OurShop is a 6-month pilot program designed to help cities and their neighborhoods make smart, data-driven decisions about main street retail in a post-COVID and tech-enriched world. The semi-permanent initiative is meant to bridge community wants and needs with what’s possible in the marketplace while documenting and measuring the impact of placemaking and activation on retail sales and growth. The initiative is meant to inform public and private investments in entrepreneurship ecosystems, neighborhood retail strategies, and commercial district operating systems.
