Downtown Dollars


Downtown businesses financially reinvest twice as much back into the local economy as do chains. Locally owned businesses Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.


Downtown contributes to a strong community by linking neighbors in a web of economic, cultural and social relationships. In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve and support their downtown’s distinctive character have a long-term economic advantage.


Downtown is a sustainable, compact, walkable commercial neighborhood. Choosing to do business downtown reduces unnecessary automobile use, habitat loss from sprawl, and pollution.
