One issue that's always on the agenda here in Hillyard, is how to promote the business district. At the Wednesday meetings someone usually has a question or a suggestion for advertising or some sort of promotion.
And the questions remain the same: what works and how much is it?
T-shirts are printed, fliers are printed, banners are put up and taken down, decorations for holidays and seasons are put up, special promotions are planned, Santa comes once a year - there is no lack of ideas and creativity.
So, can you think of promotions that have worked for you, or encouraged you to visit a neighborhood where you usually don't go or shop? Do you want a printed newsletter mailed to you? Is e=mail better? Coupons? Let's hear it.
