Cut Loose Hair Emporium and Getty Street Market place recently benefited from facade grants made available to business owners within the Uvalde Main Street district.
The 50 percent matching grants were awarded by Main Street Uvalde and Uvalde Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Cut Loose Hair Emporium, owned by Cody Esser, was granted $2,688 for a new awning and signage. Getty Street Marketplace, owned by Lisa and Rick Taylor, was awarded $270 for signage.
“We appreciated the opportunity to apply for the grant, which allowed us to obtain affordable, attractive signage that draws customers to the store,” said Lisa Taylor.
Esser said she hopes the new awning and signage combo will bring in new customers.
“I think that this will bring more awareness that there is a business in this location,” Esser said. “Even though I’ve been in business for eight years, we still have clients find us and ask if we just opened.”
