The Main Street Program, under the umbrella of the Chamber of Commerce, was organized in 1990. Main Street is a national organization aimed at the revitalization and retention of our downtowns. In 1993 the name was changed to TEAM CLEVELAND/Main Street in order to reflect the community-wide commitment to promoting and revitalizing all of our business districts, citywide. TEAM CLEVELAND/Main Street is active in all areas of the four-point approach.

At the Chamber, we strive to keep a complete and current list of all community activities.
By looking at our Program of Work you will understand the wide range of work that is done to better our communities.
The Cleveland Main Street Office and Team Cleveland would like to remind you of the importance of shopping local.
Shopping in Cleveland is critical to the local economy. Retail creates 1,007 jobs in Cleveland while 495 jobs are created by the food services industry. In fact, for every $100 spent at a locally-owned business, $68 stays in the local economy compared to only $43 if spent at a national chain and $0 if spent outside of Bolivar County.
In addition to the economic impact realized, shopping locally helps to maintain the diversity and distinctive flavor of the Mississippi Delta region.
There are over 82 retailers and 26 restaurants in Cleveland to accommodate your holiday shopping needs.

Why Buy Locally? The 3-50 Project
For every $100 spent in local, independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.
If you spend the same in national stores, $43 stays locally.
If you spend the same on the Internet, $0 stays locally.
The 3-50 Project has posters and more information to encourage people to buy locally.
