Business Development

Eat. Shop. Play. Stay. 


Scranton Tomorrow is proud to organize

Small Business Saturday in Downtown Scranton  with its partners.

"Downtown Scranton is very safe and it's manageable. There's great energy from local colleges and a lot of new businesses are opening up. It's a new downtown. It's electric. It's eclectic." 

                     - Joshua Mast, President, Scranton Tomorrow &
Business Development Committee Chairperson

Our Charge

Scranton Tomorrow's Business Development Committee strives to position the Downtown Scranton Business District as the center of the community, and the hub of economic activity. The group meets quarterly to brainstorm, plan, and execute their vision to develop new traditions for a growing business district.

Our Projects & Promotions

Designed to enhance the charm of historic Downtown Scranton, 100 banners showcase the new Downtown Scranton Business District brand. They’ve been placed in key shopping and dining areas from Lackawanna Avenue to Mulberry Street, and from Jefferson to Franklin Avenues. The project will continue with the addition of 140 more banners in 2020.
Indie Week
Business is booming during “Independents” Week in Downtown Scranton! The annual Scranton Tomorrow promotion coincides with July 4th festivities hosted by our partners on Courthouse Square. All week long, visitors to the Downtown enjoy special promotions celebrating the spirit of local entrepreneurs, and the small businesses that make Scranton so unique.

"Scranton Tomorrow has come such a long way since it started in the early 90s, and it's amazing how much the city has changed in that time, too. It's nice to see so much support from the community and see the economic development. We're all trying to make Scranton the best place it can be."
