GREENVILLE — Join us for Main Street Greenville’s “New Businesses Showcase” on Saturday, Sep. 23 featuring new stores & services. Main Street Greenville is excited to showcase the growth that has taken place downtown this year. We are happy they have chosen our rural community as their home for their business as we are a community that has been known to continually support new businesses and entrepreneurs.
The new businesses have added value to our distinctive downtown shopping district which has a variety of offerings – from cozy boutiques, antique & thrift stores, home décor shops, handcrafted & homegrown markets, art & craft centered businesses, custom apparel shops, jewelers, cosmetics, beauty salons, tattoo parlors, barbers, coffee & tea houses, restaurants, to a bike shop, music store and now we can add a sewing salon, herbal store and knife sharpening to the growing lists…. Greenville’s atmosphere is every shoppers’ dream come true!
“Come help be part of the momentum of “SUCCESS” for the new businesses by patronizing them on Saturday, September 23, and during the upcoming holiday shopping season. Often, the first year a business is in operation is crucial and can determine their outcome to continue into the future. Let’s support the risk-takers in our community who help make it unique. After seeing many empty malls populate the country, let’s help prevent that from happening to our downtown by doing our part to help all the businesses in downtown thrive and prosper by shopping local as much as we can,” Executive Director of Main Street Greenville April Brubaker said.
As a community let’s give the “newbies” listed below a GREEN WAVE WELCOME on Saturday, September 23, during downtown’s “New Businesses Showcase.”
