Open A Business

Become part of our downtown community!

We are looking to fill the last remaining commercial space in the historic Woolson Block Building, located on Main Street in Springfield’s beautiful Designated Downtown area. We encourage temporary or “pop up” businesses!

The Designated Downtown enables property owners and businesses access to significant economic development benefits

And based on our commissioned market study, Springfield is a place full of potential to do business.
