The Margate Community Redevelopment Agency (MCRA) has announced this year's schedule for its small business promotional event series In the Biz Tuesdays. In the Biz Tuesdays was created in 2016 to promote awareness of Margate's unique and diverse small business community. These free events will rotate among different local businesses located in the MCRA district, featuring refreshments, entertainment, and activities. Events take place the 4th Tuesday of the month from April – September, from 6:00-8:00 PM. Attendees will receive a special VIP discount card that can be used at participating businesses every Tuesday through December 2017.
"Based on the success of last year's In the Biz Tuesdays, the Margate CRA is enthusiastically continuing the series for another season," remarked Diane Colonna, Executive Director of the MCRA.
The first event takes place on Tuesday, April 25th at Exclusiva Tu Boutique located at 2147 North State Road 7. Owner Vivian Turner, from the Dominican Republic, has been in business in Margate for one year. "I am so excited to participate in this program. In the short time I've been open, the hospitality and welcoming attitude of the Margate CRA makes me proud to have my business located here in Margate," states Turner. She handpicks every item within her boutique and offers trendy, fashionable, yet affordable clothing and accessories. Event highlights will feature mini facials, giveaways, complimentary beer and wine, hors d'oeuvres, and a homemade Dominican desert.
