McAllen to host storefront revitalization workshop

The city of McAllen on Monday will assist businesses who want to refresh their storefronts with a workshop at 5:30 p.m. at the Old Church Winery on Main Street.

Last month, the city announced a grant program for businesses in designated areas of the city to apply for a matching grant of up to $15,000 from the McAllen Retail & Business Development Department, run by Rebecca Olaguibel.

If a business lies within the following areas, it can apply for the grant: 10th Street from Houston Avenue to Nolana Avenue; U.S. Business 83 from McColl Road to 29th Street; 23rd Street from Idela Avenue to Pecan Boulevard; South Ware Road from Idela Avenue to Pecan Boulevard.
