Downtown Update: More Small Businesses Choosing South Milwaukee

Our downtown small business momentum continues.

In addition to the new soul food restaurant opening on Saturday — and the work happening with the Bucyrus Club and public space project — I’ve had the chance to welcome a couple small business owners to town recently.

First, I cut a ribbon at Hometowne Realty to South Milwaukee last month, at 911 Milwaukee Ave. Owner Jim Janikowski, his mother, Marilyn, and agent Randy Wesley all have strong South Milwaukee ties, and it’s great to see them return home!

Let’s also welcome Off the Beaten Path to downtown South Milwaukee.

The record and music shop opened earlier this month at 1219 Milwaukee Ave., after moving from Bay View and the East Side before that. Owner Chris Kruse is excited for his new home, and I’m excited this true destination business is now in South Milwaukee. The store is a must-see for music lovers, and he wants to bring live music to his location, too. Very cool.
