Belair-Edison Main Street
Belair-Edison's Main Street district includes the 3200-3600 blocks of Belair Road and the 3000-3200 blocks of Erdman Avenue. The business district benefits from a highly visible location along Belair Road -- a major gateway into Baltimore City and the surrounding counties. Each day, over 30,000 cars pass through the intersection of Belair and Erdman.
The Main Street program brings many new opportunities to local businesses including grants for facade improvements, funding for promotional events, marketing guidance, and assistance in organizing merchant activities. The program stimulates private and public investment in local businesses.

Main Street Small Business Resources at Work
One of the many benefits of operating a business on a designated Main Street district is the availability of funds to improve the profitability of your business. The Baltimore Development Corporation/Baltimore Main Streets recently provided Duka-n-Beauty with the necessary funding needed to build an eCommerce website (www.thekenyanstore.com). Duka-n-Beauty is another hidden gem on Belair-Edison’s Main Street that offers unique products not easily found elsewhere.
However, getting the word out to consumers can be a difficult and expensive process. In this age of the Internet, Duka-n-Beauty knew that they needed an online presence, and BENI was able to connect them to the right resource. Now, Duka-n-Beauty can advertise their products on the web and quickly serve their customers outside of the community with an easy online purchase and shipping process. If you are looking for a truly unique Kenyan product, please visit www.thekenyanstore.com or stop by Duka-n-Beauty at 3406 Belair Road.
