions on their own business Facebook page so we can share it on the Experience Downtown Tinley Facebook page, which feeds to Twitter.  We would love to see every business represented on the Downtown Tinley Facebook page. To assure that we “Like” your business Facebook and share your posts, please email a link to your Facebook page along with a quick description of the post you want us to share to If your business does not have a Facebook page, please email your promotion along with your website address and a jpeg photo to and we will post for you.
