New businesses revitalize historic downtown Princess Anne
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – People gathered to celebrate the opening of several new businesses in the area Saturday morning.
Those businesses are the Grace & Glory Boutique, which offers all sorts of women’s clothing and accessories and Blunty Coached, a counseling services center. Both businesses opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
According to the Main Street Princess Anne Manager, Carrie Samis, these new businesses will help to revitalize the town. She said partnerships with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and the Chamber of Commerce have made these positive changes possible.
“The concerted efforts that Main Street Princess Anne has been making with its partners including the Town of Princess Anne, the Chamber of Commerce and UMES we’ve been working together with all the businesses to kind of increase the level of activity and foot traffic of course,” said Samis.
Samis also said most local business owners on Main Street in Princess Anne are women, people of color as well as immigrants, which reflects the town’s diversity.
