Online business directory

Hamline Midway Coalition encourages neighborhood business to register for an online business directory.

The Coalition has spent the past few months improving their website to make hosting and sharing information easier. Hopefully, the changes are noticeable.

The business directory is one area on the website that has seen improvements and now they are encouraging Hamline Midway businesses to sign up! To do so, visit the website at https://www.hamlinemidway.org/community/business-directory to view or sign up.

Why shop locally? Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns three times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain. This fact isn’t enough? Learn more on our website.

Garage sale weekend returns May 3-5!

In 2015, the Hamline Midway Neighborhood Garage Sale started as a one-day sale and opportunity to meet neighbors, all while clearing out the items you no longer wanted or needed. Now, in its 4th year, more people are collaborating with neighbors to increase their visibility, coordinate this as a fundraiser for their school or team, and have hope that it is a way to boost the local neighborhood economy.

This year the fee to enter your sale is $12. This cost goes to advertising, fees for the interactive-online mapping tool, and for the signage that goes put all around the neighborhood. Now is your chance to start planning for this year’s sale and something we call all look forward to for warmer days!

Sign up at www.hamlinemidway.org/garagesale or contact us at garagesale@hamlinemidway.org.
