Milwaukee Downtown BID #21 and the City of Milwaukee are launching its newest campaign to help support local business owners with MKE It Local and encouraging Milwaukeeans to make their dollars count.
The new campaign was created to call attention to restaurants, bars and shops in the central business district (and 10-plus surrounding neighborhoods) in order to encourage Milwaukeeans to escape from their homes safely and support local dining destinations and retailers.
Downtown neighborhoods participating in the MKE It Local campaign include Brady Street, The Brewery District, Downer Avenue, Downtown Milwaukee East Town, Downtown Milwaukee Westown, East Side, Harbor District, Historic Third Ward and Milwaukee Public Market, King Drive, Menomonee River Valley, Near West Side Partners and Walker’s Point.
“We recognize that the pandemic has deeply affected the majority of our local businesses,” says Beth Weirick, CEO of Milwaukee Downtown, Business Improvement District #21, in a press release. “This is what prompted myself and fellow BID leaders to seek out ways in which we could lend our support. Aside from catalyzing economic development initiatives, business improvement districts foster community. Now is the time for us to rally around the businesses that make our neighborhoods vibrant and distinct.”
