SBA Main Street Road Tour made a stop in downtown Vicksburg!

Small Business Administration Administrator, Marie Contreras-Sweet, is making her way through the Delta on a Main Street Road Tour. She is going through downtown areas and meeting and showing appreciation to small businesses. We are so happy that the SBA took an interest in our downtown, being that Vicksburg was one of only three cities in Mississippi that was chosen to be visited! The SBA chose stores throughout our downtown area to stop in and visit based upon their business, story and history of their business, along with other entities. Maria Contreras-Sweet was presented with a key to the city and Mayor Flaggs was presented with a certificate for supporting the entrepreneurs of our community! If you are looking at starting a new business contact us at the Main Street office and we will be glad to get you in touch with the SBA district manager.
