Old Town business owners created a round table discussion forum after feeling their needs were not being met by the Old Town Commercial Association.
David Gregware, co-owner of Tallulah’s Folly and OTCA committee member, has brought concerns to OTCA on behalf of the small business owners of Old Town.
“A lot of the business owners are feeling a little left out,” said Gregware. “They are feeling there is not a lot going on for them.”
After having a separate meeting with the promotions committee of OTCA, Gregware said that structural changes have been made to the promotions committee to better serve the businesses of Old Town.
“The promotions committee has been restructured and rejuvenated,”said Gregware. “There are new people on the committee that have excitement to do new things.”
Gregware said that the big change to the structure was creating a round table forum where business owners will be encouraged to come and talk with each other about what OTCA can do to help promote their business.
“Specifically, we want to drive traffic to retail business,”said Gregware.
Gregware said that it is important that all of the small business owners get involved and that just a few will not accomplish anything.
“A lot has changed in what we’ve accomplished in the last month,” said Gregware. “We are looking at re-branding and maybe creating another festival in January.”
