Welcome to Spencer Main Street!
We are proudly celebrating our 33rd year as a Main Street Iowa program this year. Spencer was founded on fertile soil, tested by fire, and thrives because of its people. The same is true for Main Street. We are a non-profit organization that works hard on economic development, historic preservation and bringing people downtown because we know there is no grander place!
Spencer is one of 55 Main Street communities in this great state of Iowa. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and are funded primarily through a Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District (SSMID) that was established in 1987 and supported by the City of Spencer. That district includes more than 170 businesses in Downtown Spencer.
Looking for an incentive to open a new business in town that isn't already here? The Retail Kickstarter Program was created to help spur retail growth in Spencer. This unique program offers a forgivable loan of up to $25,000 in conjunction with a 0% interest loan of up to $25,000 for qualifying projects. For more information and to get an application contact Nancy Naeve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT'S HAPPENING DOWNTOWN
Shop Local and find some great deals during Downtown Spencer’s Crazy Days July 23-25th. Due to COVID-19 we encourage everyone to wear masks because social distancing will be hard to do. We will have hand sanitizer stations set up outside, and business owners may limit the number of people inside their store at one time.
