New Businesses

Message from the Chair – July 2020

July 2, 2020

As promised, the flowers are in place in the downtown and look as gorgeous as ever. New summer
banners are seen all along King Street and we are working with the Town to finish compatible banners
for Queen Street.

The Digital Main Street program, assisting small business has been extended to August 31 st but will not
be extended beyond that date. Loucas is hard at work signing up new clients and helping small
businesses make the most of the digital tools available. There is still time to sign up by contacting
Loucas at

Another exciting project ShopHERE powered by Google has been introduced. The goals are similar to
Digital Main Street in terms of assisting small independent business build a digital presence, but the help
is provided only online. For more information please see the notice on this website.

In June we had our first virtual Board meeting which went off very well. Big thanks to Jordyn Lavecchia
of the Town of Caledon and to Loucas Loucaides for handling all the technical details. Depending on
the pandemic we will have another virtual meeting if needed, but not necessarily monthly. Meantime,
for any questions or concerns contact Trudy at

From all of us on the Board, stay safe and healthy
