Corning, NY—Corning's Gaffer District stands among more than 200 downtowns across the nation competing in America's Main Streets contest hosted by Independent We Stand, an organization that supports independently owned businesses and encourages people to buy local.
America's Main Streets contest recognizes the economic benefits of main streets and the small businesses that help them thrive. The winner will receive a $25,000 prize to support revitalization.
"Our Independent We Stand America's Main Streets contest gives small business owners the opportunity to share their main street stories nationwide," says Independent We Stand co-founder Bill Brunelle. "But we know it takes a community to make that possible, so we're inviting consumers to help recognize their favorite businesses."
