Promoting and Encouraging Downtown Businesses
Downtown Bloomsburg Inc. (DBI), a subsidiary of the Chamber, is pursuing projects to enhance the downtown while continuing to support existing businesses and encourage new business development.
The organization is working with a Bloomsburg University intern to update its database of downtown businesses and commercial properties. Ben Rance will be stopping in to businesses and contacting property owners to gather basic information. This will help DBI stay in communication with business owners and managers, market the downtown, and also market available commercial spaces. The DBI Board thanks businesspeople in advance for providing information.
DBI will also be welcoming Bloomsburg University alumni and parents to Town. Homecoming is Oct. 6 and Parents and Family weekend is Oct. 12-14. A downtown brochure is being updated to help visitors find stores, restaurants, and services. The brochure will be included in information packets provided for Parents and Family Weekend.
