Home for the Holidays Raffle

Shop in Niles this holiday season and you could win $100 Gift Card to your favorite Niles store

Shopping local or at "home" is important to our community.  It keeps our property taxes low, funds high quality Village services and shows local retailers - your neighbors, family and friends, that you care.  Plus, Niles can accommodate almost every shopping desire so why travel to neighboring towns when you can find it here at home. 

To encourage residents to shop during the holiday season in Niles, the Village is once again hosting the Home for the Holidays Raffle.
