TITUSVILLE– City development officials wish to fill two vacant downtown storefronts with any number of little businesses.

Theyre inviting artists and artisans to set up storestart a business in an arts and crafts-themed retail incubator in the previous Angeli Winery store at 105 S. Franklin St.

The 2,000- to 3,000-square-foot retail area might be shared by any variety of artists and specialists, said Deborah Eckelberger, business outreach planner for the Titusville Neighborhood Development Agencies. It depends on how much space they need, if they need a display case or maybe a counter for point of sale, she said.

The microbusinesses would share energy and management costs and management responsibilities.

Its a less expensivea more economical method for them to have more of a retail existence year around, and not just on holidays or at craft programs, Eckelberger said.
