We own a building on Main St. Our taxes tripled, we have a business on the Dunbar St side, lease a space on Main and live in the loft. I will soon be shuttering the whole building thus putting out approx. 10 people out of work, closing the two shops and leaving another building vacant on Main. It makes no sense what so ever for me to remain here. We have struggled for 8 yrs and invested every dime we have. The City seems so pro active to recruit business to downtown but yet totally ignores the people who have hung on and invested in the future. I guess it makes sense to intice people to open a business downtown and provide them with a year of free rent and triple the taxes of the people who are already here. Go figure, it's Spartanburg.
