Lee’s Card and Gift Shop

Stabilization Grant, Spring 2009

Lee’s Card & Gift Shop is located in the Mt. Airy neighborhood.  It is a double property and is working closely with the corridor manager for the Mt. Airy Revitalization Corporation.  They planned to revitalize the shop to include a layaway system for customers, implement daily promotions, offer silk flower arrangements, add a ‘sale corner’ to turn over aged stock.

The renewal of the exterior is a major piece of this project as well.  The owner applied to TMF to support the installation of new windows, doors, an awning, and security grates.  These new aesthetic and functional improvements will not only upgrade Lee’s Card and Gift Shop, but they will make the shopping experience more pleasant and easy for customers.  This has the potential to attract new customers.
