"Harvest a Stronger Community" Event
August 27, 2012

Last week, a networking event featuring Local First Arizona Founder and Director Kimber Lanning was announced. The September 13, 2012 event commencing at 5pm and dubbed Harvest A Stronger Community This Fall, is the result of a joint effort between Barnaby Street Shoppes, Benevilla and Local First Arizona and now Leadership West.

“We’ll be having a lively conversation about how every day citizens can play a key role in economic recovery,” says guest speaker, Kimber Lanning. “Too many people believe the economy is something far away that someone else is going to fix for us. The truth is, we can fix it ourselves.”

Today, Tina Wilson, Vice President of Development at Benevilla adds “It’s turning out better than planned. Collaboration and creativity have resulted in added value to attendees. We’ve added an Artist’s Reception sponsored by Leadership West and live music from Fossil Fuel.” Local photographer, Randy Jackson, will be onsite to discuss his artwork.

The additions “show what Barnaby Street knows happen when entrepreneurs and the community partner to benefit us where we live” adds Beatrice Kabab, real estate specialist for Barnaby. “Hopefully, this is the beginning of a growing focus on what businesses and residents can do together for the community.”

Barnaby Street Shoppes Selected Innovator of the Year
April 8, 2012

Spirit AwardBarnaby Street Shoppes is a retail incubator program created in 2010 that focuses on connecting local business owners and customers. Retail incubator programs are a dynamic way to connect small business owners to a store front that allows the business to grow without huge overhead costs. The entrepreneurs who are drawn to Barnaby Street Shoppes are either start-ups or home-based businesses looking to expand. Barnaby's model also attracts those who have been in business for sometime and are trying to maximize profits in this tough economy. Even larger companies are looking for a test market and want a presence in our community. Barnaby Street offers businesses various services such as Wi-Fi, fax, co-op advertising, and guest speakers all in an upscale venue. Barnaby Street hopes these benefits will eventually make it possible for the retailers to graduate into their own store front. Watching these entrepreneurs develop their business from an idea into a full scale retail business is rewarding. In addition to supporting local business owners, the benefits of buying locally are passed onto the consumers. Barnaby Street knows that people are still looking for small town businesses where they can purchase goods and services from local business owners in a pleasant home town environment. With current tenant expansion and several new inquiries, Barnaby is hoping to grow more businesses by adding more space within the coming years. Barnaby Street Shop pes has seen the impact of the economy and believes that they can make a difference by supporting the "shop local movement." For Barnaby, the opportunity to have a positive impact in our community is truly exciting. -- Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce

In the meantime, managers at the mall decided to germinate some of their own boutiques by opening Barnaby Street Shoppes, an indoor street fair that serves as a retail version of a business incubator.
