- What’s Happening Around Downtown in November?
A question I’m often asked is, “What makes a downtown economically vibrant?” This question stems from our Mission Statement at the San Luis Obispo Downtown Association, which clearly defines our mission to “Foster an
Economically Vibrant Downtown.” In reality, there are a lot of different variables that factor into a healthy downtown economy that range from small things like picking stickers off of signposts to much bigger things like responsible urban development.
- Downtown Business Spotlight – JSJ Hair Design
For Janet San Juan, the decision to start JSJ Hair Design in Downtown San Luis Obispo was the perfect transition for her between fine art and hairdressing. Located at 774 Marsh Street, her workspace is open, artsy and welcoming with her own artwork hanging on the walls.
JSJ Hair Design opened in July and Janet loves catering to the SLO community. She sets herself apart from other hairdressers and salons because she plans enough time aside to focus on each client.
