Small Box Shop Arrives
Jan 26th 2022 - -

Main Street Alabama’s Successful Small Box Shop initiative in Heflin and Wetumpka were highlighted in our last newsletter – guess what??  Two more are in the works!  Working through USDA, Main Street Alabama has received the go ahead to fund two additional Small Box Shops – one in Monroeville and the other in Marion, both located in South Alabama.

The purpose of the Small Box Shop is to stimulate and sustain economic development in the downtown district by encouraging entrepreneurs to test the market and eventually move into a brick-and-mortar building in the downtown district, thereby creating additional jobs and filling vacant buildings while providing needed goods and services to the community.

We plan to place the Small Box Shops by the end of January.  Our sincere thanks to USDA for believing in this project and helping entrepreneurs realize their dreams.
