How can SOM help YOU?
Springfield on the Move is hoping to help with anyone who is interested in possible retail store openings like  – antiques, re-purposed items, art, penny candy, art supplies, comic books, upholstery, window treatments, home goods, etc. 

Downtown Business Recruitment Program - We established the business recruitment program working with property owners to fill vacant space, this ongoing work continues. In addition, the recruitment program work group helped to guide the establishment of a loan fund for new businesses with the Main Street Corridor. Our goal for this loan program is to raise $100K to be able to lend up to $10K to as many as ten businesses. Our fundraising is 80% of the way there, with approximately four loan requests in the pipeline now or soon.

Downtown Benefits - Springfield is one of Vermont's twenty three Downtown Programs, as such, provides ready access to downtown tax credits and other benefits. Click here for a complete list of Downtown Benefits. Click here for the Map of the Designated Downtown area.

Whether you need information, want to look at available space or just chat about doing business in Downtown Springfield - call, e-mail or come to see us. We are anxious to talk with you!
