Economic Development


We want to bring small businesses to West Bloomington and support the growth of our neighborhood through promotional events and programs.

Small Business Saturday

West Bloomington is home to a variety of food, retail, and service businesses. We will share a list of businesses participating in West Bloomington’s Small Business Saturday in November.
