The Uptown Retail Challenge makes its debut

Uptown Greenville and City of Greenville’s Office of Economic Development staff revealed the Uptown Retail Challenge at the Greenville-Pitt Chamber of Commerce Business Expo. This annual event held at the Greenville Convention Center hosts an array of business owners showcasing their services and merchandise to consumers from Greenville and surrounding areas.

The Uptown Retail Challenge is aimed at promoting economic development by attracting new/relocating retail business in the Uptown Commercial District. Uptown Greenville, City of Greenville, and local business partners are making significant strides towards revitalizing Greenville’s central business district. This incentive program is a collaborative effort to provide an awards package to one new or relocating retail business a year. The award will include subsidies for rent, utilities, and advertising for a value up to $15,000.
