A FEW KIND WORDS ABOUT THE DNA

“I am so grateful for the Downtown Neighborhood Association because it also helped me to feel connected. I was invited to events where there were other business owners and it added that dimension of making me feel like I was part of something. I’m so happy to be in Elgin and I think community style acupuncture, which if affordable acupuncture, will be an asset to the community.” ~ Jennifer Bowden, Owner of Ben Shen Health, speaking on her experience opening a new business in Downtown Elgin to the Elgin City Council.

“As a small retail business in exciting times of a growing downtown business district, we understand the importance of relationships that help shine a light on us. We’re a premium member to take advantage of a team that is focused on bringing that downtown visibility to reach more of the community and beyond. Over the past year we have noticed an increase in positive energy with the new businesses and events created and promoted by the DNA.” ~ Mary Pierce, Owner of Soulful Sparrow.

“By upgrading to the DNA Premium Membership program: my business has extra social media exposure, greater opportunities to be included in downtown DNA events, more detailed and visible job postings, and broader visibility on the DNA website. Combined, all of these factors create a greater chance for me to reach potential customers and Team Members and grow my business.” ~ Brian Haschak, Owner of Jimmy John’s on S. Grove.
