As we enter 2019 I wanted to tell you about an exciting new project I’ve been working on: Yorkville Buy Local.
Last year my colleague Kim Moscaritolo and I hosted a forum on the issue of vacant storefronts. It was clear there was a tremendous amount of concern from folks in our community, but few resources available to help people better advocate on behalf of their local businesses.
Our goal is simple: we want Yorkville Buy Local to be a resource for you. We’ll be promoting local businesses, but also informing you about any upcoming events or efforts to protect local businesses and reduce the number of vacant storefronts in our neighborhood.
I hope you’ll visit and like our page. We’d love for folks to share posts about their own favorite local businesses as well. And of course, if you have any suggestions, don’t hesitate to leave us a message.
