DENTON — In 2019, downtown Denton welcomed ten new businesses to the district. With a range from fashion and decor to whole foods and spices to technology and service — Denton is blossoming with something to appeal to everyone.

Downtown Denton Main Street manager Audrey Clemens says their goal is to support local businesses in the Downtown Main Street District by creating a marketing plan connecting the local businesses and residents to build overall traffic to the area. DDMS hosts numerous events over the year in an effort to not only create traffic and interest in the Downtown area but to build a sense of community for Denton residents, says Clemens, and also helps develop resources through grants, fund raising and strategic alliances with other organizations and businesses.
