There’ll be a merchant meeting on Tuesday morning, 8:30 a.m. at The Root.


Develop New Albany says:

“Join other local merchants monthly as we discuss what’s going on in our community and share ideas and best practices. This event is free and open to all local merchants and employees.”

Business owners definitely need to meet each other and discuss pertinent issues, preferably in the form of an autonomous independent business association, because otherwise business owners run the risk of being co-opted into political agendas, especially during the run-up to Sherman Minton Bridge repair work — this being an existential issue for downtown New Albany.

Full stop.

I realize not all of you appreciate obvious truth, although consider that the wonderful thing about both Tiggers and obvious truth is that each stands on its own. Indie business owners can stand on their own, too. See you bright and early Tuesday morning.
