Downtown continues to grow! Changes happening on the square
Special to The Chronicle from the Downtown Development Authority
Historic property improvements and the addition of new businesses around the square has downtown Swainsboro buzzing with activity. Downtown has recently welcomed a number of new businesses, including NZ Signs, Tax Source Financial Services, Always Caring HomeCare, The Shabulous Boutique, and Leannas. In addition, Radford’s Cleaners began 2021 by expanding into a larger space, located in the corner building of the old Delores & Woody’s Shops, as Gifts Galore works to expand its retail area on Green Street.
Along with all of the new businesses joining the downtown Swainsboro family, several historic properties have undergone renovations to better serve their tenants and customers. From interior updates to façade restorations to full-scale building rehabilitations, business and property owners have made significant investments in downtown Swainsboro, demonstrating their commitment to the district’s revitalization.
Development downtown does not appear to be slowing in the near future as multiple businesses prepare to open soon within the district. A new business is poised to make 112 West Main Street its home upon the completion of the property’s restoration that is combining its 1920s charm with modern amenities, and La Rosita Mexican Restaurant is preparing to open at 206 West Moring Street in the coming weeks.
With continued property improvements, business openings, and the completion of the Barbara & Tobe Karrh Community Arts Center ahead, the revitalization of Downtown Swainsboro continues to progress and strengthen the local economy.
