Main Street Greenville has paired up with Second National Bank to present a ‘Business Learning Series’ as a way to reach out and assist small business needs. The series consists of four workshops a year. The first will take place on Tuesday, June 26 from 6:00-8:30 pm at the Little Italian Café. The topic will be “How to create enticing displays & marketing that reflect your business & yield results” with presenter Patricia Henahan. Attendees can expect to uncover who they are and who they want to be, how small changes can yield big results, open dialog and interaction from participants, self-assessment of how they stand out with their visual displays, and how to maximize their business with cross-marketing techniques.
“We feel this is a valuable opportunity for downtown businesses as well as other small businesses throughout the Greenville community. We are pleased to have this partnership with Main Street Greenville to address small business needs,” stated John Swallow, SNB President & CEO
