Please Help And Fill Out Downtown Gloucester Survey

Friends and fellow Block Party Committee members Erika Hansen and Linn Parisi asked me to help get feedback for this on-line survey to help downtown-

Hey Joey,

A quick survey to help downtown: on-line survey link below

http://capeannonline.yuku.com/topic/10196/t/A-quick-survey-to-help-support-downtown-Gloucester.html

Do you shop downtown Gloucester? If you do, why do you? If you don’t, why don’t you?

B.U. MBA candidate, Ben Hildreth, has teamed up with Cape Ann Business Incubator to create a survey designed to find out the answer to these questions (and more) with a view to helping existing and potential downtown business owners learn what the locals want – and need.

Surveys are very user-friendly (they take approximately 2 ½ minutes to complete) and will help downtown merchants meet the community’s needs.

Click the link at the top of this e-mail to complete the survey on-line.

For more information, contact Erika Hansen at 978.282.7779 or info@businc.org.

Note: FYI, there is also a Visitors’ Survey, which Ben Hildreth developed in association with Seaport Gloucester Destination Marketing Organization, designed to help tourism-related businesses understand the needs of their market.

GMG/CABI St Paddy Day Window Display Contest Winners Video

Thanks to all those who participated, it really brightened up Main Street.  Main Street is going to be hopping this summer between the new construction at the Former Gray’s Building, The Block Parties, The New Ice Cream/Candy Shop, The Joke Shop.  There is some significant investment going on Downtown.

Gloucester Rocks, and this summer it’s going to be the best one yet.  I can feel the excitement starting to build with the nice weather!

Chickity Check It! Tony Goddess- His Real Name

When leaving our Block Party meeting I ran into this cat “Tony Goddess” in the basement of Cape Ann Business Incubator.  Tony runs a studio and helps to produce music in his space -Bang A Song Studio.

Lee Bolton’s War Games Headquarters

Last night our group of crazies got together for more Block party planning. Within the inner sanctum of the Cape Ann Business Incubator Lee Bolton runs his operation. It looked like a scene right out of the eighties movie War Games with Matthew Broderick and Alley Sheedy.

Lee is helping us with the huge slide show and video presentation for the Block Party but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if we find out that this guy is really plotting to take over the world from his command center deep in the bowels of the Cape Ann Business Incubator.
