Tools to Support Independent Businesses & Fill Empty Storefronts on Granville Street

  • Tools to Support Independent Businesses & Fill Empty Storefronts on Granville Street

LOCO was commissioned by the Downtown Vancouver BIA (DVBIA) to investigate some of the issues for area businesses and leasing agents that contribute to empty storefronts on Granville Street. The project investigated the success of existing independent businesses, producing case studies to help overcome perceived barriers for other businesses. We surveyed and connected to independent businesses, in the hopes that independent businesses will continue to find affordable spaces there, and maintaining retail diversity.
