Phase 2

2 Jul

Ten days are left in the project. We are continuing to conduct interviews with store owners but are wrapping up other veins of inquiry. We’ve  finished our interviews with people about their routine behaviors, access to, and realization of their desires in the downtown. We will be visualizing their responses to share with business owners at Speed Dating for Store Owners.

Maybe it would be hasty of me to make a direct correlation between the two but with 19 vacant storefronts along Pelissier the construction must be doing something to these small businesses. Taking the advice of a local concert venue operator (not Tom) we’ve paired our operations down. This has involved moving one of our two desks into the hallway. Our working process has become significantly streamlined.

Over an excellent lunch at Mandarin House we started making decisions about the final form of the Tip Sheet. Our 30+ previous categories have been focused down into two, that of growth and image.
