A longtime business selling necessities to Shaw residents in a large space, but Dollar Plus Savings found itself surrounded by new condos, coffee shops and beer gardens. Not wanting to ignore its longtime customers but knowing the neighborhood was changing fast... we worked with business owner Halima to write grant applications, complete architectural drawings, meet with potential co-tenants, order equipment- you name it- plus we handled the traditional building improvements. This was a combination of Great Streets, DHCD funding and a lot of hard work to protect some of the community's character.
