The median age of the population is 42.1, which is slightly above the 37.0 median age reported for the region. Recognizing the importance of maintaining a diversity of business options, retaining existing establishments, and developing strong economic opportunities, the Village provides support to help those who choose to invest in the community.

Other shopping areas, such as Garden Market Center located at 47th Street and Gilbert Avenue, also serve the Village and surrounding communities.
