May 5th Lexington CONNECT to recognize existing businesses and reach out to new ones.

Lexington CONNECT, the Chamber's initiative to create awareness of available building space and celebrate our existing business community, will begin its second anniversary on Saturday, May 5th.

A lot of business goodness has happened over the past year. Much of the available building inventory in the downtown has been sold or leased. Although we've been asked not to spoil any surprises, two new businesses are currently remodeling properties and a third building is now under contract. We couldn't be more pleased that business is making a comeback in our downtown.

For this year's CONNECT, we've added a few new properties surrounding the downtown area and these buildings will be available for inspection on May 5. We'll be promoting these properties to real estate professionals, entrepreneurs and visionaries. You can pick up the brochure and map at the Chamber Office located at 1016 Main Street. The Chamber will also have representatives available on May 5 to show properties, answer questions and provide information about the city and explain why Lexington is THE place to grow an existing business, or start a new one.

The other part of the day will be "Small Business Appreciation Day" throughout town. To celebrate, many of our CONNECT partners are planning Open Houses, events and even a birthday party! We're asking that you take a small part of your day to show your support. And we'll even offer an incentive.

On May 5th, stop by the Chamber Office at 1016 Main, pick up the CONNECT brochure, map and CONNECT card. Then visit a local business you love, and a business you've never been to, fill out your CONNECT card and tell us what you love about those businesses. Return your card to the Chamber Office and your name will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $50 Chamber Gift Certificate, good at any Chamber member business.

We’ll be listing all of the events and promotions for our Lexington CONNECT partners. If you can't attend our event, please make a point of exploring and doing business in town. We all stand to gain from a strong local economy. Please visit connect.historiclexington.com to see our partner list, and the full list of available space, including properties that are currently leased or sold.

Let's finish what we started--CONNECT with Lexington businesses!
