Mayor Domenic J. Sarno enjoyed a visit Prospect Variety Store at 51 Prospect Street on Thursday, August 17th at 2:00 PM to celebrate the completion of their storefront improvements. Prospect Variety recently completed improvements to their business with the assistance of the city’s Neighborhood Storefront Improvement Program.
“Our storefront program has been assisting small businesses throughout Springfield,” said Mayor Sarno. “Improving the look and feel of our businesses not only makes them more welcoming to customers, but helps make our neighborhoods more attractive and inviting.”
Prospect Variety is owned by Carmen Ortiz, who has owned the property since 1994 and whose family is celebrating 40 years at the address this fall. Ms. Ortiz utilized the program to replace doors, windows, erect new lighting, and new signs.
