The MidTown Business Association is an independent business association supported by MidTown, Inc.
Its purpose is to sustain, promote and grow business within MidTown Columbus.

The MidTown Business Association (MBA) works to build community among MidTown businesses, to sustain existing businesses, and to encourage growth of new businesses within MidTown. The MBA also encourages the revitalization and redevelopment of underutilized properties in the MidTown area. It hosts quarterly educational meetings, offers technical support from within the MBA membership, and promotes MidTown businesses and MidTown living through joint marketing efforts and publication of The MidTowner, a bi-weekly newsletter.

For more information about the MBA and membership benefits, contact Bitsy Dedwylder at 706.494.1663.

Although we are “Columbus transplants,” we quickly found a home in MidTown. We love the community so much and are proud to be a part of its growth and development. With the help and support of MidTown, Inc., Jackson-Burgin Development, and the MidTown community, we have established a place where MidTown can gather and feel at home, too.

I can say we were really nervous about moving our business.  We needed a bigger building, but business was steady in our old location at a time when other jewelers were going out of business left and right.  The last six years have been terrible for the jewelry industry and relocating was a risk.  The first few months were really scary, but once people realized we were in Midtown, business began growing.  I can only attribute that success to the MBA and the beauty of the new building.   

We’re still the same craftsmen… with a nicer showroom in a supportive community.
