If we want people to shop downtown lets give them some incentive. For every $500.00 they spend with our downtown shops in receipts, the town gives the shopper a $ 50.00 gift certificate to all participating stores.
The stores could pay into it and the city could subsidize a good portion of it.
Just an idea, but lets do something NOW
