“I’ve been a retailer for over 30 years and have come to believe in the power of collaboration.  MSK is by far the strongest downtown association I have witnessed.  MSK has a strong board of directors who all love Kent, and they collaborate with other organizations, downtown businesses, Heritage Ohio, and the National Main Street Center. We have seen huge increases in our sales over the years on the days of the events, and subsequently we hear customers talking of having discovered Kent on the days following events.  Our average number of daily sales (averaged over a year) has steadily increased, more than doubling over the course of the last 5 years. MSK’s contributions to the downtown aesthetics have helped make the downtown a truly beautiful and fun place to visit.  More people are shopping and enjoying Kent every day.”
