The Downtown Langley Business Association’s new “Get Fresh” program which was launched in May of this year has been a hit with local merchants and businesses. It was created from the desire to revitalize the downtown core by offering interested businesses the opportunity to apply for grants designed to improve the overall appearance of their business. The four grant types include merchandising, exterior painting, awning and signage cleaning, and facade improvements. Businesses are able to apply for one or all of these grants and so far the DLBA has received 44 letters of intent. The next time you’re in downtown Langley, you may not recognize your favourite shop!
