The Downtown Oak Park (DTOP) business association just launched a new shopping application for smartphones, which allows users to search for "perks" at nearby businesses.
Launched last month, the app is available for both iPhones and Androids, and can be found by searching "Oak Park" in each platform's store, according to a press release. Once downloaded, users can look for any events, discounts or announcements at nearby shops in DTOP and redeem any bonuses by scanning the barcode at each business.
The app also includes a business directory, events page and the ability to "follow" individual merchants to receive text alerts, according to the press release.
