Welcome to Ormond Mainstreet!

In 1994, four Ormond residents met with the idea of doing something to revitalize a downtown that had been diminished by time and sprawl. A business owner, a school teacher, a retiree and a city planner, they envisioned a hometown to be proud of and saw the potential for business prosperity, architectural renewal and a refurbished infrastructure of parks, streets and cultural enhancements in the City’s core.

Now – 20 years later – the downtown area is still vital to the health and prosperity of our city. Through it’s actions, Ormond Beach MainStreet has helped to create our four riverfront parks, overseen the redevelopment of Granada Boulevard, granted renovation dollars to more than 30 district businesses, encouraged the creation of off-street parking, created an Arts District and so much more.

As one of more than 2,000 MainStreets organizations nationwide, our volunteers create events, work with the City government to foster economic development, examine district renovation grants and help to brand and market our downtown as a place where citizens and local businesses both thrive in a better, stronger and more vibrant Ormond Beach.

November 29th is Small Business Saturday!

Just open a newspaper anytime around Thanksgiving and you’ll see plenty of sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  This year, join a push that’s been sweeping the nation since 2010 and shop local at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.

Did you know that Ormond Beach MainStreet has almost 100 small retail businesses and restaurants offering everything from clothes to skateboards to cookware and so much more?  When you visit an independent local business you keep more money in your local economy, celebrate the uniqueness of your community, conserve your tax dollars and benefit from local expertise.  More than 70% of the dollars you spend with local retailers comes directly back into the economy in jobs, taxes and reinvestment.  More than 100 million Americans shopped small on Small Business Saturday last year.

Make this the year you join them!
