News from Downtown
Saturday, November 28 marks the fifth annual Small Business Saturday. Downtown Missoula businesses are participating in the event that saw $14.3 billion in consumer spending across the nation last year. Small Business Saturday was created by American Express in 2010 to help support local small businesses that create jobs and support the local economy from the base level.
MISSOULA – With significant support from the Missoula Downtown Foundation (MDF) and the City of Missoula, the Missoula Downtown Association (MDA) has funded the holiday décor infrastructure repairs to light and decorate Downtown Missoula for this holiday season. In order to install the décor before Thanksgiving, the MDA and MDF had only four weeks to raise $14,500 needed for repairs. With several different partners and donors pitching in, an additional $10,000 was raised to put towards next year’s repairs.
