Downtown Blacksburg Inc. is proud to present our non-profit Member of the Month for November 2017 – the South Main Merchants Association of Blacksburg, VA.
Founded in 2013, the South Main Merchants Association of Blacksburg is an active proponent of the re-development of the South Main Corridor. We work together to encourage the success of South Main’s local merchants and businesses along it’s commercial, restaurant, shopping and entertainment district. Each monthly meeting is hosted by a different business owner/ manager, who shares their company’s story with other members, creating a more bonded, and knowledgeable community. Nonprofit organizations, and political candidates are also encouraged to speak at our monthly meetings, educating members on local needs and opinions.
Since our inception, we have hosted Easter Egg hunts, Boo-Do Halloween events, marketing training sessions, social mixers, and in 2016, we were thrilled to co-host an event featuring Melody Warnick, author of “This is Where You Belong”. Also, in 2016, we were a sponsor of Be Kind Blacksburg, an initiative encouraging kindness throughout the town of Blacksburg.
We are honored to represent the South side of Blacksburg, as we work with other merchant organizations in town, to support and promote the entire town of Blacksburg. Working together provides a stronger voice, to our elected officials, as well as association members and citizens of Blacksburg.
