Boost for Downtown Retail

By Elizabeth Ruiz 

Entrepreneurs investing in Downtown San Antonio's retail sector are getting a boost. 

The 80/20 Foundation has awarded a $250-thousand grant to Accion Texas--with the cash to be used to provide micro loans to those who want to open a retail business downtown. 

"We want unique places where people can feel like it's their neighborhood" said 80/20 Executive Director Lorenzo Gomez, adding "It can be anything from clothing to coffee shops to wine bars. I think our main goal is that it's something that locals and residents would like to see in thier downtown." 

The 80/20 Foundation was established by Rackspace Hosting Vhairman Graham Weston.
