Recipe for Revival

Recipe for Revival

The Ozarks region is dotted with communities whose downtown districts have suffered setbacks and decline in recent decades. The pre-eminence of “big box” retailers and supercenters, the rise of e-commerce, and the enormous demographic shift to weekend and evening shopping have forced downtowns to employ creative strategies to lure shoppers back.

Main Street Batesville, faced with just such a challenge, has embraced a familiar strategy to revive downtown. The 2nd Friday Downtown Wander and Wonder Walk, launched on August 8, is a monthly downtown festival with extended shopping hours, free live music, free films, special events, fun activities, refreshments, and lots of local color.

Information, including a complete schedule and list of participating merchants, is available at Main Street Batesville, downtownbatesville@sbcglobal.net or 870-793-4632.
