As more foot traffic and events pick up in 2021, the added business is helpful for everyone that works in the restaurant. We’re told this time last year felt like a “Ghost town” in the area. “I’m starting to breathe finally because I’m front of house manager I want people to make money here right. So I’m really happy that people are starting to make money, it’s getting more and more worth it to be here,” said Rademacher.
Front of House Manager Mark Rademacher says they bring in much needed customers. For businesses like Liberty Tap Room & Grill, the return of these events, and more, is a potential life saver.
“The numbers are kind of odd right because last year was unprecedented but more than double, easily more than double,” he said. None may be happier to see the increased foot traffic in the area than local businesses.
“We appreciate when you shop local very much because we’re trying to get back up on our feet. We had a really good spring break and we are hoping that we will continue that through the rest of the season for us. Because basically the bulk of our business is during this time frame so that helps us get through the winter months,” said Luers. As we have reported, as business starts to pick up there are lots of places that are looking to hire. The spring and summer is when we learned a majority of their business is usually done, so having more people in downtown Greenville during this time is welcomed.
“There’s no comparison, there’s a huge difference. Between last May we had no sales and this May we’ve had decent sales, so I think we’re starting to see an upper trend,” said Boutique Manager Karla Luers. A few blocks down the street at Splash on Main, we’re told having events downtown is also invaluable to the boutique.
