Women on Main highlights variety of businesses in heart of Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (December 9, 2019) – A new business group is hosting an interactive event that promotes many of the women-owned businesses that help add to the vibrancy of Downtown Cincinnati.

Women on Main’s Wednesday Walk connects consumers with 13 businesses along a two-block stretch on Main Street from Sixth to Eight streets. Every business is woman-owned and -operated. On December 11, shoppers are encouraged to pick up a special Women on Main passport at any participating business – and get them stamped to win prizes, special promotions and discounts.

A passport will be provided for each attendee, which will guide and direct participants to each business. The passports must be checked off by the business owner to show attendees visited. A filled-out passport will then be used to enter a GRAND PRIZE RAFFLE at the end of the evening, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Participating businesses include:

  1. The Barre Code (fitness studio, 615 Main)
  2. Down to Mars Vintage (vintage clothing store, 621 Main)
  3. Bay Horse Café (restaurant/bar 625 Main)
  4. Crzy Monk (restaurant 627 Main)
  5. Balance Health Management (retail store, 631 Main 1st floor)
