Our Woodlawn neighbor — City Meats and Vegetables – is launching a major effort to help create a healthier community. That effort will result in more fresh meat and produce, better store layout, and new branding and community partnerships. Owner Randy Newell and the UFP team engaged the community and asked customers what they want from City Meats. Y’all spoke and we listened. City Meats is striving towards improved marketing, better communications, and more community outreach.
Newell is focusing on better branding, store reorganization, in-store marketing, a seasonal promotion calendar and product diversification to include more fresh meat and healthier items. City Meats customer David Todd, of Sparta Creative, has designed a logo and new fliers to share what City Meats has to offer. Newell has also purchased a cooler for fresh meat, and store reorganization is underway. Newell even created a healthy family pack for clients of Woodlawn YWCA’s nutrition programming.
Seasonal promotions begin in February with the $20 Valentine’s dinner pack. Learn more HERE! Keep your eyes out for this dedicated Woodlawn business owner’s improvements in the coming months!
TODAY IS THE DAY! REV Birmingham is celebrating 10 years of creating vibrant commercial districts in the City of Birmingham. Today is all about celebrating the past decade of success and all that we have accomplished. It all started ten years ago when two organizations – Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham – merged to create the one and only REV Birmingham. We have covered so much ground since then, from historic building rehab consulting all the way to our refresh of 20th Street North – and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at REV.
REV is turning TEN! Our birthday is swiftly approaching (it’s on November 15th in case you want to give us a happy birthday shoutout!) and we are spending the week leading up to it reflecting on the past 10 years. We have accomplished so much in just a decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us. But for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of our favorite projects.
From Austin, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana, learn why this family choose to move into the city center of Birmingham. We are interviewing people from all around the city and learning why they chose to move into Birmingham.
