Tis the season to sparkle and the Shops at Crestwood certainly do! Located on 55th Street between Oak and Brookside Blvd., the shopping center was built by JC Nichols in 1922 to complement the residential area. In 2000, seven business owners in Crestwood created the Crestwood Shops, LLC and purchased the property from Highwood Properties.
