Downtown Worker Appreciation Day Wins Award

At the Maine Downtown Center’s annual conference on June 10th, Portland’s Downtown District (PDD) and Portland Buy Local shared the Award for Outstanding Special or Retail Event. The award recognized Downtown Worker Appreciation Day, a joint initiative of both organizations.

PDD Executive Director Jan Beitzer accepted the award on behalf of both organizations. “We are thrilled that the Maine Downtown Center recognized our collaborative work. Our program has been so well-received by downtown workers that we now do two a year (April and September).”

Susan Tran, president of Portland Buy Local, added, “Downtown Worker Appreciation Day is at once a celebration of those who choose to work every day in downtown Portland and a valuable promotional opportunity for Portland’s local businesses who are seeking to connect with those workers. It’s really a win-win scenario for everyone involved.”
