Cargo, Herbivore Clothing, and Wellspent Market featured in Oregon Business Monthly, thanks to Comcast Business
This article highlights the partnerships between the CEIC, Comcast, and Mackenzie to support local District businesses through the Central Eastside Business Recovery Initiative. We were able to provide additional support to retailers, restaurants, and venues as they emerged from the restrictions on gatherings. Pre-pandemic, these three Portland businesses — global marketplace Cargo, vegan goods shop Herbivore, and pantry provisioner Wellspent Market — focused primarily on walk-in customers and in-person events. Now, they are reaching a national customer base thanks to the support they received from this initiative, website improvements, and greater online reach.
