The holiday spirit is starting to come alive in downtown Davenport and Moline. Downtown Davenport Partnership and Moline Centre are two areas of the Quad Cities Chamber that focus on the strategic growth and beautification of their respective downtown of Davenport and Moline. They are working together with retailers to promote the array of opportunities to get in the spirit and support each downtown community.
This weekend Moline Centre will kick off its annual holiday event, Get Jazzed for the Holidays. Over a dozen retailers participate in this event with exclusive offers, live music, refreshments, hors d'oeuvres and door prizes. Get Jazzed continues with Lighting on the Commons on November 19 and ends with Small Business Saturday on November 26.
Downtown Davenport Partnership hosts a special shopping event each month called Third Thursday. Every third Thursday of the month retailers extend their hours and offer specials to customers. Third Thursday launched a year ago to showcase the growing number of unique and locally owned shops downtown. Bars, restaurants and breweries also offer exclusive deals during the event making the downtown experience complete.
Vibrant downtowns, with small, unique and locally owned businesses add to the fabric of a community and quality of place that are key to workforce attraction and retention.
