Many people are too busy transferring at Jefferson Park to realize its proximity to such things as Geek paradise American Science and Surplus (5316 N. Milwaukee).
Addison (3600 N/3600 W)

Division (1200 N/1600 W)
Even Chicagophiles may not realize they don't need to head to Park Ridge or other burbs for local chain Oberweis Dairy. There's one at 1293 N. Milwaukee, about a block from the 6-corner intersection.
Racine (1200 W/430 S)
