Support local businesses and shape the downtown you want!
While we’re in the process of identifying compelling new business experiences for a new generation of downtown patrons, many of the existing downtown businesses may want to do the same.
Here’s how Renew Hempstead members can help them out!
- Identify an existing business owner, ideally one that’s open in the evenings like a restaurant, that you feel would be interested in attracting new customers on a typically slow night. Provide suggestions by commenting below, or emailing Latoya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If they’re interested, we’ll present a brainstorm of ideas for what members believe will attract new crowds of customers on a slow night, like perhaps trivia night, or open mic, or wine tasting, or local food night…
- The most popular ideas at the end of the month with at least 20 Likes and a business owner willing to host it, wins!
- We’ll then ‘biz mob’ the most popular idea, our own version of what’s known as a cash mob. That is, we’ll pick a date and invite all Renew Hempstead members and the community to ‘mob’ the place to ensure this crowd-supported idea literally attracts a new customer base!
