"If it's here...don't buy it there."

Shopping local isn't just convienence, it is one of the best ways to stablize our local economy. Not everything is in town, but you might be surprised what you can find locally when you look. Remember...if everyone in Clinch County spent just $10 a week more at home it would generate $3.6 million for our economy.

DESIGN

How do we look?
Design means getting downtown into top physical shape and creating a safe, inviting environment for shoppers, workers, and visitors. Recently, downtown Homerville underwent an $880,000 streetscape project funded by the GA Department of Transportation’s-Transportation Enhancement Grant. Empire Plaza was created during the project and is located in the heart of downtown. Empire Plaza includes a limestone fountain surrounded by over 900 commemorative engraved brick pavers, benches, additional parking, landscaping, an integrated sound system, and more. Empire Plaza won the 2012 Georgia Downtown Association's Creative Problem Solving Award.

PROMOTION

What do we do?
Promotion takes many forms, but the goal is to create a positive image that will rekindle community pride and improve consumer and investor confidence in the commercial district.

Promotions communicate Homerville’s unique characteristics, business establishments, and activities to shoppers, investors, potential business and property owners, and visitors. Since 2006 Homerville Better Hometown Program's main event is our annual Christmas celebration-Homerville for the Holidays. We are also team up with Clinch County Farm Bureau to host local Farmers Markets, and we support existing merchants with SHOP LOCAL campaigns. The Clinch Cultural Arts and the Homerville Better Hometown Program collaborate to bring unique cultural experiences to the community and to the school system.

Showcasing our community and local businesses may be why Homerville was recognized in the 2012 Georgia Travel Guide…see pages 18 & 65.

In addition to spear-heading specific campaigns and planning local events, Homerville Classic Main Street Program works to create marketing materials that can be used to promote our community as a whole. Check out our ad in the 2016 Guide to Clinch County and the power point presentation used by the Clinch County Development Authority.
