Financial Incentive to Shop in Bloomsburg

Financial Incentive to Shop in Bloomsburg

There are dozens of places however with an increasing number of people shopping online, at times, a company can be a little slow. “Often there are very few people on the sidewalk here, and we’d like to see it even more lively,” Oren Helbok explained. Company owners hope with the beginning of advertising, they will see some new faces shopping downtown. 

The Duane and Susan Greenly Foundation donated $5,000 to Downtown Bloomsburg Inc.. Participating businesses will give away $20 gift certificates to clients every Monday through Friday for the rest of this year. “I hope people believe, ‘Hey, I have a chance to win $20, and then I get to spend it downtown.’ There are lots of places here to come store, to come to consume,” Helbok said. 

“Anything we can do to enhance the downtown is going to be wholesome,” Aaron Rush said. Over two dozen companies are involved, such as Flame and jelqing. Owner Aaron Rush thinks it is a good idea. “I think that it’s been a challenge just within the years with online shopping. Obviously, we are a college city, so the accessibility to beverage and food on campus is reachable,” Rush said. 

Individuals who shop at downtown Bloomsburg tell Newswatch 16 they believe the marketing is a fantastic idea. “I think it’s amazing because I think it’s a cute little downtown, and more families should be coming out. There are a lot of families who live here, so it’d be cool to see additional action,” Lynn Warwick stated. The promotion runs through this year’s end and no purchase is necessary.
