The postcards are going up around Ballard for a new campaign called “Tuesdays in Ballard” (.pdf file). It’s a summer-long campaign designed to entice people from both outside of Ballard and within the neighborhood to come shop, eat and play here. Tuesday night is a meeting for interested retailers to find out how they can be part of the grassroots campaign by pooling marketing resources. The meeting is from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Ave NW in the Captain Ballard room.) There will also be an informal networking hour from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Update: About 50 business owners and managers attended tonight’s initial “Tuesdays in Ballard” meeting. Boutique owners, salon owners, CPA’s and restaurateurs were all there to hear about the new campaign which kicks off on June 23rd. Stay tuned… we’ll have more in the coming weeks.
