Description: Independent retailers and restaurants are the heart and soul of small towns and main streets across Kentucky. Successful retailers build vibrant downtown destinations, but they face unique challenges ranging from inventory control, advertising, merchandising and staffing, to big box competition.

Local organizations such as Main Street programs, Chambers of Commerce, Retail and Restaurant Associations and others can work with the SBDC Small Town Merchant Program to deliver targeted, relevant guidance that business owners and managers can put to use immediately.
