Workshops offer guidance to improve storefronts
The Beaverton Downtown Association and the citys Main Street Program are presenting three upcoming workshops designed to educate participants on how to revitalize the appearance of their businesses in order to make them more attractive to patrons.
Called Three Keys to Success, the workshops will be held at the Beaverton History Center, 12412 S.W. Broadway St., on Sept. 12, Oct. 3 and Oct. 17. Refreshments will be served at 5:45 p.m. with the workshops immediately following from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Among the topics covered is the citys Downtown Storefront Improvement Program, which provides matching grants and design help to improve downtown storefronts.

It was a pretty easy process, and its a great opportunity. The program definitely helped improve the facade of our building, and business has picked up since.
Here is the schedule for the workshop series:
Being open for business means providing our local companies the tools and support they need to succeed, said Mayor Denny Doyle. These seminars enable people to come together, share best practices and help each other improve their businesses.
