Our Downtown Community came out to show their support for weekend hours at local businesses Sunday by packing the new Starbucks on Market Street.
Christina Jedra at the News Journal wrote about the effort - here's some excerpts:
Dozens of downtown Wilmington residents bought Starbucks coffee on Sunday in a concerted show of support for one of the few Market Street businesses open seven days a week.
"The whole thing is to give Starbucks a reason to stay open on Sundays and attract other businesses," said Will Minster, director of Business Development for Downtown Visions.
In the afternoon, Wilmington artists gathered to discuss ways to collaborate on projects and improve the city through their talents.
I look forward to seeing our Downtown continue to grow and thrive all week long.
