🏬🎁 Get in the Spirit: Local Businesses Need Your Support Now More Than Ever

Contributor: Jamie Richardson


As many of you know, Downtown Concord is undergoing a significant transformation. The city has embarked on an ambitious project to revamp the Downtown Streetscape, which promises to transform the area into a more pedestrian-friendly and visually appealing space. While the construction may cause some temporary inconvenience, it is important for the community to continue to support local businesses during this time.

The Downtown Development team is partnering with downtown businesses to create events such as “Christmas in July” to encourage community members to support local. This fun and festive event is designed to bring holiday cheer to the community during the summer months. This event will feature holiday-themed decorations, music, and activities, and will provide an opportunity for local businesses to showcase their products and services.
