Helping To Revitalize Your Downtown

Main Street Paragould’s vision is to realize the full potential of Downtown, with acknowledgment of our historic culture, while aiming towards a new era of development, growth, and productivity.

We work closely with the City and the Paragould Regional Chamber of Commerce to continue to enhance, grow, and preserve the Downtown Historic Commercial District, and to support small, independently owned small businesses.

Main Street Paragould — Find It Downtown

About Downtown, the destination…

Downtown is the destination where our community springs to life. The Downtown, as a destination, is where we shop, dine, attend local theatre, listen to music, celebrate, host events, give speeches and have parades. It’s both expectant of future achievement and grounded in the knowledge that our Downtown is best expressed as the heart of our community.

Downtown means business! As a commercial district, Main Street Paragould promotes local business. Over 190 businesses are in the Main Street Paragould service area with the vast majority of those businesses being locally owned. Our local business owners live, invest, pay taxes and support the community.

As a historic district, Downtown holds our stories and protects our cultural assets. Perhaps most importantly, it promotes quality of life for all residents and our out of town visitors. It fosters our sense of “place”.
