How does Make Ogden support downtown retail?
  • Historic 25th Street has long been the center of the city’s downtown experience. And now, there is an opportunity for retailers to become part of Ogden’s next chapter and expand the treasured center of influence in Ogden – and for existing retailers to benefit from the exposure to more visitors, as well as new employees/residents. 
  • The growth in downtown residences will also expand the customer base for retailers – many living within walking distance of existing businesses.
  • Here, visitors (as well as new and existing residents) will experience authentic downtown Ogden while also being surprised by a host of places to shop, dine, and explore – making downtown Ogden even more attractive as a top destination for visitors and shoppers.
