As an enticement to out-of-town customers, Main Street is offering
groups the opportunity to have their photo taken and receive coupons
worth $50 at downtown businesses.
Main Street also has published a
new brochure explaining the group offer and touting the specialty
shops and restaurants in the Courthouse Square Historic District.
The brochure is being mailed to customers of downtown businesses
who live outside Logan County. It's also available at the Main
Street office and at the Information Station.
The Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau has posted the brochure online
at its home page at www.abe66.com. Main Street also is notifying
news media across the state about the promotion.

"Out-of-town people love downtown Lincoln -- all the little shops
and the friendly people," noted Jeannie Xamis, chairman of Main
Street's Promotion Committee. "We have a wonderful downtown. We want
to invite others to share it."
"It's good for everyone when we bring in customers from out of
town," she added. "They shop here and they eat here, which benefits
both the businesses and the city economically."
