A $2,719 facade grant reimbursement, from the PA Department of Community & Economic Development, was provided to East End Coffee Company, 18 East Market Street, in the heart of the downtown. The storefront received improvement in the form of an awning recovering and painting of the two-story masonry structure. In partnership with Lewistown Borough, Downtown Lewistown, Inc. conducted an inspection of the property outlining work to ensure exterior code requirements were met. Following an assessment by the DLI Design Committee made up of community residents, the contractors; Mid-State Awning and Crossiette Painting & Repair completed the work.
Ryan Cherry, co-owner, added "Downtown Lewistown, Inc. was extremely accommodating of our timeline for completion of the facade work, flexible with finding the right contractors for our project and the design application process was easy."
