Greenville Chamber Challenge

The Chamber announces the Greenville Chamber Challenge business contest. The Downtown Task Force generated the idea to attract businesses to the Greenville Business District. The winner will receive $5,000 to use for rent, down payment for purchase, or renovation and remodeling. Contestants must submit a business plan by September 18 to the chamber of commerce. Assistance in completing the plan is available from the Gannon Small Business Development Center located in the chamber office building. Five contestants will be selected by a panel of judges to give oral presentations, and then one winner will be chosen from those presentations. Criteria and eligibility guidelines are available at the Chamber office or you can download a copy here.

 

Greenville Main Street Showcase

A task force was formed at the suggestion of an engineer's study after the closure of Main Street, and we began to explore better ways for the Borough and the downtown merchants to communicate. The group participated in a couple of meetings sharing ideas not only about means of communication, but also about the general business environment in Greenville. 

These open discussions have led to the planning of an event on November 19 that will feature open tours of available rental space, as well as giving interested entrepreneurs an opportunity to talk with local bank representatives, a borough code representative, and a member of the Gannon Small Business Development Center.

This is an exciting venture, and the group is positive as we look for ways to market the business climate in Greenville. The next meeting is Oct. 26 at 6 p.m. in the chamber's conference room.
